I really like the clear coat you got on it. I think ill stay with the spray until I can afford a paint job that is in fact good and will last a long time. Thank you for all the help and thanks for helping me realise that painting is in fact more pricey then I had originally thought

JACK3D Dragon.. That paint job would look great on a show car. Too shiny for my liking. I wouldn't put that much into a vehicle that I am going to drive through the woods.
06-28-2013 07:38 PM
harleydragon as I said,everyone has their own opinion..this is one of my paint jobs..I had about 4 or 5 hundred in materials in it but it will hold up better and have a much higher gloss than a factory paint job..It is all in what you are looking for or can afford but this little jeep brought me a pretty good price..
06-28-2013 06:12 PM
JACK3D If he wants to rattle can his jeep he can rattle can if. He wasn't asking for a bunch of people telling him how it will look bad. He was asking advice from those who have done it.

Like I posted above, multiple people told me how shitty mine would look if I did it. Well those people have now said that it looks good.

If you want to paint yourself, go for it.

Well if you read the above posts someone mentioned that it is a good 400-500 just for materials for a quality spray so using your deductive reasoning skills, which i know may not be developed fully since you are 16, one could surmise that paying 500 for an entire spray would probably involve either cheap materials, shortcuts, bad prep or a combination of them all.

Personally i wouldn't worry about painting it unless you really want to and i would save the money and put it towards something else. Paint to me is the last thing to be done.

I would also steer clear of rattle can jobs. I haven't seen one that looks as good as a bad professional spray.

JACK3D Adamfitz- Here are a few before and afters. No I didn't use sealer or anything like that. All i used was rattle cans. Rustoleum flat black. Again, prep is the key, sand it down, and clean it well. When you spray, hold the can about 8-12 inches away and use an even sweeping motion. It's not difficult, just time consuming. Tape off anything you don't want to get over spray on. I also would recommend doing it with the top off. Let me know if you have any questions.

I kept the jeep "two toned" like you see in pic #3 for about three weeks. I liked it at first, anything to break up the red. Eventually, I just went all black, and like it much better. I'm actually thinking of going OD Green soon. That's the great thing about doing it yourself with rattle cans. If you don't like something, just re do it. Doesn't take much expertise, and I can have my jeep an entirely different color in a day, for about 100 bucks. Not bad, and much better than paying a shop to do it, and being stuck with it.

I used about 11 cans of spray paint, cost me about 8 bucks a can. I did the whole thing, including my rims for about $100.

Prep is important. I spent about 4 hours sanding mine down, and cleaning it. After i sanded, I cleaned with an alcohol based cleaner. Then wiped it clean with some shop towels. dried it off, and sprayed away.

If you want pics of my before and after let me know.
Yeah man would you mind? Also did you use a sealer or anything?

What tools do you own to spray?

Any help would be awesome! Thanks ahead of time!
I do my own paint jobs but if you don't have the ability to do a job properly then let someone do it that does..You will never regret having a job well done

George C my jeep was a full color change, its hard to say what is worth things these days. If you will be in the woods and etc then a quick rope a dope may be in your budget. Mine was done as a favor for a buddy with budget materials but still came out looking great. SUmmit line of paint products was used
