Did you spray that or roll it on?

I hope you never need to remove any hinge bolts.

I did a ton of prep. Like 14 hours. When you think your done, do more is all I can say. Like Bro said two comments later I should had bought some new body screws for the mounts but i am still on the first coat so im just going to cut losses and undo them now and paint over with some ear plugs in the screw holes... Seems like no matter what you can't be ready enough.

When doing the full body I got to say, two gallons and about 10 rollers to be sure you have enough if you plan on rolling it on. I also bought a extendable roller that i could fit two of the small rollers on to make the application quicker and easier to hit the hard to reach spots... :wavey:

How hard is the stuff to work with on an area as large as the entire body?

Bluegrass 04-11-2012 12:34 PM

No harder than the inside im sure, just have to take your time with prep and be sure to have all that you need when you start to ensure you are ready. If you have the garage available i would take apart what you can to paint it.

what did you do paint it white first as an under coat? Show us some pics of it outside in the day light :thumb:

Bluegrass 04-11-2012 10:40 PM

yeah the white is a spray enamel but the weather is killing me! Its to cold to paint and its going to rain when it warms up so its going to be next week till i am able to even think about painting. Pictures of it half done is going to be best i can do for now.. lol. But hell if i had better light when i did it the first time i think i would had been able to do the whole jeep with one gallon. All it really needs now is a touch up. Might have to do the inside with whats left over from the other gallon.

Bringing back this thread from the dead, But does anyone know if you need 1 Gallon or 2 to do the outside of the tub?

The Silver Gorilla 04-09-2014 12:55 PM

2 gallons. I'm about to do it, but when panting what did you do about your tailgate hinges, hood hing and door hinge?

Rlhoffman 04-09-2014 01:25 PM

Looks like bluegrass painted anything attached to the vehicle.
I.E. the body halves of the door hinges, but not the door halves.
All of the tailgate hinges, hood hinges and vent grill

The Silver Gorilla 04-09-2014 01:44 PM

i mean if you just have them moving while it dries it shouldn't be suck a problem, right??
