I am just one more person in along line of people who decided to paint their vehicle in this manner. There is no way one can get as good a paint job for such little money/time/expertise (I had NONE!).
I have received a bunch of comments on it and when I tell them how I painted it they can't believe it.
I will need to address some rust just starting to come through where the flair extensions and step were. I also have the typical small area of rust starting to show under the taillights at the bottom of the body area. I didn't touch under/behind any body panels initially. I figured that I'll get back to it soon.......which I have not done yet...
The hard top was in good shape but a bit faded. One coat of Rustoleum and it looks new.
There are other brands of paint that are as good if not better, that may offer more color choices. Needless to say preparation is the key. The painting part is the easiest part.
Some people have taken this method to the nth degree and boy does it show! More thin coats = a better finish. I did 'cheat' a bit during the thinning process and my YJ looks just fine to me.
Go for it!
