Mike, I have one of the Mopar AMC Jeep badges and it's pretty good. Mounting tape on it has held great. Pic did not come out very well but looks just like yours.

I kind of like the idea of the old badge showing a little history, but at the same time I think it would be out of place compared to the rest of your build IMO.

Thanks, as long as I don't screw up the install.

Thanks Paul. I think I'll pick one of those up for the $20. It looks good. I like the white on your CJ, do you know what specific color that is? I thought I was looking at my Jeep for a second.

Thanks. My compressor is a Craftsman 6.5HP, 60 gallon, 240v, 15 scfm @40psi, 11.5 scfm @90 psi. I bought it about the same time as my tire changing machine in the summer of 2000. I picked it up from a guy I barely knew who was going through a divorce. He was dumping everything he had for cash. Just the tank was going for $700 back then, I paid him $350 for it with a hose, regulator and water separator. It was only 5 months old, he had the receipt, and I could tell he had never used it. It actually just fell in my lap right at the perfect time back then.

It is a bit loud and you should really add a 1/4 turn drain valve to the bottom to get the water out. As far as performance is concerned it is a nice really nice compressor, it's just noisy. Mine has powered that tire machine through literally hundreds of motorcycle tire changes. It also made it through the Jeep and a bunch of motorcycle painting. I'd have to say I've been happy with my half priced Craftsman.

I agree, I'll buy a replacement for the back of the Jeep. I can either hide the original away with the title or I can put it in the glove box or on the inside of the glove box door. That might be a good extra touch at car shows.

Mine is on the opposite side of the spectrum compared to your paint job! That is about 8 coats of Rustoleum rolled on.

All hail Rustoleum!... My main source of new looking (temporarily) shiny surfaces, too. I have even been thinking in doing my grill, fenders, bumpers and hood with too. I'll never be able to pull off what Mike has done.

Oh... I am searching for something to say!! I wish I lived close to you Mike so I could say, "Yeah... I know him. He's one of my friends!" The pin stripes add so much. Way to go Graffxman!!!

I can quit biting my nails now. Those decals look like they fit perfect. Easy to do when I get specs as detailed as Coiz sent. Very clear instructions from him, down to the 16th inch. Can't wait to see them complete.

That sounds like what I had basically planned for mine. I was either going to razor blade or use fine sand paper to remove the paint from the raised parts of the letters. It looks like that's what the factory did.

The nerf bars were on it when I bought it. When I originally started the restore it wasn't planned to be a full frame off so it never really occurred to me that I could/should cut them off and go with something different. I've never really minded the nerf bars but in hind sight I guess I could have at least considered and looked into something different. I do know something like Jim's set up would have been pretty cool. I can always pull out the cutoff wheel and another can of POR.

I had always pictured the 5.0 HO centered with the Jeep stamp in my head. It looks like I have enough decal to move it quite a bit in either direction. I might play with it to see what it would look like.

Well, it's bright and looks good in pictures. I'll bet it's a whole lot easier to touch up than mine if/when it gets scratched.

Anyone can do what I did, they just need a lot of time, patients, money and fast growing hair so you don't run out of something to pull out of your head when you end up having to repaint pieces multiple times. Besides, your beast is on a whole other level of fabrication.

Graffxman was super nice and really easy to work with, definitely recommended.

Me too. Makes me want to fire up the heater in the garage just so I can put them on. I'm thinking my little bullet heater would take too much propane to get me where I need it to be.

There was no doubt they were going to turn out great. Thanks again.

Hey Mike I've got an idea on your garage not being warm enough to allow you to put the pinstrpies on!! My shop is heated and you can bring it here, of course it'll need to sit for a while to get warmed up. Maybe 10 years or so. Anyway you are sure welcome to bring it here and do all the work you want. I'll even take pictures for you! You never knew you had such good friends did you?
