You should do at least *some* prep work.

Even if you are not interested in putting much money into the project - at least go over it all with some sandpaper.

Since you are going for camo - a bit ruffer paper would do more prep with less effort. You are not going for “shine” so the ruffer grain paper would be good - maybe like 200 grit or 400 max.

If you don’t at least ruff up the smoother areas - the paint will come of pretty easy. It needs something to “stick to”

Even primer will fall off if on a smooth surface.

So ruff it up at least some.

after sanding,wash the truck,then take a tack cloth {can get at auto paint supply house} and go over truck to remove lint,if you want a smoother paint job. This going to be beater or something you want to drive occasionally?

Where the two colours merge, use two spray guns together with the two colours - it helps to blend them together and blurs the join. Learned that from a friend in the Royal Air Force, she painted fighter aircraft.

Red scratch pads "brillo pad" without chemicals .. dont use S.O.S. type pad. Just the red or green scratch pad and some water will rough it nicely for a rattle can job. Use a very light coverage style so the paint will take 3 or 4 coats to cover the old color. You can free from the camo spots or use newspaper and masking tape to get clean lines. Dont paint any light coverings red or blue that can get you in trouble. Have a blast. Also a jar of vaseline smeared onto your bumpers and tires will keep the over spray from sticking.
