ya its just something I noticed during the process bugged me so I took care of it. I just washed my Heep today after letting all the things that were painted cure for the weekend. Looks good! too clean for a Jeep though haha

I highly recommend it. I am extremely happy with how mine turned out as well. Just read through this thread I posted some tips for it as I just finished mine.

The biggest tip I can give is patience. There will be a day/afternoon where you just don't feel like doing it- just force yourself to complete it. The plus is once you get a section done, it will make the other unpainted sections stand out a lot more. This is good and bad. Bad because it will stand out but good because it makes you want to continue and finish it.

Like I said, the majority of people can't do it all in one shot. You COULD...but it would be a long long day. Break it into sections.

Phrankoff, what was your technique for grinding the rust off the frame in the engine bay?

Where exactly do you mean? I used a 4" wire wheel as well as a 2" one. Also I used a cup wire wheel. Looks like a vacuum cleaner attachment.

Any other area was hand sanded with 100 grit. Hard to explain but you can get the paper in any space...so I would use a long strip of it and just pull it back and forth quickly.

Think of the motion of shining a shoe. Pull on one side then the other.Repeat.A lot.

All of the area of the frame that are in reach from underneath the Jeep are what I sanded and painted. Aside from taking off the tires and lifting it by the frame with a forklift, I did not go at the frame from any other angle.

Frame looks really nice.. Great job..Frames should always be inspected periodically.. I just swapped out my frame when i discovered a gapping hole that was hidden behind my fuel tank.. Thankfully i caught it before it broke..
