Are you tired of driving a multicolored truck? Are your buddies razzing you about your blue fender and white hood? Then this story will be the perfect cure to those problems. With the help of Mike Cotton Midwest Images, the builder of the December cover truck, we are going to give you a quick primer on primer. We're going to show you a basic way to tint the primer for a little cooler result and also show you what each knob is and what it does on a spray gun. With this information and the instructions on the side of the materials, you should be able to cover up that custom bodywork you did and happily cruise your single-color ride.

The Final Word
If you have everything right, your primer will dry just like this and give you a nice satin finish. Obviously, Mike is a pro and he can do this in his sleep, but if you are new, just practice and it won't take long to get it right. If you are still a little scared to spray, contact Mike or a professional shop and get your ride in one color.
