Thanks again everyone. I think I'm going to go the rattle can route as I don't feel like buying a spray gun & my little air compressor would probably die trying to do the whole thing.

Wish me luck.

That's kinda dangerous. I'd ask Al Sharpton first. Jesse Jackson at the VERY least.

Va Beach boardwalk.. gotta love it. Just moved from the beach to NM (Air Force).

Looks great though. What kind of prep work did you put into it? I'm trying to repaint my red TJ and it looks like you have it all figured out

paint question...

No post-paint buffing or anything. It's not exactly rocket science, and it's a lot of fun. I used Duplicolor 'Hot Rod Black' paint.

I realize that these were posted many years ago, but in case anyone here might read this and happens to know......

I am getting ready to rattle-can my car and lawdogg's looks great!! Would the Hot Rod black he used be the "sandable primer"? That is the only thing that is coming up in a search of Dupli-Color products....just want to make sure I'm looking at the right thing.

Thanks a bunch!!!!
