Scrapped that idea. Headunit had a terrible interface. Sold it to my neighbor.

Started detailing it, gonna finish tomorrow after work.

That door was covered in hard mud. Brushes and cleaner git it done though.

Considering using monstaliner over paint to do the entire Jeep in. Would go with smurfadelic blue or whatever the stupid name is.

Hmm.

Yeah, but the body needs fixed, and after all the rust is repaired and the new panels on it will look like ****. Respraying a metallic silver is above my skill level and I wouldn't pay the money to get a real 3000 dollar paint job.

Thank you!

I'd support this idea:



Monstaliner also makes a color similar to silverstone metallic

Hadn't seen a reason to post, but have read and been following Starscream for a while now. Now I have a reason to post. For all that is good and right in this world don't smurf-up your XJ! What is rusting that is still painted silver?

Even then, that doesn't take care of the quarter panels. They're rusting under the 3rd window on both sides. Even if I patch it and kill the rust, I'd have to paint it.

Monstaliner has a color called "light quartz grey" that looks similar to silverstone

I had a silver 01 that was rusting under the rear 3rd window as well. Must be something about silver.
