Spraying the color. Its called fathom green metallic. It looks almost OD green in the shade but super metallic in the sun. Almost like a rescue green color. [IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]
Will post more pics after i get cage in/ trim on. After that will do some color sanding. Over all im pretty happy with it and love the color.

Nice start!

I like the color on the cage.

It is close to the powder coat on the chasis in my dragster.

I will be watching for updates.

You must be good freinds with your neighbors as when I painted a car in my garage they turned me in and I got a citation

The green looks sweet

I looked at your location and the CJ sitting in the front yard where it is obvious you primed it outside. I am surprised you didn't get hauled to jail

Thanks! Again, I have easy going neighbors. Yeah, i primed it ouside because my cage was in my "booth" drying still from color. I painted it under a tarp with walls/ fence on 4 sides- still illegal but more inconspicuous.....
