thanks, its been a lot more work than i anticipated, the whole hiline thing really throws a wrench in the whole inner fender configuration. i got the other side cut and my emissions and relay box mounted so now i just need to mount me sliders and trim them, then its finally ready for paint. as soon as the weather turns around anyways... looks like 20s and snow this week... not exactly ideal painting weather...

LSU TJ, yours are def coming along nicely as well, really like the color choice!

Yea, I know the feeling on the painting weather. I had the humidity and cold get to the final coat on one of the sliders and had to wait a week and redo it. No fun.

And, thanks. I was not a 100% on the two tone thing but figured if I did not like it the panels just unbolt and shoot em again. I like the way it turned out though.

PAINT!!!!!!!!!!!! well, kinda... primer anyways...
Nick stealing the spot light from my handi work

pass side

looking down the edge... not too shabby for being a body work guy

also sprayed the rockers yesterday


needs one more coat of primer and then ill start color.
Im having a weird issue so hopefully someone on here has some exp w/ spraying....
I have a filter then dryer then 3/8 line to a regulator attached to my gun. I have a HUGE pressure drop coming out of my dryer... like from 125 psi to ~60 psi. not a big deal because i need to spray between 40-60 psi. but my regulator isnt really regulating... pressure builds to about 100 psi and then once i spray it goes down to about 25 psi. no matter if the regulator is open fully or not.
the issue is i can only spray in burst of about 12 inches then i have to wait. its a brand new regulator, dryer, and filter... im gonna put another reg on but i also dont understand why im getting such a pressure drop over the dryer... anybody got any advice?

No worries. I just wish I had more mechanic in me. Great visionary, but always need to rope in a few friends to get it accomplished!

thanks, i love the color of my jeep. a lot of people in my club have asked why not just black or grey, but i really would hate to cover up all that color with boring ol black...
