Done by one broke redneck with rustoleum and rattle cans, and a ridiculous amount of time and sandpaper!

Before




After-- Very "personalized" because I'm taking away the temptation of ever selling it to someone else!

Cool, I'll be rolling my xj in black soon. I guess they have a clear coat too. Will add that for durability

I really like that on the hood. I have these grayish fading spots on the top of my hood and have been thinking of what to do about it. I think I may have found the answer!

Here is my spray can paint job. Found a website that would match the factory amber fire paint, bought 5 cans.
Really took my time sanding, priming, sanding. Applied the basecoat in 2 coats over two days and then spray paint
clearcoat in 2 coats.
It's far from good, but good from far.
