1990 Yj Build

1990 Yj, had a lot of new parts including the Nutter thing, new Carb, starter, all new suspension, sway bars, and a good shiny black hard top. The doors have the sliding windows. These pictures are of the Hod Rod Flatz Desert Storm Tan paint job we did today. I ordered a new windshield frame which just arrived after painting was done for the day.

Two coats of high build primer, two coats of Hod Rod Flatz. We sanded the surface pretty good.

I painted on two coats of Herculiner in the floor and cargo area. That is some nasty crap but I like the look and it feels very tough.

Ii've got a ton of new parts, like wheel flares, windshield, LED headlights, etc. I'll post more pics after I start getting things installed.

I'm digging that tan color. Almost looks like the CARC Tan that the military vehicles use. I'm curious to how difficult it is to clean and maintain, being a flat color. I plan on painting my YJ tan, but I'm not sure if I will do gloss or flat, because of the difficulties with maintaining flat paint.

I believe the color is supposed to be military color that was used in Desert Storm, since it's called Desert Storm Tan.

There are degrees of flatness. This paint came with flattener already mixed in but you can add it to other paint. You could also do a flattened satin color.

New windshield frame prefit, it went well except my son in law broke the windshield prying on it. I've decided to go black on the frame.

Previous owners had their own ideas about wiring issues, and I'm having to do all of it over. I blew a fusible link last night messing with my ignition switch. Ordered, meanwhile primed doors and tailgate inside.

Lessons learned today: disconnect the negative terminal (duh). Clean hvlp gun thoroughly after using (duh).

I got a set of LED headlights from Amazon. They were straight plug and play. Here is an old square headlight vs. the LED.
