first jeep time to have some fun with it!

i got a 98 tj earlier this year and have been looking for a lot of inspiration from here. i haven't done much with it so far but in the next couple month i will be putting lots of love into it


here is a look at it when i first got it.

decided to get rid of the gold fender flares and have then made into black. Did lots of searching and found that a lot of people use krylon plastic paint. used a heat gun to take off the old paint then sanded them down with 200 grit sandpaper. they came out pretty good for a just buying 12 bucks worth of paint. i should have done light coats but oh well its more of a quick fix to get rid of the gold till i get bushwackers on it.

here is the final result
