What a difference some paint makes...

Spent the morning wire wheeling, sanding and painting my frame, wheel wells and bumper (I'd already reconditioned the rims and got new tires). It's pretty amazing the difference.

Looks like you got great results from your hard work! Do us all a favor and fill out your profile. That way we'll know what we're looking at as you keep improving your Jeep.

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

It's like Forest Gump's magic shoes!

Actually, I didn't have a wheel on pic of that hub, so I improvised. Here's an actual pic of the hub after I masked a bit, but before painting.
