Here are a few other things

A custom sub box for behind the back seat. Its made of 3/4 plywood I had laying around and then I had a cover plate made out of 1/8 aluminum on our cnc router at work. Painted her all up to look nice. I installed a 8" kicker solo baric ($89 on ebay) which is all I had to pay for. I had a amp laying in my closet so I hooked that up and it sounds great. Doesn't take up to much room and I can still fit a case of beer in the back If I push everything out of the way.

My Jeep trailer although not that cheap ($300 and ALOT of scrap) is all aluminum. Its light weight and pulls great behind the jeep. Has an ax on one side and shovel on the other with custom mounts. Its 4'2"x8'2" on the inside so it hauls plywood almost perfect. Used my stock Jeep wheels and tires that came on the jeep. Could have been cheaper but everything was bought new except the wheels and scrap.

If you can't already tell I like working with aluminum. LOL

Look great I might try that out of some MDF board the fiberglass it.

Pulled the trigger

I finally pulled the trigger on bed lining some stuff.

Bought the jeep right before the summer and began making it mine right away but once the weather got too nice(aka too hot to work outside) and life started getting in the way (getting married in 19 days and in the process of buying a house). Today me and my fiancee(she actually did almost all the spraying) bed lined some things. We did the worn out old rear fender flares, the gas filler tube area, cap, head light bezels, door handles and mirrors. The mirrors Im letting dry very well before I put them back together and on so better pics of everything together will be up tomorrow prolly.

Old faded, ready for spray.


Just done


Other side










I got some good stuff planned for the next month or so, hopefully they work out well. Tomorrow Im gonna get rid of the stock stickers.

Oh yeah and this bad boy will set me back a lil cash. The front set is almost shot any way but really! Who picks up 12mm bolts.


Im very happy with the way the bed liner came out but it makes it painfully obvious how many scratches I have put on this beast this summer. :-(

RustOleum.com like this but black. I got mine at lowes for right around 8 bucks per can. I used 1 can on everything but the mirrors. I had to open the second to do those. I did 2 coats on everything.

It says textured but its not like thick or bumpy like some of the others. I didnt want it like that.

Looks awesome! I think I'm doing my mirrors next. I really like the texture too. Almost like the stock flare texture, but a little rougher. Hell, I'm just gonna start unbolting stuff and spraying it with the Rustoleum.

Thanks man, and yeah I wanted to do the same thing. My woman was making fun of me because of all the stuff I wanted to spray. I really thought about doing my whole doors because of how scratched they are but she thought it would look dumb with black doors and green jeep. After I get a black top I may go for it.

I am thinking about the doors too. I saw a picture of one like that on full doors. Looked kind of cool.

I like the arrows on the turn lights too.

Bedlined my hinges. Not too happy though. Duplicolor liner was harder to use than the rustoleum. Love the texture more though. Hard to get clean lines and used "frog" tape. NEVER AGAIN! Only blue painters tape for me! This stuff would probably look cool on the grill. Not sure yet if I'm gonna take that plunge. Also redid my mirror stalks

Why good luck cleaning? My bed lined wheels are easy to clean. I just use a scrub brush and done. Not so sure about the duplicolor though. Seems more rubbery

I used frog tape during my project and it worked fine. I didnt have any challenging lines to deal with but I didnt see any problems. I guess the door handles would be the hardest area as far as tape is concerned and I didnt have any trouble...but I didnt exactly notice anything much better about it either.

I use the scotch blue painters tape. But the fully green version. It's a little better adhesion with no problems peeling off. And will stick to anything. Paint plastic Berliner. Easy to work with. Love it. Won't buy another kind again

The tape stuck so hard it pulled off some of my red paint and left adhesive behind and it was only on for 3hrs. Maybe it was defective. Never had problems like this before

Oh, I didnt leave my tape on for any where near 3 hours. I dont think any tape was even on for 30 minutes. If you left it on in the blazzing heat or direct sunlight for that long it will def do that to ya.

I have used both on my Jeep and I prefer the rustoleum over the duplicolor bedliner. I think the duplicolor goes on thicker but I like the looks of the rustoleum much better, and its easier to use imho.
