That jeep looks great! It's the lights on the fender the snorkle, the fenders and those 2 tone wheels that set it off.

Hey shinigami, did you get your jeep complete? How'd it end up turning out and what was the color you used? The base coat pics look good

that is the final color just need to add one more coat, wet sand it and add decals, does anyone know of anything that will protect the paint from fading while keeping low gloss or flat?

will take a while cause of hard rain and i fell into temptation to hit the floods.need to clean again.

You could use just a low gloss clearcoat. Most clearcoats come in low/semi/high glosses like most other paints. That should keep it from fading. Looking forward to seeing it.

PPG (I think) makes a clear coat that gives all paints a flat or satin look. Go to a dealer and they could hook you up. Its designed to give any paint job a flat look. Big for the rat rod guys.

91 YJ rebuild! Rush to get it driving/wheeling.

To each his own I suppose, but I think your Jeep is an abortion. But keep on keeping on if it makes you happy.

EDIT: Also, anyone else think the numbers stenciled along the side of the hood are crooked?
