I am real happy with the results personally. It is not a show boat by any stretch of the imagination. But it gets tons of positive comments wherever I go. I think what catches everyone's eye is the color. For an older Jeep it is not common to see a light colored one. I still have work on the rocker panels. That is going to hsppen when it gets warmer.....much warmer!
3 quarts of Rustoleum Topside Sand Beige paint $48.00
1 quart of Rustoleum paint $12.00
6 pack of 4” & 6” high density rollers $18.00
6 ea of 1” & 4” foam brushes $12.00
1 small pack of 320 grit wet/dry sandpaper $ 4.00
1 gallon odorless mineral spirits $14.00
That is ~$108.00 more if you need paint pans etc.
I went wth the Topside paint because I felt it had more UV protection in it Annnd it was the exct color I wanted! But the regular Rustoleum paint holds up well for years also!
Many other companies have good outdoor paint also.
I had to use the foam brushes on the front fenders where they meet the grill, and the windshield cowl where it meets the sheet metal holding the vent intake.
I did use the foam brushes on the first coat for the door jambs and grill slots. But, after that I used the HD foam rollers do do pretty much everything for a few exceptions mentioned.
If you can't get it with the roller hit it with the foam brush!
The windshield frame, tailgate and doors I used both.
Before I started up laying down another coat I had a wet roller and foam brush so I could go either way.
