Bought a couple cans of black Rustolium spray paint and sprayed most of the underneath. Not only does it cover any spots where its nicked or peeling it makes it look better. Of course you have to remove any mud or dirt. I do this once a year instead of using undercoating which I believe can trap moisture. So far so good, could not find any rust under there .

Just a slightly modded XJ with a little lift, some armor, four mud tires and a few decals, so far.

Cleaned her out some, and tinted the windows.

Bought a windshield for 60 bucks to put on her some time this week.

Yeah.. Not much really.

Went to Autozone to complete my shopping list: size 50 torx, can of black spray paint, tirer restorer gunk, sandpaper. Then taking one of my old rims (took them off Tuesday-traded for Soft 8's) and painting them black and mounting a new tire for a full size spare...
Then I might wash and vacuum it

Lifted the battery tray only to find horrible rust, some which was deeper than the surface :ugh:

I sanded it down as much as I could and get some rust converter, smoothed it out again then proceeded to put rust treatment paint on it with a layer of flat black rustoleum "stop rust" on top.

Fixed my hatch and bumper, you can see the paint is way to white to match the 20 yr old paint. but I'm planing on getting the jeep resprayed in a few months.

the damage


Fiberglass kitty hair


Sanded and smoothed ( i like to use as little bondo as possible )


Painting Spray primer and then rustolem roll on.


now onto the bumper tab that snapped off


All done!
