I don't like the fender flare idea but I will probably paint the rockers black along with the grill. I forgot to paint my cowl cover so I'm going to do that in black as well. My rear bumper is staying black too

I can go either way on the fender flares. But again with a stock Jeep. I just feel the black breaks up the red. If it were me not sure how I would handle the flares on yours though.

Thank you! I had to order another four bottles today as I can definitely see areas I sprayed a little light, like on the hood, doors, etc. It'll also give me a few back-up bottles for touch ups in the future.

I also ordered a roof rack awning for the upcoming Jeep show camping weekend. Our instant-up got destroyed by the wind and bent the bars last year on the beach. I'm excited for that.

Looks good. Think we need to work out some bartering. You paint my jeep and I'll weld something up for you.

If you can modify my rear bumper to a swingout tire carrier then i'll gladly paint it for you given you buy the paint

All said and done around 600. 400 for paint, 200 for prep supplies and unexpected costs.

Lol i appreciate it man, but she's anything but show quality. Plenty of little dings i didnt bother fixing(and I've added a few since), but she definitely looks better than when i got her.


But I'm digging the redliner, you did a great job with it. Thats a lot of work you put in, but it paid off.

Roof rack on, gutter rail mold repair failed and pulled off while tightening down the rack so I clamped it down with some jbweld epoxy, and it's nice and firm now. Good thing I ordered more paint because it flaked some off the roof when it happened.
