painting my xj with bathtub paint

Hey all this is my first post here on the forums I own a 1988 jeep Cherokee limited.
I will be painting my jeep today with bathtub paint lol I know I know alot of people will probably kick me in the *** for it I just bought my xj a few weeks ago it has a 3 inch lift with 31x10.5x15s it was pretty damn rough no door panels all the clear coat was peeling off the hood was rusted two doors didn't open it has no lock cylinders i even found a few black widows in there haha, but its coming along its kind of a daily driver/offroad toy and like any car it has issues
me and my neighbor were outside bored last night when all of a sudden he said jokin around lets paint your heep see how it turns out right away i was like hell what's the worst that can happen so we got to sanding and removing a few things took it to the dollar car wash rinsed it off and started masking we didn't do any body work really cause well we couldn't afford bondo or even a rattle can lol. This was a really quick job i took off some stuff but not that much. all in all it was fun we stayed up till 3am prepping and spraying Right now its baking in the sun i wanna post pics up but i don't know how!?

To post a pic you have to first upload them on a hosting site like photobucket. Then you have to copy and paste the IMG tag from there to here

They sell epoxy appliance paint at ace hardware for 7 bux. Worked well on my drive shaft. Dried amazingly fast as well. Great alternative to powdercoating, since I have a tiny oven.
