Treated my TJ to some new paint

So I gave my TJ some love and it gave me a dead battery! I still love it though.

Before:



Red neck paint booth:



After:



There is a glare, but I pulled the triangle from the window and sprayed it.

You are using tags.
For pic's you need [IMG] [/IMG] tags. ONLY. the site does the rest.

Or a easy way is to copy the URL of the photo you want to post and click on the little yellow button at the top of the message box. When it pops up, paste the link and click ok. It sets it up.

I appreciate your help. That is what I did the first time. My pics still don't show. I just started a photobucket account. I made my pics public. Not sure what I did wrong.

When you are looking at your photobucket account you can hover your mouse over the photo and a box below the photo will pop up. Copy the top link.

Or if you open the photo in photobucket, look to the right of the photo and you will see a url box. Copy the one that says "DIRECT link".

Jeep looks good. Amazing what a little paint will do. I just picked up a can of Plasti Dip today and I'm gonna experiment with some stuff. DJ

Prep Work?

Mine really needs this done, yours turned out great! I think I'm gonna do this for my TJ this week. Question though, what did you do to prep them before painting? Your finish on your fenders looks nice and even...I've seen some that sprayed theirs but the paint looks kind of uneven and blotchy in the light...any tips?

I pulled them off and wased them with dawn soap and water. Let them dry and then cleaned them with plastic cleaner (Others on this site skiped this step). I then put a light coat on and waited a few min and repeated 4 times. I was careful to not apply to much paint. They did look blotchy until they dried. Now they are very even.

nice job. I too am interested how they hold up. I wanna do mine and the triangle in the window. Only problem is the triangle in my 02 is so wasted that it may just be better to get a new one. Anyone know what thats called and where I might be able to find them?
