Winter Camo Cherokee

I always wanted some type of camo jeep, and I felt winter camo looks amazing. It took me about 10 spray cans of white, a black, grey, and blue can. I sanded down only the the spots where the original paint was bad, which was basically just the hood, roof, and tailgate. I put 2-3 coats of white on to cover the original green. For the patterns, I originally tried to outline them with tape but tiny bits of overspray with make any outline noticable. I ended up just spraying those on too. Looking back, I would have hand painted the patterns. Lastly, I sprayed a bottle of clear coat over each side of the vehicle to seal it.

I understand that the paint job is far from perfect and definitely looks like a rattle can job cause it is.. It's my beater/learning project jeep. It's also the first vehicle ever completely in my name so I'm proud of it! The best part is I dont have to worry about people judging my horribly twangy country music cause they are too busy judging the exterior

Here's some photos of the progress and finished result! Let me know what you think.

Letís see the playlist of twangy country music before rushing to judgement.
Congrats on your first vehicle though.
Mine was a 71 Coronet that would have definitely looked better with that paint job. But I had shiniest mag wheels around.

I'm listening to Chris Ledoux, older Gary Allen, Eric Church, Turnpike Troubadours, and a few others!

You cant beat a solid set of shiney wheels. I'd love to get a shine back in mine.

Good list.
I had the exact same wheels, Purple Power, scrub brush, and rubber gloves. Spray down, scrub, immediately rinse, wonít take long at all, just donít let the PP set.
