Thanks everyone. The exo egg project has stalled with the weather finally breaking (we are in construction) so less time to work on it. Here are a few updated pics though of painting it white. Our diy paint job isn't perfect. Keeping up with such a big area has proven harder than we thought...and that's painting one half at a time. We have actually painted one side twice and plan to paint the other side again to try and get it to a point we can deal with. Have even talked to some painters about doing it for us but so far none of them have shown any interest in it. Hubby also has an issue with the "white" not being anywhere close to matching my white jeep. I'm not as anal about it but if we were to find someone that would paint it we would opt for color matching it to my jeep to satisfy his ocd. Lol. As is I think it looks better than its original faded and stained up look but it's got flaws. Anyway the paint is all that is holding us back from putting it back together. Everything else has been fabbed up and is there, just need this paint job to be done. Wish us luck!
