New to the site 90 yj

Well I'm new to the site and to jeeps but no stranger to working on older cars. Here is my jeep I bought one month ago. It did not run, interior destroyed, exterior a mess. So within one month I painted the exterior with rustoleum camo spray paint, new headlights, markers, blinkers, some bondo work, herculiner entire interior, painted dash, tan&black neoprene seat covers, made 3x in line fuse 12v accessory plug in's, tuned carb, oil change, axle fluid change, new tranny cause the one it came with was shot, made my own oil separator in a inline pcv connect, new clutch master, new brake lines, new internal slave,New spark plugs and distributer, new tie rod, new altenator, new battery with all that said here is an after pic. Still plenty more on my list to do but just wanted to share.

I like the paint job. Even before I bought my yj I told my wife I was going to paint it OD green. It is also red like yours was. Any advice on the paint job prep, application & finish, materials, cost, etc. Thanks & welcome to WF!
