YAY!! got CJ painted!!
thats right folks, its painted! i got the jeep finished today. its OD green with black bumpers, windshield/hood hinges, roll bar, and spare tire swing-out thing. its all rattle-can, but i took care in it and sanded and stuff. im currently working on the embossed "JEEP" on the sides and tailgate, painting them black. i never did like all those monochromatic cars. the nice shiny black over the green is a great improvement over flaking gray primer. also, i put axle grease in all the hinges. prety neat, the hood/tailgate sure open easy now.so im happy. it looks a bit army-ish, but hey, its cool. also, i discovered something shocking.. when i took off the hood and windshield hinges, i found out that there was NEVER any paint under them. they were starting to get rusty too. so everyone, check your hinges, you may wanna spray some paint under em! ill post a pic of jeep whenever i get the digital camera out and all. unfortunatly, i cut my finger today while working on jeep. but this jeep aint beat me so far, though its trying its best. ill take it yet!! muahahahahaha!! thanks for the support and info,
sparky, the triumphant(and green-spotted)
