Talking new paint job.

alright jeepers, im thinking about re-painting my jeep right here soon. probably in the next couple weeks im going to be gathering my paint supplies. What do yall think of a 95 Jeep Wrangler...PLASTI-DIPPED?
any thoughts? as i begin the process of painting it in a couple weeks or so, i will post pictures of the paint process as it is being done.

Its cool till it starts peeling off like a sunburn.

Ask my friend.

Why not use real paint?

well, to be honest, I painted my front grille with plasti-dip and it has help up very nicely. few nics in it from the ungodly louisiana bugs we have but other than that it really has help up well. for one, my compressor is shot and i dont have proper ventalation to spray it at home, nor do I have the heat source to cure it like a normal paint booth.

I may have to take that into consideration. I worked in a fab/body shop so I know how to do prep work (masking, taping, sanding, etc.) its just my only problem is its my daily so if I leave it sitting up I cant get to work. I may if the weather is nice the next couple days try and get to do it. biggest issue is I live in a "residential" area so im not sure how people around me would feel about having paint particals hitting there house since paint floats forever and sticks where ever it lands.

thanks..it had a ton of clear on it so the paint was pretty much protected..but yeah,that was a jeep we did for my wife and she didn't even want to drive it on a dirt road and get it dirty..Needless to say,we sold that one for a killer price..
