* What is your experience with auto painting?
* What tools do you have?

If you are highly experienced and can handle a tough color such as metallic silver, then I doubt that you would be asking these questions.

If you are just starting and want to get into the hobby, its your truck, I say go for it. Just plan on my program of applying then sanding it off then asking these guys WTH did I do wrong, reapply, sand some more, ask more questions etc etc etc. Hopefully learning a little bit each time.

Eventually you'll learn and maybe you'll be a natural at it, and get a difficult color perfect the first time. Odds are against it.

Not a cheap hobby (at all!) but fun.

Post photos as you go.

I cant believe;
1) How much that I have learned from you guys
2) How much I still need to learn!

The weather is starting to turn around here (already dropping down to the mid forties at night, brrr) so my questions will be limited until next spring!!
