Good luck with your build. It's hard to believe that my Jeep basically started out looking like exactly like yours. I have a sport as well. I got lucky with the D44 out back, but the color was the same.thanks! im actually surprised how many people have bothered posting in here already :laugh:
i just remembered, i also repainted my chipping passenger side mirror (the driver side is fine, since i replaced it after a ****ing semi took it off while i was parked on the street. he left the scraps in the road, no note, yet his destination was 2 doors down from my house. my dad and i walked over and saw the mark on the side of his truck. but of course we had no 'proof') anyway, i can take an after pic, but no before. im sure you all know what the before looks like anyway, thanks to your own mirrors.
i'll take the pic and post it once i get new batteries for my camera. i just used leftover krylon fusion from my flares
About your "brush" with the truck... Same thing happened to me in my mustang a few years back. I traced the truck's route to the driver, who denied everything of course! So I took photos, & went to the distribution center & showed the pics & damage to the car to the supervisor. I also lied a bit & said that I saw the whole thing. They repaired it, but the driver confronted me a few weeks later & threatened me. I guess he got in trouble? :hahaha:
By the way, thanks for those kind words on my thread. I'd like to know what other Jeeps are in your "legendary list" though...
