slapped a first coat of paint on it

Only a few more to go then I will mount her up on the jeep. Im thinking about cleaning up my fairlead a bit to. Its really oxidized and thinking of sanding the base down and painting it a silver color. Then clean up the rollers real good and put it on.

Ok well I decided to paint my ugly oxidized fairlead. I think it turned out really well. I used Hammered Silver.


It was about 11:30pm on Sunday night and I couldnt sleep so I snuck out into the garage and assembled the fairlead and bolted it all back together. here is the finished product, hard to see being a black jeep with black bumper. Maybe when its light I will pull it outside and grab a pic and post it up.


Now its back to Home Improvement projects before I get back to building the rear swing-out tire carrier. Gotta keep wifey happy
