Ran around some new trails over in Georgia. What a great time we all had.

Hoping to get one like this some day

The trick to this paint is to lightly paint the cover first, don't try to cover it all with one coat. Let the first coat dry, which doesn't take long at all. Re-coat and let it dry. Repeat until you get the desired finish. It took about 1 1/2 cans for my application.

Before and after pics.

Getting ready for paint on Tuesday. Got the flairs off, most of the miscellaneous other stuff but still have a few other things to deal with.

Picked the Jeep up a couple of weeks ago but just wasn't in the mood to work on it. So tonight was the night I got motivated and replaced the yellow turn signals with clears, got the headlight thing-a-ma-bobs, hood latches and vent cover all back on. Still have to reinstall the winch, fender flares, tail lights, and a whole bunch of other stuff. But tomorrow's another day, right?

Missed a good run last weekend cuz my Jeep wasn't road worthy so I got with it today. The winch is back on, fender flares are on, passenger 1/2 door is on and a whole bunch of other little stuff.

I really like the clear turn signal covers but just not feeling the chrome hinges anymore. Probably have to change them out later but for now, it-is-what-it-is.

Once a year I give the Jeep a through cleaning, whether it needs it or not. So today I started and somewhere in the middle of it all I found my lost key fob (for the GMC) If's been rumored that the washing machine got it, then the dryer and even possibly that it was just lost out in one of the fields. But for all these months it's been hiding right behind the drivers seat under a bunch of leaves.

So after that I got the 1/2 doors adjusted, new tail lights on and functioning as expected, dumped the chrome mirrors for plain black and installed them. Had a bug in the lighting system but got that worked out. Also, a BIG thanks to Ronnie Smith who dropped by and played with the old girls carburetor. Runs pretty damn good now!

So all in all it's been a productive day. Painted the interior door panels too but I'm just not liking the color. I'll make a run to town tomorrow for paint and try again with a different color.

Got the full doors and the half doors painted at the same time I had the Jeep painted, but the half-door panels and hardware were a mess. So today I pulled off the panels and painted them. While they were drying I cleaned and lubed the door latch mechanisms, replaced the old interior latches and replaced all the cute little snappy things that hold the panels to the door.

It all went back together like clockwork (first time that’s ever happened) and the doors really look nice!

As I understand it - you're NOT using vinyl or plastic paint on the interior. Any reason you decided not to?

I started using Dupli-Color Vinyl & Fabric spray for everything last year. It dries much faster and produces a better finish, imho.

Gauges have started failing faster than ObamaCare. On the way to town the other day my temp gauge suddenly read -0-. On the way home the gas gauge stopped working. Oil gauge and Clock quit working before I bought the Jeep so now the only gauge that currently works is the Volt Meter.

I pulled the cluster out and looked at the circuit board and although the picture below makes it look pretty good, it's not. The hot wire to the clock was completely toast so I bypassed it and it's working fine now.

I could probably bypass the circuit board for the rest of the gauges as well but I'm just not up to the headache that I'm sure will come with the job. Found new ones on ebay and at Morris. They're both the same price ($90.00) so I think I'll go with Morris. I'm include the link in case anyone else needs to frivolously spend $90.00.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm leaning toward using Duplicolor on the back seat, dash, and door panels. I'm just having trouble finding out what Duplicolor works as "Splice". Anyone know?

You take Hwy 106 out of Dillard GA and turn Rt on hale Ridge Rd. From there you can choose whichever trail/road you wish. Follow it to the end and you'll find a cool river crossing (as long as it hasn't been raining too much. )
