I saw this same thread from the site you are referring to. There is some great tips in that thread. There is some guy that chimes in pretty far down the thread that has some great insight. I wish I remembered what site it is. It's well worth the read.

Not to knock the OP of this thread but the other thread from the other site goes into further detail [and criticisms] that this thread doesn't touch on and can be quite helpful.

I plan to do a RO paint job this summer. My jeep is really starting to look bad with all the age, scratches, and dents.

No offense taken! I did not go into great detail because it wasn't a very technical undertaking. My YJ needed to be repainted. I didn't want to spend a ton of money on it, BUT I wanted a decent looking YJ when I was done. I could not spray it because of my physical limitations.

My goal was a decent paint job. I figure the equipment I used would be important. I did touch upon how I went about it. The level of prep work one wants to impart on his/he paint job will depend on the original condition of their Jeep and what they expect it should look like when finished.

I still need to fix the lower tub section where the original flares/step was. I still haven't wet sanded the finished paint figuring that will get done after fixing the lower tub....IF and when I get around to it! Us retired guys are busy folks!!!

Just wanted to also share my experience with this roll on method. I was looking for something, easy, cheap, fun to do by myself, and not worried about the paint. I can scratch it, dent it, slide into a tree, and not be all uptight about it. I can re roll it if I want to in a few years should I need to. I used a Sherwin William acrylic enamel paint. I did about 10 coats. About 6 coats in I found it was coming out way to purple so I changed the color and added more green to the formula. I probably could have done about 6-7 coats total but I didn't want to cut it short. I did not end up wet sanding between coats as I thought I was going to. It came out with a textured look that I really liked so that is why I did not wet sand. I protected it with a cheap turtle carnuba wax and it looks great...seems to hold up well too.

Below are a few pictures. Here is a link to all the pictures I took of the project from purchase to roll on paint job, bed liner and winch install.

When I purchased:



Tested the color on the door and started prepping:



Got it out into natural light and it is confirmed, I don't like how much purple:



Did a few more coats and here is a close up:



Monst-lined the bed, mounted winch and some d-ring on front/rear bumper:

Rustoleum protective enamel. Color says gloss royal blue but it came out much lighter, which is a very good thing :-)

Ah so that's what Rustoleum's Royal Blue looks like. I was thinking about going in this direction. Thanks man! Looks good!

Both of your YJ's look great!

For the YJ owner that wants his rig to be one color again you cannot beat this rolled on paint job technique unless you are set up to spray BUT a ROPJ is way easier....Heck I did it, so it has got to be easy....

And you can get as fine a finish as you want by wet sanding in between coats using the 50/50 mix and making sure you area is dust free.

I am also planning to do this on my 91 YJ; however progress is very slow because I have two little girls at home, but if I ever get moving I will post up some pictures. I am using Interlux Brightside which is a top side marine paint. The reason I am using this instead of rustoleum is that it is UV stable. Many of the Rusto jobs I have found fade somewhat after a few years. The Brightside does not. The paint is a little bit more expensive, but I think it's probably worth it. I plan to do 8-10 thin coats, sanding down the orange peel every other coat. Although, I have to say ZJ1998's Jeep turned out really nice with the textured look. I want to challenge myself to get the most "normal" looking paint job that I can.

$46 per quart is pretty pricy, but if it goes on just as easy and holds up, I suppose that's still pretty darn cheap. Have you found anywhere that sells it where you could go see paint chips? They have a lot of awesome color names.
