It looks like little pumper all ready has primer on it? I would spray more though epoxy primer from your local car paint store. If you sand blast I use red flint sand it works better on hard stuff. Just rent a blaster at the rental store and a big compressor 80 cfm is nice. Keep your sand dry ,I only pour in half a hopper at a time, it seems to bulk up and plug other wise. I paint my trucks in fazes Like one day the boom. That seems to be the most important part any way. Then I blast and paint the sides, like the outriggers,pump, and frame(the deck I do last). Use tin foil to cover the Hyd. lines. Also keep some thinner and wipe off over spray while still wet. The cab just DA it down and paint you only have to prime what's bear metal. Buy a cup gun $80 model will work. You can spray with 6 cfm although less will work. I buy PPG AUE-300 paint ask for it at the paint shop. Other wise emron, but emron it final because a repaint won't stick. Most important- Just paint, it will be OK. My brother was a profectionist and never got things painted. I just spray in the yard on a nice day. On the frame use flat black equipment paint, you can even brush that, to cover over spray.

Tks RNP !
I have always liked the "Orange & Cream" fleet.
It has been too rainy to get started, and it is a weekend job, 'cause we need it all week.
We are not missing using wheelbarrows on footings. LOL
I hear you've been busy covering for a broken Mack engine.

Well I keep hearing that I have this 2,000 yard pump job somewhere in Nashville pumping at a rate of 400 yards a day,got another company that is going to help so we got two pumps on the same job for a safety net,the fellow asked to day what PSI I wanted so we are getting 3500 PSI then he asked if it was ok to add 1 1/2 percent retarter fine with me since its hot now,when mud is pumped it will set faster so they will have more time,wish I could fine another operator for a week cause of my line pumping work.

Fly me down Ed I'll run your pump for a week. Give me a paint brush and I'll paint you boom while I'm there too.
