Painting Full Doors
 
I am about to change my half doors for some full doors. The full doors are white and my TJ is Dark Green. Has anyone had any experience with painting doors to match the rest of your rig? Or do I have to get this professionally done? :zap:

well it shouldnt be that hard, but if you want it to be PERFec tthen you have to get it done by a pro

but it sholdsnt be that much for two doors!

This may sound dumb but I've done this:

Sand the doors down, do any body work if needed, and prime them. If you go to bare metal you'll need to use etching primer. Once you have done all the prep work, take them to Macco or someplace like that. When you get them back, sand them with 2000 grit sandpaper. Use water when sanding, and sand very light. Then polish the doors yourself using a buffing wheel and a paint polish. Most of the work is done by you but the spray is left up to them. So just prep them, and finish them. With a little work the doors will look perfect and it wont cost a lot.

If I sell the half doors then this becomes an upgrade rather than an addition, making it much cheaper.

=( How much you thinking of selling them for? I know someone who is in the market for some.

Going from half to full doors isnt an upgrade...its a step toward owning a hummer...:flipoff:

So you enjoy unzipping to pay a toll? I prefer the roll-down method myself, plus when off-roading even the full doors remove with the same two bolts the half-doors use.

I agree, the only way to wheel is without any doors at all....
