Paint my wagon! What color?
 
I want to do something different with my jeep. It used to have the wood panneling but it was removed before I bought it. Now this is how it looks (first pic) and I cant decide what I want to do with it... paint it inbetween the cladding, remove the cladding all together, then maybe bed line up to the mid-door.

Anybody have an opinion? If I were to take off all the cladding it has little nubs that would need to be ground off.

These are some potential options:

I like the green, but maybe not that bright of a green. I also like the idea of rhino liner, but leave the cladding on and do it the liner under that.

I say take off the cladding and bed line up the doors. ^^^Though a dark green in that section and bed line on the bottom would be really really cool

bed line the whole thing

I'd say pic one of the new jeep colors like the rescue green metallic from the 07-08 wranglers or the new orange and do a one solid color. That would make it really clean and definately different from all the other ZJ's out there

Plum Crazy Purple!

I think painting black to match your bumpers or bed lining under the cladding pieces(the fender edges and bottoms of doors) would look good. But leave the pieces on.

going to paint a wagon going to paint it good going to use an oil base paint because that wood is pine


I am painting my hole xj that bright lime green. U will all see when I start my build thread....

Some Herculiner where you 'shopped in the colors would look nice.

If you decide to go color, I would keep it dark (dark red, dark green, etc). I think it would better match the look of your Jeep and add contrast rather than clash.

The only thing I would paint on my whole jeep would be bed liner. One day of serious wheelin and that new paint will look like doo doo.

Yeah that might be better for more of a DD or someone who doesn't do major wheeling. Line-x is quality, but will be $$$$$

Jones 12-14-2008 10:32 PM

Thats very true line-x is not cheap
