Inappropriatus - Patina or New Paint?

Hi All...

If you check out my 2 pics you will see that the 96 CJ was originally AMC Sterling Silver. After 40 plus years it is quite faded and has all the earmarks of that 40 years of use. The body and frame are in pretty good shape with only very minor rust and one or two dings to the metal and the interior is basically the same as well. I am going to do a tuff-textured coating on the interior, but I am wondering about the exterior. A new sterling silver paint job with crinkle dry black hardware (including the roll bar) would look great.

Any comments about keeping the patina?

Your opinion would be appreciated.

No pictures are attached and I think you meant 86 CJ7.

Which do you you prefer for my 1946?

The neglected poopy lazy look?

or the

Proud look he might have exhibited when he was really young?

Just a hint, the whole neighborhood laughed when I brought him home on a trailer in 1991 after the $100 cornfield rescue.

Sometimes it's hard just to get out and drive him for everyone wanting to tell their story, at a destination, sometimes they try when in traffic---I don't mind the female attention!

I do mine as well......and a little mud on the tires too
Is that clear coat you have on there? Mine is still original, and thinking of fixing only the cancer spots, then clear coat to seal it as is.
The rest of the truck is pretty solid.

To each thier own but if you're going to clear patina please use a satin clear. The "shiny rust" is just ironic and makes me feel bipolar and ADD...

Patina, cool.... shiny stuff!? Wait, patina, cool... ooh shiny stuff!?

My Falcon is patina and satin clear, my CJ is all original oxidation and I liked it 5 yrs ago. Just too much now, it'll get fresh paint in the next year. Both are a "Robin's egg blue"

Patina has it's place when done right, and it's only OG once,
but I don't like the shiny rust look ether. and the fauxtina look is just bad IMHO.

Mines not a CJ but the clear coat failed on my YJ, and don't
care for that look at all, So, Mine got a respray and I love it
but am not afraid to get her dirty.
It just depends on the look you're going for.

It's not patina, it's urban camouflage.
So it should be flat finish.

I was thinking about painting on some rust spots on my fiberglass tub but couldn't make it look realistic.
(yes, I watched the YouTube videos for faux rust...)

Personally, I've never been a fan of the whole patina fad. It just looks like a neglected vehicle to me.

Fake patina is bad, real patina from a lifetime of work is good.



Either way, please do not 'tuff-texture coat the interior. That is the worst and any repairs are now twice as difficult. Anything that I see with a texture finish I relate to a cheap rust cover up job and pass right by. I can vouch for this as I rhino lined the interior of a Wagoneer 20 years ago as a cheap way for cover up rust and the patch panels that I had screwed over the rust holes to keep the outside out.

ditto on the interior.

Exterior patina only looks good if it is real sun faded paint, ordinary rot is just not attractive.

I compare it to a fine old wine or a lady of mature years, rather than a rotten cork or old hag.

Yep, there is a true difference between neglect and character. Patina is what we humans are fresh out of the shower. Every little scar, nook and cranny, imperfection showing. A road map on our bodies of the life we have lived through. Put the clothes on, makeup (for those who wear it) and bling......looks nice, but still the same foundation underneath.
Same with our rigs, and everybody loves theirs differently.
Kudos to you all as underneath these are our Jeeps, and saving one no matter the condition, model, color, age, is a good thing

Depends on how you use it. If you're going to have fun beating it up offroad, don't worry too much about cosmetics. Just keep functional integrity.

Fake aging is exactly that: fake. There's a guy I see at local shows with a 47 Buick. It's got a bit of light surface rust and dull paint, but looks solid and really looks like it belongs.
