may i ask you what you used on your frame ? looks nice, i need to do the same to mine also. zero rot, but the factory coating has flaked off in a few minor places and has developed surface rust and id like to take care of it soon, probally around the same time i do ufc skids in the spring.

ty, why did you not opt for something like por15 or rust inhibitor paints that people hold in higher regards to rustoleum ? just curious...or do you feel rustoleum is as good.

I see that youre from ny, we have really no snow fall down here so that plays a big part for me. Ive always used rustoleum on all my projects. The hammered brand is almost impossible to get off really the only time ive had it come off is when i was up against a rock.

I know some of you have been chomping at the bit to see whats new on the tj???? proble not . I have something better than parts at least for me. I am the new owner of a heated 1300sqf garage no more laying in the gravel no more getting wet and not having enough light list goes on and on. The garage has a 90gl compressor and a 200 amp service to run my 230 iron man that has 2 inches of dust on it. Really a dream come true for me.

Srry I didn't reply sjones for some reason I haven't been getting my emails. We have finally moved into are new house and I had a chance to start cleaning out the shop , which means im just about ready to start on the jeep again. I've played with my new welder a little bit u don't realize how much better life can be when u have the right tools, night and day difference. Hopefully I can get started in a week or two until then here are some pics.
