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.
