So, I am going to purchase my paint, sealer, clear, etc this week to get Project 23 nice and shiney and to bring it back to life. I am going with Sherwin Williams as there is a store front within 15 minutes of my house and I have a friend that works for the company so a nice discount will be had
The question is, should I go with the original silver or go with something a tad bit darker? My overall plan is to get the blue Rengade decal package for it since I believe it has the Renegade package. Now, I'm no way near a puriest when dealing with Project 23, but I want to make it look close to original.
So with that, what are your thoughts? I know in the end its my decision, but I wanted to get your input........
Yep, getting one gallon of paint, sealer and clear. I will not be painting the interior as that is lined with Monstaliner (which will be covered with carpet). Since I'm on the topic of bedliner, I need to remove some which is on the door jam. Anybody have some input on removing this stuff?
If you are going with the blue decal package. I think the lighter silver looks better in my opinion. not my jeep but here is one like what you are talking about.
Told my girl I just had to forget her, Rather buy me a new cartburettor,
So she made tracks sayin' ths is the end now, Cars don't talk back they're just four wheeled friends now
I disagree, but you seem to have missed the point, anyway.
My point is the factory *color* can be provided in SS and BC/CC, and BC/CC is more forgiving, easier to make corrections and not signficantly more expensive. Since 1982 I have painted with Dupont Centari SS, Dupont Imron SS, Nason SS, TPC Global SS and Dupont DBC BC/CC. I am not an expert but I have some experience with several brands and both types of paint.
What is your point?
1978 Cherokee, 360/T400/QT...5.3/4L60E/NP241C in the works...
Gents, please step back and count to 10. Getting worked up over what type of paint I'm using isn't worth getting worked up about. I simply asked what shade of silver I should go with.
There are pros and cons to SS and BC paints. Arguments will continue, but it comes down to a personal preference.
So let's take a step back because this is the small **** in life that doesn't matter. Lord knows we need more things in life to worry about.
Better yet, I want you guys to go sit on the steps for 5 minutes. Yes, I just put you in cyber time out!!!
Whelp, I have another update regarding Project 23's paint job. The wifey pooh has been doing research on the overall painting process and she is not a happy camper. To make a long story short, she doesn't want me exposed to paint fumes even if I have a respirator and ventilation. There is no half azzing a make shift spray booth using box fans to get the air flowing.
So with this we are going to fund a paint job which will max out at $1500. So with that I have scheduled to meet with the owner of a shop about 5 minutes from my house. I have met with him in the past to get a quote, but I want to make sure I know what I'm getting for the money. I also want to see what kind of prep work I can do to keep the cost down.
So with that being said, I guess that my trip to the paint shop will not be happening.
