Rustoleoum gloss black, i prefer krylon paint and primer all in one but lowes is the only place that sells spray paint to minors. My parents wont get it for me even if i give them the money so,,
They look decent. Not perfect but good enough. The 2nd coat is drying and then il post pics. Its storming now so il just put them on in the morning uness i can pull it in the garage.

so i really messed up. first of all i didnt primer it 1st.. really dumb.. then i flipped it off a little too early and it stuck to the newspaper so i completely f'd that up. so now its in primer and its time for phase 2. Im going to set an alarm throughout the night to paint. Should be interesting.

Well I took them, cleaned as much of the primer paint off I could and then sanded it with some 200 grit. I just layed the 1st coat of paint on the top about 30 mins ago. At 12 ima go flip it and paint that side then wait an hour and repaint the back and then at 2 get up and paint again! If I go to sleep im going down to tx next week (dillon il pm you if I have any extra time ) and we've barely packed. The garage is nearly done, of course when I need some paint thinner its packed who knows where. Then I might have to leave the jeep in tx :'(

haha hp d44 is a great choice, thats proly what ima do when i do my front swap. Also the guy who traded mirrors with me said he might be interested in my rims.. so if he is and i can get the right money (beleive it or not apperently these are desirable just not on a jeep.. maybe a durango or sumtin who knows?) il order either soft 8s or pro comp 52s. then proly money leftover towards the 33 fund.
