That Jeep does look better in the green!
BTW, how'd you do this?...



That skull is AWESOME!!! Do you have a stencil or is it airbrushed?

It's a stencil I made based on a pic I saw on the net somewhere.

Damn, this looks awesome. I really want to do mine, but in desert sand with black markings. I just don't think I'd have enough time to do it, since its my DD. =\

Hows the paint holding up, anyways? Any nasty chips or areas you've had to touch up?

Thanks! I think desert would look great!

Well, to date no chips or flakes coming off. I was amazed at how resilient it really is. I've scratched it in a few places but never all the way though. That rustoleum stuff is top notch. I think the California sun beating down on it cured it quite well.

I've changed a few things. I painted over the "hokey" "Kill my spotter" stencil and painted over the skull on the tailgate. It just didn't look all that great to me. I guess it was a good idea at the time...

There is some jeeps produced as military vehicles but NOT USED BY THE US MIL. They are exported to other countries. Mainly Egypt.

ccain, I know this is an old thread but I have a quick question(rather two questions) for you. I painted one of my panel (hood) flat black. Now after one muddy ride at Hollister the damm dirt seems to stick onto the paint real good. It's requiring me to scrub a lot just to get the dirt off.
#1 Q: Is flat black or flat OD bad idea?
#2 Q: When you sanded, what grit sand paper did you use? and is it ok to paint on the old paint?

Couple of good points. Yeah, I chose the semi-gloss over flat for that very reason. The mud doesn't stick to it and washes right off like any other paint job. Flat is gonna do the same thing those plastic fender flares do. The mud gets into the crevasses in the flat paint and is almost impossible to get out.

I started with 220 and ended with 320 and I used a scuff pad to get back into the tight spots. Remember, you're not trying to remove the old paint, you're just trying scuff the existing paint to get the new paint to stick.

Being that you painted it flat black is the main issue. If you painted it a satin or semi-gloss it would be much easier to clean, and the main reason cars come with a clear gloss coat over the paint. Super smooth and easiest to clean.

Ok, this makes sense, it is alot of work to get all the old paint off anyway.

Pardon my ignorance, are you advising that I scrub with 220-320 grit and then primer and then paint? I was thinking of skipping the primer altogether...the primer will stick on to existing scrubbed paint/primer-from-factory anyway. Let me know what you think...

Scrubbing with sand paper and then painting is good enough. Primer is just one more good investment as far as I'm concerned when painting. Prep work (sanding) is the start to any paint job and primer (base coat) is the basis to which paint adheres best to any surface. Using something like Rust-Oleum that says it's great for metal is nice, but using a good primer help it all stick. That's what primer is for, it's an "adhesive".

Ok, this is the color I chose,
COLOR: 1919830 - Deep Forest Green RustOleum.com

It said camo, so I tried another surface but this one is flat as well...

Camo would be your clue here. Any thing camoflage is gonna have a flat finish. If you read the labels on the cans they will tell you if it is flat, semi flat, satin or gloss finish. If you are doing black, and want as close to flat finish as you can, then I highly recommend Krylon semi-flat black, it is a great finish, flatter than satin, but more sealed than flat.... if that makes sense.

Or you can just go over the top with a clear semi-gloss.
