My 95 build/restoration

Bought my 95 2.5 manual from my cousin July 2013. It had been sitting in her back yard for about 2 years. I've been going through step by step as I have time and money. Just building it with a mild lift and hope to replace the 2.5 with a LS once it dies. So here is the progress so far.

Color

The paint is Duplicolor Paint Shop Burnt Orange Metallic. Cleared with Paint Shop Semi-Gloss Clear. First time shooting with paint and was pretty happy with how it's going so far. Damn bugs landing in the paint sucks but it's not meant to be perfect. It's a Jeep, it's going to get scratched up and beat up. Not to worried. I shot it with 3 coats primer, 4 coats color (light 1st, medium 2nd, pretty heavy 3 and 4), and 5 on the clear in the same pattern as color except 2 medium and 2 heavy.

I need to repair a lot of the same damage on my own 95. What gauge sheet metal did you use for the patches? Only spot-welded, ground and surface patched?

Looks great by the way.

I like the Colorado. What next? Tires. Lift. Or keeping it simple. Black rims would look killer.

It was either 16 or 18, I don't remember. Yes, it was just tacked and ground and body filler.

Tires are new 31s. Want to paint rims black. Looking at Zone 6" lift but maybe just do the 4". All 4 shocks are leaking and all 4 leafs are flat. In process of buying house so Jeep stuff has to wait :'(
