yeah i have sprayed the frame as well. if it is rusty then you might want to take a wire brush to it first and then spray, but if it is not rusty then you really dont need to sand.
some colors might show off imperfections a little more than others but you can tell after the first coat if sanding is necessary...if you need it to look neat.

APPSTATEwrangler yeah it is like a paint, not a degreaser, or whatever, it covers up the rust or prevents rust from forming. i did not prime or sand the shocks at all. it is mainly used to make rust covered metal look like new again.
but with the chrome bezels, i did sand it first and prime it an sand some more, just because i am using it as a paint and not a rust preventer, so i treat it like a real paint job, no need to do that for the shocks

Same as painting anything. Prep work... sand/remove all rust. clean it , primer, sand if needed, paint, sand if needed.

Yeah walmart is a good place to start. its really cheap and i used about half a can on all 4 shocks, no primer needed. and its supposed to prevent rust as well.
Its hard to see the shocks with the tires on but its the little things that will make a ride look good....IMO

My date with Rustoleum

It was a beautiful weekend here in NC and i needed a good reason to spend my day workin on my baby, sooooooo...............
i busted open the ole rustoleum cabnet and decided to clean her up a bit.

The shocks are only about 2 years old, but from wheelin at the beach they had gotten so rusty, so that is the first thing i tackled.

Before....


.....and After


With the tires on its hard to notice the shocks, but when you do see them it looks much better.

But i did not stop there... I noticed my headlight bezels were a little too shiny, so i blacked them out and now the only thing left to paint is the tires.
That will be soon.
