Its all about the prep work and how you lay it down when you spray it. If you do a half assed job preping with any type of paint you should expect it to look like crap and eventually peel off.

Let it sit at home all alone. I haven't driven it or touched it since Monday. I'm going to start diagnosing why my HVAC temp control door isn't working either tonight or tomorrow night.

Breakage is very common.

Rear bumper is good to go until the replacement arrives. Also realized why I bother going to work every day.

It could be as simple as something being unplugged though, as it stopped working after I swapped the heater core and evap. Hopefully it's something simple and I don't end up having to pull the dash again to fix it. I just haven't had time to start hunting it down yet.

That's probably the case for you then. I wasn't aware you swapped that stuff. You probably missed a plug or didn't get one plugged in completely.

I wanna make sweet love to your rig....even though the carpets don't match the drapes!..Haha..time to paint that cladding bro.



OT: got my Ratmonkey tee in the mail, put it on and got my *** to work! Went to the body shop and put the jeep on the frame puller! (Cost me a freakin beer!)

Then took her home and put her back together! Looks like a Zj again and not a wounded animal.

Still need to buff out the rest of her to match the paint a bit better and get the pinstriping done. The bumper will be here tomorrow, ill work on that in the coming weeks before the install, but I feel much better now!

RIP Ratmonkey.
Much Inspiration!!

Sry for the crumy phone, night pics
