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..

Your truck came out nice, and dark paint is harder to mask any oppsies!

Couple of questions for you. Are you as ignorant about painting a vehicle as I am? The pictures tell me it came out good. Do you like the results?

I ask because I think the whole process was actually very easy to do even with any limitations one might have.

I am no shape, way or form any type of 'paint meister', not even a rattle can wizard... Yet, I am very pleased that it was as easy as it is to do and came out as well as it did.

No one should be afraid to try this paint method for their vehicle.

Your YJ looks good ,, But you should have changed out the front clip to a CJ front clip,,, Then it would look real nice,,, I have used Rust-o-leium paint on a few of my Jeeps,,, My 87 CJ-7 came to me with truck bed dull black & very ruff,, used rust-0 on it ,, Had to use a 4 inch house brush,, came out real nice ,,, My 59 3B will have rust-o on it,, Butt it will be sprayed ,,, & Rust-o make's a Clear Coat also ,,,

Like I said your YJ is looking good...

Before you hit this YJ with sandpaper make sure you wash and dry it first then clean the entire car with an absorbant coths and oderless mineral spirits. That insures you have done your best to removed all the wax, dirt, oils from the painted surfaces.
Been meanin to ask you about this...
Wouldn't you want to give it a good wash after you've sanded?...to get rid of all dust particles immediately prior to layin on the paint?

All I did was wipe it down with a damp cloth soaked in thinner after a very light hit with wet 400 grit.

The goal is not to completely break the surface of the paint, but to simply knock off any insect heads!

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.

Laybackman, I think I missed something. You used Rustoleum which does not have UV protection, right?

If so, I wanted to ask you how the paint on your body and hardtop are doing today? I've seen some truly awful paint jobs (parched, chalky) on some newer vehicles in my town, and I suspect that they are DIY jobs.

I have almost everything necessary to paint my YJ body and hardtop with Rustoleum enamel, but I need to be clear on some things.

I am fairly sure that Rustoleum has UV protectant in their exterior paint. That is their claim to fame isn't it? To hold up to the weather over time.

I went with the topsider paint because it should be even better paint since it is used on marine surfaces above the water line AND it came in the color I wanted.

My paint looks like the day I did the final coat if you can ignore some of the Winter grime it has collected since. The hard top looks just as nice but it has a satin finish.

I have a pair of the old timey garden metal chairs out in my back yard. They were red with white pipe type framing. I hit them real quick with paint thinner then a quick sanding. Next two coats of green for the body and white for the tubular frame. They have been out in my yard for five years exposed to the sun and they look like they were done last week. And they just sit out there uncovered year round.

If you are looking for an inexpensive, good looking paint job, and you have a little bit of patience you will be real happy with the results.

I did not get too nutty with fit/finish but I did have a nice YJ to start with.

I did not thin the paint 50/50 (more like 60/40) because I did not want to do more than three or possibly four coats....getting old and well I'm getting old......


I need to do some repair to the body where the factory step was bolted on. That will be a piece of cake to do for me because of this paint technique.

Roll away!
