partial painting

Post by Dne007 » December 8th, 2020, 7:04 pm

Well, I got something done anyway; it was hoping a little too much to get everything painted. The paint shop said I was going to love spraying this, but I'd rather shoot a two stage paint any day. However, I'm amazed how quickly it dries. The last time I sprayed single stage was back in 2009 when I sprayed my '67 Mustang;) However I find it a pecuilar paint similar to flipflop, changes colors, messes with me thinking I missed places when in fact I did not.

Day two of paint, the doors will be tomorrow;)

The hood is pretty good, a couple little lows that I missed, but overall I'm happy with the turn out.

I moved the fender flares and all I could get out of the painting area as I need the fender stands that these were on.

I do want this jeep to at least look like it came in this color by painting all necessary parts. I blasted the battery tray in the cabinet to make it look new;)

Day 3 paint stuff; a painted the doors and unhappy with the way they turned out, easy enough to paint, but that's it until next week. I should be able to put the tub back on the frame sometime next week;) That'd be nice to open up some more room in my garage! ;)

This is coming along great! So clean!

I used to live in Cypress - graduated from Cy Falls HS before moving back to Oklahoma. Lots of good memories of that area.

The dash was quite tattered from sun, fade, a thorough wash and the hit with a couple coats of SEM Graphite and the dash was brought back to its factory color.

Yours truly slip sliding around on floor insulation! lol

A while back I had purchased a set of 5 stock wheels, I had them sandblasted by a local blaster which also blasted the tub, frame and many body parts. one wheel is not in the picture

Yes, the number is JP18, just like the number due to it being the most notable and my kids and grandkids like it;)
