    Custom Camo Painted Truck

    What do you think of my son's truck? His artist friend did it. It's hand-painted and free-form, not a stencil and not a wrap. The paint is actually hard to scratch.

    I wouldn't do it on my truck, mostly because Im the mechanical/functional/not to worried about how it looks as long as I get there type. But that is an awesome job he did! I would add up what it cost him (materials, equipment, shop, ect) and his time and figure out what he would have to charge to make an hourly rate he is happy with.

    Now that's some talent right there, love it. That would look awesome on my cargo trailer build but probably couldn't afford it.

    Cost is $2,750 on a large truck with a lot of detail like my son's. You'd have to send a pic and dimensions of your trailer to get a quote.

    It does draw a lot of attention, especially when they see the detail up close. It's pretty amazing work.

    Honestly, that's less expensive than I would have thought. Especially for a totally hand painted, one of a kind custom job.

    Looks great, but would never pay that.
    I'd consider $20 worth of spray paint though.

    Looks real nice. I predict he will get a lot more business soon.

    I have a hard enough time finding my Jeep when I park it in the mountains. I'd lose that truck.
