Lucky. Here in mass the legal system requires flares wide enough to cover tires, mirrors, front license plate, 2"max lift for tj's, and the list goes on

Rustoleum camo spray paint from home depot.

I painted all the wheel wells as well with rubber spray paint from pep boys I think it's called under coat.

For all of u with faded herc liner. Do yourself a favor go to home depot buy black garage floor paint and touch up your flooring. Mine came out a gloss black and it seems stronger

That's a clean looking paint job. How many cans to do all of it?

It took 6 cans of tan, two to three cans of black, 1 can on primer, two cans of rubber spray paint , two cans of truck bed liner spray paint and one quart of bondo 32 rivets, 110 curse words 12 beers, a bunch of stencil work, 9 hours of my time, 30 min yelling at the dumb code enforcement officer and that's about it. it's really easy. Flat spray paint sprays perfect Only lasts a year or so. Next time I will be using a special type of paint that the military uses without the lead in it

Looks great! You did one hell of a job!

3M makes the rubberized undercoat spray and it's available just about everywhere (even Wal-Mart) Make sure, whoever does this, you clean and scratch the surface this is going on (like wheel wells, for example.)

Actually that rubber spray paint sticks to anything very good. All I did was clean the areas with paint remover.



Thanks too bad I have a cracked block now and I can't drive her anymore till I have time and cash to rebuild her


It took about a full 8 hour day with no breaks to do it. Minus the detail work painting the decals on. That takes time!!!!!!


But if anyone is close to south fl I'll do it for free just buy the paint and help me we should be able to knock it out in half the time.

Seriously, do that to any other vehicle out there and it would never look as good as it does on a Jeep!

Nicely done!

Looks good. Does it spray evenly all over? I know most times spray paint has splotches all over but of course that is probably user error. You say it would only last a year, but I wonder if it would last longer if I got a diamond gloss or something from ziebart. My tj is all scratched to pieces and I'm not a big fan of the blue color anyways and I want it repainted. but unfortunately I don't wanna spend 2000 for a paint job on a vehicle with 142k miles and paid off. lol. Let me know if you think the clear coat would make it last longer.

thi is what you want to do man..

Army Jeep Parts Inc., O.D. Paint, Gillespie Coatings Inc. manufactured.

buy there spray can paint....i did my friends jeep a few years ago. no sign of wear yet. the paint this company offers is outstanding it does not get cloudy or ever start fading. great product just a lil more cash.



however i love changing my paint up on my jeep so i dont mind once a year re painting mine it only takes about 8 hours or so.

the paint i like to use is anything flat camo. rustoleum or krylon
they are both good

flat camo colors always spray even unlike gloss or semi spray paints its kinda like spraying primer. have you ever sprayed a primer that blotched?????? nope i didnt think so. also flat camo colors are very easily touched up.. for example say you have a 6 month old flat camo spray paint job and then you get a nasty scratch just bust out your spray paint and paint it. you may have to wet sound the new spray painted area to blend it with the old paint but it will look perfect i promise....


if anyone lives close to south fl and does not want to do this themselves ill be happy to help.
