Ill definitely get one when I'm over again. I think we have to put a fuel pump in soon. It wouldn't start for us last night, which is weird because it started perfectly every time and drove 40 miles home perfectly.

I'd be interested in a step by step write up about how you did it. As cool as the paint job is, I want to run from some Dino's in mine because I'm scared of heights.

I would love a Jurassic Park yj!

OK step by step?
1. Start joking with a friend about how Cool it would be to paint your Jeep like a fighter jet.
2. Just for kicks have a fellow JF member mock it up in Photoshop.
3. 15 minutes after seeing the mock up run to the paint store willy-nilly with no plan what so ever and just buy crap.
4. Get home and crush a 6pack of pbr while you destroy your Jeep in the driveway. Make sure you don't label anything and that you just throw all the parts in a huge pile without any regard for organization.
5. While chain smoking and moving onto your 2nd 6er, hit the whole Jeep with some 180 grit to knock off the clear coat.
6. At about 1am decide to keep plowing onward and slap on a couple coats of paint. This is critical. Make sure you're just tired enough, and just drunk enough to get a ton of drips, sags, bubbles and runs in the paint without noticing.
7. Wake up in the morning to check out the sweet progress. Fight back the tears at the mess you've created. Wet sand with some 220. For what feels like a year. And just when you're sure your elbow is going to give up the ghost and fall from your arm, decided that you really don't mind about the afore mentioned blemishes. I mean it's a Jeep right?
8. Two more coats of pain, about four hours apart. Make sure it's 100*+ out and you are shirtless. You really want your back to burn nice and good during this phase.
9. Next the weather window needs to slam shut. You want it to piss rain for like 5 days straight so you can spend your time just staring at what used to be a yj while deeply regretting the project. When the rain clears and it hits 108* it's again time to go.
9. Wet sand once with 400 then with 600. When the wet, watery, paint dust bakes onto the Jeep, and you spend two hours trying to scrub it off, just decided that more paint will hide it and roll on another two coats.
10. Wake up early on a Friday and wet sand with 600. At this point you should feel numb below the neck and confident that should you decide to go on a murderous rampage, you will not leave fingerprints due to sanding them off during all the hand sanding you've been doing. Two more coats....
11. At about 9pm start painting everything else that has been stripped off the Jeep. Crack a beer confident that you'll have it all back together in a couple hours and that you'll be ready for the next mornings wheeling trip. Three hours later, panic.
12. Mask off the mouth, grill, and windshield. Spray it with rattle can. Move onto your next beer after you see it's 1am and you are hours away from done.
13. Finally, it should be about 3:30 am. You get the last bolt in, the last coat of paint on, clean up and shower. It's now 5am and you are wheeling in two hours. Say eff it and drive your new looking yj to get gas then to the nearest all night diner for coffee and food.
14. When the sun finally rises, stare at the yj for the first time in the light. Look over all the mistakes, blemishes, overspray, and screw ups and.....smile! You've done it! It is faaar from perfect, and the job was rushed, but dammit it looks sick! Now go wheel it and break crap!

That pretty much sums it up.

Cheers: D

That's how I roll!
Glad it was worth a chuckle Haha.
it's been a cool project and my Jeep is uniquely mine now, but I think I will end up redoing it down the line to get a slightly higher quality job done. For now I'm happy with it though.

CHEERS
