The from there is was time to get serious! Mixed up and laid down a coat of sealer primer and then let that sit for a half hour then mixed up the white paint and laid it down followed up with clear. The end result was alright, had some issues with water getting past the water traps on the air hose so made a little mess on the top of the cab, think we can gut and buff it smooth, if not going to have to repaint a portion of the top.
