Bought a 95 yj at the end of last summer. My first. Seller said he just had it repainted. I didn't realize till winter when I went to wax it, that it was a rattle can job and it was sprayed over rust. So I decided to strip her down with some Rustoleum aircraft paint remover and 40 grit paper. Some minor body hole repair and bondo, and now I back to reprainting. I'm using an electric Harbor Freight HVLP sprayer and duplicolor paint shop primer, championship white, and clear coat. I built a paint booth in my third car garage. Here are some pics of where I'm at so far.

I'm considering same job on a yj at some point in future; also white. Your work looks great! Can you post pics of final product after all reassembled? Thanks.

Finished! Well except for the rocker bars ( beep to buy a bolt extraction kit to get my rounded, rusted body bolts off. Also still want to upgrade to some 33" but all in good time. Had to relocate the license plate due to the new rear bumper with tire carrier blocking the old one from hinging. If I have time in the near future I'll try to get a list off all the items added and cost as we'll as materials used.
