89 Chieftain repaint

Still a lot more work to do, but the hard stuff is over.
Need to finish the grill, and rubber window seal stuff with the Plasti Dip
Detail stuff to do, and may go back and redo some little spots when I am in the mood.
It is not awesome. The perfectionists will pick it apart, but, I have 6K in my RV, so I don't care.
I have around 350 in the paint job.

Is the whole vehicle dipped, or what kind of paint did you use?

Rustoleum Hammered Metal Finish, silver, copper, and Green,
Grill, and rubber window moldings will get plasti-dipped in black.
Plasti-dip really makes the black plastic, and rubber parts look new
I like the texture, and pattern of the hammer finish,
Had a bit of trouble spraying it, so I went with brush, and roller.
Some of the reasons I went with hammer finish, is the paint is readily available, Touch up, and repairs are easy, you can sand it with 80 grit paper, and once you put the paint on, no scratches show.
