Getting a little liberal with the spray paint...

Saw this awesome FLUORESCENT green paint at walmart, and picked it up. My jeep is mostly white and black, so I wanted a little bit of spice to it...

Did the tow hooks first...


Then I wanted to do the differential cover.


Now all I want are lime green shock boots. They sell em around here...just don't wanna go through the hassle of putting them on.

Hah I'm loving that lime green. My TJ needs more color underneath, everything is black with the exception the yellow OME shocks and blue track bar brace. Lime green... hmmm. I think that would clash real nicely with those other two colors, I think I'll do it next time I need to paint something down there.

How warm does the differential cover get? Like potentially under extreme conditions could it ever get hot enough to mess with the paint?

There is a member in Washington that has done similar with the same color. If you or he has said this is what I want to do. I would have thought ewwww BUT I have to say I really like the accent of the bright green.

The lime green was really cool when I put it on the hooks, and I saw a lot of red and white differential covers at Adam's Jeep Jam yesterday, but no green ones. Here's a picture of the can, it's Krylon "Special Purpose" Florescent.



Just watch the can top, the top is Forest Green so make sure you give it a test spray before you get an ugly TREE COLORED differential!

I've always felt that lime green would go great with my black TJ, just didn't know for sure where to put it. Thought about the fender flares but not sure. I think I'll start with the dash piece around the stereo first.

I'd do something on the outside first, like tow hooks or a diff cover like this, and just stand back and look. That way if it doesn't look good you can just repaint it, and it won't show as bad, whereas the inside might look bad and repainting it would really stand out.

I used to see an old (early 70's, I think) FJ, the whole thing was painted that color. His plate was Mr Yuk

If I ever do anything I would do it orange, but not like safety cone. like sexy orange. but I just did my diff black and white so too late for that. I can always redo it though.

I might have to pick up a can of enamel and start spraying a few things on my truck. I don't really want Odd colors though, I'll stick with black for now.

I should've gotten some pics of that. All I honestly did was shove some newspaper and magazines up there and stuck em where they stuck, no tape or anything. Just made sure to give a shield around it and all. Then sprayed away. I did put a roll over the tie bar, but that's all.

I did mine when I got my new BOMBSHELL cover. 1 coat of spray primer, 3 coats of black. two coats of white enamal with a brush on the spyder emblem, then 3 coats of clear. Then put the sucker on there.
