I painted my Geo Tracker today. Check it out!
« on: July 13, 2009, 09:35:04 PM »
That's right!  For the first time since I bought it on 2/13/08, it's all one color!   I bought a Wagner Power Painter at Lowe's...and bought some latex exterior paint at WalMart.  I had the paint mixed to a nice satin OD green.  It turned out pretty nice I think.

Here's a link straight to my photobucket and all the Tracker goodness...(it's been a driving project since I bought it)....and I'll post some pics as well.

Latest pics...










Hope you like it.   I can't stop staring at it.   ;D    I just wish it didn't have IFS.  It's such a HUGE obstacle for suspension lifts...ugh.  Anyway..back on topic.   Tracker looks great.  All the body work is pretty much taken care of...obviously...since I was able to paint it...   ::)     It runs great!  Like a million bucks.  I love it.  I still want a Prerunner though.   ;)

thanks man.  I'm digging it too.  Now I have to go out and see what it looks like covered in mud.  Less green and more brown I suspect.  =)


Also..thanks for the props...but to be honest...there's tougher trackers out there.  Mine's quite mild in fact, but it does look the part at least.  And it can hang with the best of them....for a time.  =P

Yeah I'm sure there are a few out there that have more $$$ dumped into them and more high end parts... but, that thing's got soul!! lol

The paint looks great, good job man. Now let's see how she looks with some mud on her!

yeah, there's trackers with more $$$ in them, but yours is simple, yet functional and that's more my style
