Seriously, it isn't hard to get a decent paint job with a rattle can. The key is to use smooth passes and keep the can close to the same distance away.

You'd be surprised how bad these guys are with paint cans, you should see recoils Jeep up close, and he was my biggest critic when I was doing James Jeep!

:rolf: I only have one run from spraypaint on my Jeep. That was from the gloss can when I painted the grill inserts, and it is small. There is semi-gloss on there now.

Painting with a gun is 10 times easier, it is the prep work between coats that sucks.

Luckily it only takes about 5 minutes to take each corner off so I may have Rod throw a couple more coats on it. Til then, oh well. For being so picky about some things, this doesn't bother me much. Once I put them to use, bare aluminum will be showing through and I have no intention on touching them up very often purely because I don't have to. That's it for tonight, the second one is hanging up and drying in front of a fan.

Eh, it's not fine but I'm fine with it. One more thing--any bright ideas on how to get a stripped tailgate bolt (holding the hinge and tailgate together) out? The bolt has a broken bit inside of it. It has to come out tomorrow. It can't be cut and the stuck bit is pretty damn hard and has been in there for over a year.

Drilling it out is really your only option. I found that if you have bits differing in size by 1/32, use a bit that is 1/32 smaller than the bolt. You can usually crimp the end with a pair of pliers and twist it out. If not, you can tap it.

My paint job has evened out over time. Dont let rod fool ya. Even he cant get rattle can to lay perfect on a large area. (see the blue furys hood) If you or I want to get it perfect then go to harbor freight and get a gun and buy the rustoleum by the quart thin it out and spray. The only reason Im not doing that is because Im having my entire Jeep painted to match.

A couple more random pictures from last week. I adjusted the lowers out to ~16.25" (and lengthened the uppers for pinion angle). This is as long as I can go with the current amount of up travel and the constraint of the gas tank skid.

Full bump on both sides. I finally got around to cutting and grinding the old track bar mount down but didn't take a pic.


Diff-gas tank skid clearance. ~1/8"





I went ahead and did all that while dropping the gas tank to replace the emissions lines. Now time to go finish up the corners.

Really Jerry?


Besides, I was standing on your front bumper trying to paint that(with a breeze), and rattle cans don't work well pointing down, and unless you have a top feed gun, spray guns don't do much better.

I don't want to take crappy dark pictures so I'll take some tomorrow. Woke up this morning and finished up the corners, bolted them up, put the tailgate back on, cut out the tail light holes, and got them wired. Dave helped me wire them up correctly tonight and they are freakin BRIGHT. In his words while standing behind the Jeep, "I feel like I just got hit in the chest with a lightsaber." Again, the corners fit like a glove. The only thing I can say about the paint is it's dry. I'll have Rod work his magic on them later but for now, they'll get the job done.
