Step 1: Spray Paint Parts.

First, I take the wheel, shock absorber, the cab, the bed, and diff cover. I clean the surface of with alcohol to make the surface not too oily for the spray paint. Next I get ready to spray paints, lay the things out into the group and spray plastic primer the first coat let it dry, and spray at least one more times. I separated in to 2 colors gray color for the wheel hub with red trim, yellow for the shock absorber, and red for the diff cover. Then I spray the colors 2- 3 coats (Make sure that the color stick to all areas, while let the paint dry.

Step 2: Spray Paint the Cab and the Bed.

Then I spray the plastic primer to all pieces. Next I spray white to the cab and bed, because the plastic was red, I need to spray maybe 2-3 times. When it dry, I spray blue for the bed area at least 2-3 times. Then I use masking tape on the outer edge, get ready to spray inside the bed with black paint. I masking tape the front of the cab, and spray blue for the rear of the cab and the fender. Next I masking tape the blue paint and spray yellow for most area and leave some part white, that will be the red and orange stripe. After all the painting is done. I use the masking tape around the window and windshield and use the black marker draw around the window trims. Last get all the small parts spray painted in black.

Step 3: Assembly the Truck.

The last step is to assembly all parts together and add the small parts that painted black, and add the sticker that come in the box. Next I play, it looks very cool and fun. “This way you make the cheap rc truck looks expensive.”
