Well, it rained some here yesterday morning and I was hoping the paint the tub and grille. Finally around 5:00 it cleared off and I pulled the gun and decided to spray it. Still some things I wish I would have spent more on but you basically have to draw the line. It came out very shiny and looks great. I am very satisfied:

Thanks.

TIPS:
1. Buy a HVLP gun like you see in my hand. (100% better than a regular siphon gun)
2. Buy good paint. (Primer and final)
3. Buy good sand paper.
4. Buy good bondo and spot putty.
5. If you feel it, you will see it.
6. Completely sand down stripes/decals to paint underneath them. THEY will show thru.
7. Wipe down the sanded primer with compatible thinner before final coat.
8. Buy new masking tape when masking things off. You'll be glad you did when you take it all back off.

Anything else, just ask me. I have done both this jeep and my truck now, so I know some of the basic tips.

With a HVLP gun you don't need a big compressor. I did my whole jeep with a 5 gallon compressor. But, bigger is always better.
