I am purposely not clearing mine because if I scrape it against a tree I can just sand it smooth then respray it without having to worry about fixing the clear coat. Also when it fades it is easier to freshen up vs when clear starts to flake and peel. I also have no paint booth or painting supplies LOL. For a $40 rattle can job though I think it looks good so far. I am going to use my ICE paste wax as it protects flat paint (also black plastic) and adds a slight shine to it as well.

The clear coat I use is really easy to work with and I shouldn't have a problem touching up paint on the future. It will also hopefully last 15-20 years. But I have the space and gear to shoot it. With that said it will cost about $300 in paint, haha. But that looks REALLY good! I can't wait to do mine.

That looks killer! I just don't know if I could do that kind of commitment to my jeep.

Thanks guys. My paint was a crappy single stage POS job that they just sprayed right over the factory paint with no prep at all they did not even clean it properly!!! They just sprayed right over the dirt, and bugs so it was peeling badly in spots. I ground down all the peeling paint then wet sanded and scotch brited it. I still have another coat on the hood as well as the passenger doors, front bumper, roof and grill to spray.

Exactly. That's how mine was. Both would work half the time, and then the left wouldn't work at all. Swap the relay.

Driver's side fuse panel. It's easier if you remove the lower covering below the steering wheel. The plastic above the steering wheel next to the guage just pulls off. Then it will show 2 of the screws to remove the lower panal. Then there should be a screw that is covered by the door when closed. Then there are two screws at the bottom of the panel. The plastic around the steering wheel can stay on. Let me know if that makes sense.

Yea, I can figure it out. Thanks for the help! I'll try tomorrow!

No problem. If you know somebody else that has the relay it's worth a shot to just try their relay. I think the only place to buy is from the dealer and it's not cheap.
