Hey man, I think youre doing a good job...let the paint cure longer than the 24 hrs because of the humidity....if you have a heater in your garage, turn that on at night.

Like ddtt225 said, 1200-1600 grit then another coat. The dullness you have in your paint should come out after you polish at the end your paint job. Good Luck

Paint job complete

Well gents, I am done with this project. I still need to buff a few more times to really bring out the shine; however, I am going to let the coat harden a bit more.

Overall, I am pretty happy with it... Honestly, I did not follow to instructions to a T and melded other similar jobs together...

The first picture is a crappy pic of what it used to look like... 2 weeks later, here were are! I am truly enjoying this YJ and look forward to working on it some more.

Thanks for looking fellas!

Very nice. And as long as you're happy with it, that's all that matters.

For 50 and some time and effort that looks damn good!

Good Job for a Marine

I am a lazy ass when it comes to painting! My 74 Scout II got a murder black rattle can job, my 90 YJ got a OD green rattle can and my 95 YJ might get the same!

You might be able to see my old Scout rolling around in San Clemente!

This was Before the Civil war I was in from 58 to 62.

Yeah it was really good duty, it was learning and teaching experience for me and as you said the extra change wasn't bad. but the best part was the promoting in grade that went with the job.
about 1990 I was off work for a while with a injury to keep occupied I bought a 1955 Willis Pickup and did a complete frame off restoration I was hooked on jeeps after that. I got more enjoyment looking for parts and talking to old farts like me than I did actually working on the jeep

I can relate to that..My first one was a bare frame up 50 willys jeep..bought an entire truck load of new,old willys parts so it was tight as new when finished.Of course I put a 327 in it and did a spring over plus a home made body lift to clear the 38 inch ground hawgs.Top end still wasn't all that with the 5.38 gears but that old jeep would go anywhere..

When I did the 55 I lived in the Sierras up above Sacramento Ca. I called a buddy to bring me some Firewood and he said come get it and I told him I couldn't. So he loaded it and brought it to me. There sat my Willis with a 2200 dlr. acrylic lacquer paint job. His only comment was you Shure fu////ed up a perfectly good Stump Puller.

I always liked those trucks..my son had one with a flatbed.it had a huge winch mounted in the middle of the bed. he almost flipped it over a couple of times when he would get stuck in the woods and couldn't hook to a tree pretty much straight behind it.....there is a dude in Montana that is on the tv show mountain men that has a sweet old willys truck too
