Exactly what I'm doing once it gets warm out! I'm gonna do the under coating of the body everywhere too

Great Job, how many coats did you use?

Used 1 coat on the underbody, 2 coats on both the rims and bumper. Rolling and brushing with rust-olean paint(underbody) gets nasty quick. Definetely use gloves. On the rims and bumper I used the rust-olean spray.

No..checked the bucket and spray can and didn't see any impact rating. Rust-OLEUM(been misspelling it) help to protect againt rust but also is very durable.

Sanded all my fenders and will be re-painting them with textured black by Rust-oleum



Also replaced my drivers seat which was rusted and busted with a new Bestop. The lady we bought it from was a marine biologist and she would sit in the chair wet with salt water. The screws bolted from the rail to seat had become rusted so badly it was one piece of metal. So i had to get under the car and remove the entire rack and seat from the jeep. But seeing that the screws were in such bad shape... i had to grind them off. buuuuut after all that work i am sitting high and fly lol. pic below:

What kind of prep did you do to the suspension parts before paint? I'd like to do this to my 94, as everything down there has turned a nice brown shade.

I soaked everything with degreaser and I let it sit like that for awhile. Then I gave it a pressure wash in the wheel wells, springs, underbody, etc.

The black comes in both spray can and gallon bucket. I didn't want to paint the rims with a brush because ofthe lines it leaves, so I got the spray can.

Next time this will work best on your fenders, you can use a heat gun or a blow torch.
