Default Powder Coating XJ build

Okay, So I do custom Powder Coating for a living and I came across the bright idea of pretty much refinishing everything. Being as I am going to piece a lift together, everything purchased for the jeep (new or used) will be stripped down and PC'd.

Plans:

exterior paint... Dark Kiwi Metallic
Everything Else.... Matte Black and Dark Kiwi Metallic

My plans are for this thing to be show quality but I will still rip up the trails.

Its going to be a long and drawn out build.... Probably more than a year long, but everything that I powder coat will be posted and I plan on coating something every day depending if whatever I removed will cause me to be immobile.


Pics to come!
