Jeep YJ, JD Blitz Black, and roll on paint job...

I bought my jeep round a year ago and the guy I bought it from was in process of repainting it. He ran into money troubles and had to sell it to me with just a coat of prime on it. Now that I am out of school for the summer, wanted to take a week and paint my jeep.

I want to paint it John Deere Blitz Black and I don't have the facilities or the money to spray it on so I am going to roll it on. I was looking for suggestions and tips from people who have painted their own jeeps and especially those who rolled it on.

Any tips or help is greatly appreciated.

There are different color charts for different years of all Jeep products. I believe this one covers 1994 only IIRC...I've had it for a while and don't remember exactly.

rolledon.com

forum with some tips and tricks to putting this type of paint on. I'm going to attempt a rolled on job myself at the end of summer. From the research I've done you should try to use the Rustoleum "topside" paint. It has a UV protectant in it that the regulat "professional" grade does not.

I will gotta get a small airbrush kit from sears or something...i have a compressor, so I will more than likely use an airbrush instead of a roll on technique...found one place that carries the paint but just in rattle cans, found another website that carries it in quarts and gallons but its more expensive...we'll see I got rust spots and the speed stripes (still on from the factory) I'll post before and after pics on here

Definitely take pictures all during the process. It will be so worth it to ask questions and help others during the process. Get a 30$ spray gun from sears or walmart, mix your paint and paint thinner, wear a mask and be patient. Make sure your mock up paint booth is VERY well ventilated, both for safety and your paint drying.

And you can never prepare the surface enough--block sand block sand block sand. You will hate it, and your hand will hurt, the sanding stage will take a long time, but damn your paint will look good. Get some buddies or brothers to help.
