A friend of mine came to me two weeks ago and wanted a jeep for his son for Christmas and I had this laying around, $10 CL find. Sold for $100. Just finished tonight. No lights, just paint.

Thank you! Yeah, I really like that stuff. It's great for tire tread also. I did it to keep from messing up the paint every time they get in and out.

I also really like what you did with the roll bar. Just bent it down lower and removed the supports?

Correct. It actually happened by accident the first time! I was trying to remove the bar from the parts jeep and it bent down like that and I liked the look of it :P I never did get that bar out of the parts jeep :?

Looks great! What steps to you take to prepare the Jeep for paint? Also what kind of primer, paint, etc. do you use?

Thanks.

Thanks.
Paint on this one is Rustoleum Plastic Primer, Rustoleum Yellow Enamel and Rustoleum Crystal clear Enamel. The airbrush paint is called AutoAir. I clean it and do any Bondo work first and then sand the whole thing down with 400 grit sandpaper. Then clean again and wipe down with alcohol then wipe down with a tack rag and lay primer, then color and finally clear making sure to follow re coat times and limitations. Wet sand with 600 grit and Airbrush work is done over the clear then another coat or two of clear to finish it off.
