Looks good!! Did you solvent wipe to remove any wax and sand the paint to flat first? It looks like in the first pictures that you didn't. If you didn't you will be touching it up alot.
It can always look good, but if not preped right, the paint will flake right off.

Thanks for all the comments.

I wet sanded the jeep is parts so that is why the first pics look like that.

I am located in Old Bridge, NJ.

I also finished up the white star on the hood with the invasion circle, Ill get pics up of the completed job tomorrow

It looks bad a**! I'm still waiting to see the hood when it has the star on it, if you're going to put the star on.

Here she is all paint finished. Still need to fix up the star a bit, it came out a little messy.

Pictures kind of suck. Ill try to get better ones.

I have a question..... since I'm repainting my Jeep it's original color (spinnaker blue metalic) I don't have to change any info on my Jeep's title or registration, but what if I did decide to change the color of my Jeep, how does that work on the legal paperwork?
