Hehe, I'm right there with you buddy. I really do want a fresh coat of paint though, just makes that no car payment that much sweeter. I also find it annoys people when I tell them it's 12 years old. hehe And I say "I've never had a problem with it" haha lies! As long as they don't come to this site, they'll never know. hehe

The advantage of owning an old jeep is that you get to learn. Bad CPS, warped rotors, dead fuel pump, death wobble, etc is all knowledge for the decades of future vehicles that you will own. If you plan correctly, you will be able to scream at you son (like Paul Teutul Senior, in the Orange County Choppers) and have them perform the work once you are tried

I agree 100%, I owned late 80's and early 90's Mercedes for the same reason. I knew everything that could go wrong with them, and knew how to fix them because I saw it happen to everyone else first on the mailing list I was on. All in all, fairly reliable cars. The new models these days though, ugh. . .

But, paint is there for more than just looks. I have a lot of salt water around me, and it eats metal like a fat kid eats ( or I eat ) cake. I have to keep up on bare metal or I'll be driving around in a rust bucket.
