Looks really good.

Just wanted to through in a small savings here for others - I found a 3-pack of 4" foam rollers including handle and paint tray at Harbor Freight for $1.97. Worked great when I did mine.

Wash your CJ and if it is asphalt do the driveway also under the carport real good then rinse well. Next, buy cheap plastic drop cloths from Home Depot or Lowes and set up a 'paint booth'. Make it large enough so the wind cannot blow your 'paint booth' into your freshly painted CJ!

Keep in mind most of the body is vertical not horizontal. The only issue is bumping into it with a leg if you are not careful.

I started at one point and never back stepped my progress around my YJ.
By the time you get to the last part of your CJ the first part will be quite tacky...almost dry if touched lightly. If you can protect the paint for 30 minutes you are usually good to go. If anything drops into the paint like a bug, just wait until the next day. Dig him out, sand lightly with some 400 grit and touch up that spot. Always feather out any 'patch' paint you do.

I'm telling you do not rush, prep well, and if you want decent looking paint for short money it is the way to go trust me. And this is coming from a guy who has only done one rolled on paint job.

Just google up rolled on paint jobs and see what some of the more experienced guys have turned out. It is what gave me the confidence to paint my YJ.

Ok well I started. What I ended up doing was partially disassembling the cj the hood fenders tailgate and windshield are all off and got started on the hood and tail gate sanding them down I think I'm gonna lay plastic down on the floor of my house and roll it on Inside piece by piece. Got a question though what other paint would any body Recommend the paint u used the rustoleum marine coatings is not available in my area I'm station at ft bliss El Paso in the middle of a desert I guess no one had a reason to stock that paint lol

Any good quality paint made for outdoor use that has UV resistance built into it IMHO would be a good candidate for your CJ. Get something that has good coverage and leveling qualities.

They even have water based industrial paints now but they are pricey!

Valspar was mentioned erlier in this thread IIRC and that is just one brand with many more color choices that Rustoleum.

I went with Rustoleum becasue it was on the shelf in the color I wanted. It being topside paint was a plus but I think the 'regular' Rustoleum paint would have been fine to use also.

Looks amazing .. why didnt you throw on some clear coat after seeing it came out so nice, will the paint hold up like that?

Any good exterior metal paint should have the same traits as the Rustoleum. I choose this particular brand/color of Rustoleum because it was the color I wanted, it is great paint and it was on the shelf in front of my nose at my local Home Depot.

I am happy with the finish as it is and I know that there will be repairs made to this old YJ in the near future...rust never sleeps!

The clear coat would make repairs a bit more work. I don't mind work but I avoid any unecessary work like it is poison ivy!

Check out this thread from mopar from a few years ago. The poster, "69chargeryeehaa" is the one to read. He uses the foam rollers and Canadian version of Rustoleum.

The after pic was after I decided to go back to satin, due to desert pinstriping etc...
But to prove how good we got it before we realized we were being just plain dumb..

So I am thinking about doing this on my XJ. Couple questions - It has some spots where the factory paint actually peeled and now has surface rust, I am thinking sand that down, spray can prime, then sand and finish. Any corrections, comments?

Also, I am thinking of going with a matte finish to minimize any inperfections showing. What do you think?
