Painted for less than $500. And NO thats not rusto and a brush or roller. Those are tools for painting a house or shed, NOT your jeep or any other car for that matter!!

no, I used duplicolor spray on bedliner on the exterior..it has a much finer texture than the roll on I used on the interior, and was easy to prime and topcoat

nice, but after just one light wheelin' trip in the east and it would look like this

that's why a lot of the guys around here use the bedliner on the exterior..it helps hide the pinstripes

if I were to do the exterior today (I acquired my bedliner and paint last year), I would get Monstaliner in the newly released color

If you want to do a "quality" job on the "cheap" I would suggest doing all your bodywork and prime it. Finish sand the whole thing with 320 grit and use a red scotchbrite in all the hard to hit areas and corners/cracks. Then use a decent sealer before topcoating. On a jeep I would use Shopline PPG. It's PPG's budget friendly line. Use a Singlestage Urethane topcoat and lay it down nice. At least three coats and you can sand/buff it if need be. Go to any PPG paint supply and ask about shopline. You can also get "decent" industrial coatings. Get an HVLP gun and practice on a bit of scrap metal to get the hang of spraying sides to see how much overlap you can get before it runs. I used a Dupont Singlestage Urethane on my beasty and never buffed it and it's great. It's got good build as well for any scratches that come my way. That being said I did paint and bodywork for 12 years, so as far as spraying technique I had that down. Another word of advice would be to have a compressor good enough to hold a steady 90 psi under full load. And pay attention to considering a watertrap filter. Hot compressors send out hot air and as it cools in the airlines it condensates thus shooting water out with your paint. All paintjobs are 90% prepwork. Good luck to you!
