That's the plan. Cowl and front grill for now. Although I may go straight for bed liner on the grill.

I did some work for a door and hardware company out of Cheshire 4-5 years ago. Chill place.

japanrider Also I use the newer line water based paint here because of laws and such (most of the time) and have no issues blending in even with older based paints and even metalics and pearls but if there is a high flake or candy base you in for a headache. Just takes time and practice. Been painting now for 30 years everything from cars and bikes to boats and planes.

japanrider The hardest part will be blending in the new paint and clear with the older faded clear and paint. You should polish out an area and see how different the base paint will be compared to a new coat. You can fade/blend the paint to trick the eye or wet sand everything and recoat with clear to bring it back out. The sides will fade less than the hood because of sunlight but after all the paint is stock and several years old. PPG will be your best bet and no need to do base clear. I own a shop here and if you want a step by step just PM me. Also if you post pics of the damage we can proabably give you a better answer on how to fix it. Some time oxidation is only in the clear and can be fixed with a good wet sanding and reapplication of clear. Or you can check out some of the detailing shops and see if they do a glass coating with prep and can make even older paint look new.

GoldenSahara00 I did this corner body and paint work with spray paint and clear coat from paint scratch . com. 30 bucks for the two an they are the bigger cans. Matched awesome. I'm not even good at body work. You can't tell now except I missed a small spot when wet sanding and left a line. Since you are painting a whole piece it should be a breeze to get it to match.

If you have a paint gun and resources to do a professional job yourself, do it. I was very impressed with how well the paint matched however. You just give then the vin and they make you a custom can.

Uhh i dont think that is correct, atleast when Iwas in the collision field. It was PPG. Nevertheless any good paint company will have a good match, " closer match" i beg to differ.

Sorry to hijack.
Metallics and pearls its almost a necessity that you base clear them, however any painter worth his salt could get a good enough match to pull off a butt match on that panel. I used to do it all the time, tinting was my speciality

Good call on the PPG, i use it everyday. If your just gonna do the cowl i wouldnt think twice about putting single stage black on it. The concept line from PPG has a great urethane single stage. No reason to base clear it.

Jeep tin man Your Jeep is base coat clear coat, single stage paint WILL NOT match, also gone are the days of "Panel Painting". I suggest that you paint the whole front end and blend under the door openings. These paints also require a special nozzel on the gun which is smaller than the older guns. This paint has to be atomized more than the regular acrylic enamel paints. GOOD LUCK in your endeavor. You may be better off going to a local shop, unless you have some knowledge of the "newer" paints. STEVE

Which paint to use

I have to repaint my cowl because it has sun damage. My question is, what is the best paint to make sure it matches the rest of the Jeep?

The Jeep is black.
