foo.c For what it's worth, the jeep is all scratched up now. I tried some plastic wrap stuff last time and it drove me crazy on the drive up to the K Trail. I had to pull over and take it all off. So she got all scratched up.

At first it really bothered me, but now the scratches are like a badge of honor.

Now that's an idea right there! lol Though it might be more fun to have an older jeep for the rough stuff? ;-)

donmeca2020 Thats awesome !! lol yea painters tape is a great invention. not only for actual painting but ive seen car guys use that for just about everything these past 8 years or so of being into the auto scene.

FTW painters tape doesn't leave any residue on the area that it was stuck on. i used to use some every couple of months to cover the holes on my trunk of my evo, when i would decide to dewing.

I think the best part about the trip for us was just meeting and hanging out with some people from the forum, but it was cool to see how capable Jeeps are, especially since this is my first one.

Don't flatter yourself, but you were the person I was looking most forward to meeting. I kept thinking, "I really need to meet the smartass behind the computer screen."
I should have told you to F@#k off so as not to disappoint you.

If you are gonna wheel where I live you are gonna get scratches, and lots of them. Its inevitable. Sad but true.

foo.c Honestly, if it was free and the paint was nice, I would still hate scratching it up.

Blackened Damn that is a lot of tape. I don't blame you for doing it. Faster than plasti dipping and cheaper than paying for scratch removal.
11-11-2012 10:05 PM
foo.c Here's a pic I took after we got home and pulled the tape off. There's no real obvious damage from the tape.

In fact, I think if I had perfectly taped it everywhere, I wouldn't even have to wash it.

Neat......
I don't think the tape has harmed anything. Even if it did, it will be way easier to clay or buff out than the what the tree branches would have done. It was like nails on a chalkboard for miles. I will take a closer look when we get some sun.

I started with 3" tape on the roof. Ran out and switched to 2". Ran out of that and had to the last half of a rear door with 3/4" tape.

It took about 2 hours.

Yeah, yeah. It's a jeep, scratches, blah blah blah.

I hate scratches, tape is cheap.
Good point. I hate the hell outta scratches, dings, dents, etc. I'm a bit of a diva about my Jeep, even though it's a Jeep.

Con Artist THAT'S GREAT!

...But yeah, why? That's going to be a hell of a sticky mess to clean off the Jeep, plus I wouldn't be surprised if there's some damage to the paint.

lolpetewtf I must say it looks far better now than with BFG.
