Sounds good! We did our own painting also, takes practice, didn't turn out too bad but figured we weren't building a show car. I think it adds pride perfect or not, that you did it yourself!

We traded our '10 for a '14. The 14 came w/hard top and I didn't want it. Had them swap it with my soft top from the '10. They found out it wouldn't fit, they said a '10 only fits a '10.
