I love it man!! Do you think we can have a couple close up shots to see how it turned out. Did you use any clear coat? Why did you use Engine enamel instead of Auto body paint? No primer?

It's super cheap and more so just a picture request, can anyone show a picture of a TJ running fender flareless, preferably with 33"s?

Thanx, yea ill take closer pix tomoro. I didnt use any clear coat, the first 8 cans i did light coats, i actually had my dad do the last coat, and he went heavier which gave it the shine. I used the engine enamel because I used it on my wheel spacers, i didnt sand them or do any prep, I just wiped them off and painted, THAT PAINT IS STRONG!! I went up to my spacer the other day and started scratching at it to see if it would chip, nothing, no marks or anything, also I couldnt find the same color in another brand like rustoleum or krylon, and advance auto had it on sale 2 for 10, which was a plus lol, i didnt use any primer, just sanded the original paint. In about a week ill put a coat of wax on it
