Thanks, I'm debating whether to redo the sides of it or not. The metallic is showing pretty bad on the doors and rear quarters on both sides. Once I see it in the sun tomorrow I'll know if I need to redo it or not.

Good thing is the everything else came out immaculate, or course the areas you don't really see. It's definitely not bad for a diy paint job though.

Here's what I'm talking about, hopefully it don't look too bad in the sun. If it's not horrible I'm just gonna leave it alone, keep telling my self it's just a jeep not going to be perfect.

Looks great, way better than I could do lol. Hopefully it works out and you don't have to do anything over again. Nice colour too

Well...in the last 10 feet of stopping my brake peddle has a vibration! I've changed pads and rotors, bled the brakes and still no change...? My jeep stops just fine but vibration seems to just be in the peddle...I know that sounds weird...but I'm clueless?

Installed my new Hella driving lights, then adjusted them and took it for a ride in the dark. They're perfect for Maine roads at night. Really help out the high beams.

I have about $300 if that into a gallon of base and clear. I have enough left over to paint the thing 2 more times.

I do love the color though, the base has an insane amount of metallic in it. Not a bad job for two 18 year old kids working on it.

Have you done the rear brakes?
ABS or no?

Yes, they are. XJ leafs are perfect for the back of a TJ. Simple to set up compared to a 4 link .

Cut out more rust and welded in more patch panels. I think I'm wrapped up with the welding though!

Gotta love the rust belt.
