sand down the entire car, you dont have to remove the old paint completely. Just sand until the original paint is dull and smooth then paint the car with primer, sand the primer smooth then paint it the color you wish.

There are several articles on the web and here on jeepforum about painting your car with Rustoleum paint. Either by rolling it on or spraying it on. Usually it can be done under 50 bucks with decent results. Remember, the key to a good paint job is in the prep work. i plan on painting my jeep over springbreak with Rustoleum.
here is a good link

hope this helps!

I would at least consider a semi gloss, flat is going to look horrable. Like those people who drive there cars around with grey primer.

Snob.....

...my 1st three cars were in primer.....

besides.....you don't have to wax it, or worry about scratches, or wash it ( just spray more primer over the dirt...).....I can go on and on....

^^ If you are asking about vinyl, it would probably be a couple hundred for a jeep. You can get it at any sign making place.

I disagree. If done well it can look amazing.

i Would go with a Matte/Satin black look...if you do just a flat black the paint will start to chalk up after a while and if you touch it with your fingers you will be able to see the marks on it alot...


i went with Kustom shop "Hot Rod Black" it is a Satin Black paint.
