That's rattle canned!!?? I've been checking your jeep out in your posts. I've always liked the matte black paint jobs. What kind did you use that has held up with no fade? And how in the hell did you manage to not tiger stripe it? That looks awesome.
Off the shelf Krylon. Its actually more durable than the factory paint ever was. No fade, though I clean it regularly and keep it garaged and out of the sun as much as I can. I just took my time - lots of light coats. Its not perfect - but from 3ft away it blows peoples minds when I tell them its just spray paint. Sure as hell beats dropping a few grand on a paintjob that will be chipped and pinstriped in no time.
I think the biggest reason it turned out well was because the jeep was black to begin with. I didnt have to struggle with color showing through or having to disassemble anything major (windsheild & hinges) to get the nooks and crannies. Just roughed up the clearcoat till there was no shiny spots anymore, washed it, wiped it down with rubbing alchohol, painted panel by panel, no primer.

Literally minutes after I finished. 100 degree day, 90% humidity, paint was still wet and very tacky, nothing was bolted down all the way - I just wanted to see the highline kit installed outside of the garage

Minus the doors, they're plastic but luckily match the paint color really well.
One day... maybe:
I will either paint it myself or have it professionally done in a "Garbage Can Grey" like this AEV Jeep, that or whatever color the Nukizer is.
