What about Overton trails? Rocky gap likely is, even from the pahrump side. Joker's right, this sucks!
A guy on Cherokeeforum confirmed potato is closed.

Painting is like everything else, you get what you pay for. I would say painting is maybe 80% prep and 20% of actual painting. With that said, any work that is not done on top of good prep has the possibility of turning out crappy. Therefor any reputable shop will not paint it. esp because if stuff goes bad, their name will be on it.

Like others have said with such an old car there are tons of things that could be wrong under the surface, which inturn is your major issue. Just get Khris to plasti-dip it and call it a day.

When I was about 8 y/o and still is to this day... (except the knee injuries, grounded when I got arrested shoplifting in my early teens, and ummmm yeah, that's my only two complaint memories... Oh and I had a mental break down somewhere in my sr. college year thinking I was done for. LOL)

My pm box is empty now!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!
