Hey guys, I decided to go ahead and paint my Jeep after seeing my buddies truck, I'm going with flat black. I already primed the hood and got it all wet sanded, my only question for you guys is have any of you painted your jeeps? And if so did you replace the decals that were on yours? I'm having a hard time deciding if I should leave them off and go with the clean look or find a website to purchase new ones. I'll post pics when it's all done. Thanks.
I have the stock jeep rims but I already painted them black, but I did leave the jeep logo on the center cap aluminum to match the luge nuts, they actually look pretty good. As for trim pieces everything is already black but the center of the dash which is grey. I have the rocky mountain edition so the seats that I have are two tone black and grey with jeep embroidered on the headrest which is also black.
You could always tape off the jeep center caps and paint them more of a matte silver then go with a silver jeep decal...you could also get a silver 'zombie outbreak" sticker and place it centered above your jeep decal...heres a rough idea of my red jeep with silver sticker.
black and silver always looks good together lol...hers my black/silver R6 before i painted it
It's car paint. Just went to the local auto body place and picked up a gallon for about 75 bucks, but only used about 1/4 of it. Then I just had a buddy of mine prep it and spray it for me. I'm going to pay him 100 bucks. So with all the materials and everything it only ran me about 200 dollars, not bad I'd say.
I'll post more pics probably tomorrow, it's just a 1 stage paint, no clear needed. The paint itself is just called flat black. At least that's what the lady told me at the shop. I scuffed the body up real good just to make sure it went on really well but from what i heard it will stick to damn near anything.
super clean , and for the price i rather do real car paint , then plati dip of rhino line, i would just have to buy a spray gun for my compresser but i want one any way, what brand of paint was that? ill have to go to one of my local paint shops
