finally in paint

Due to a work schedule that keeps me busy. I finally got around to painting my CJ7. With the exception of a few minor problems in the clear coat, ( I just got hot and tired! It gets to a prerson like this in Houston this time of year.) It turned out pretty good for a do it yourselfer.

Re: finally in paint

I gotta ask... Is that just a regular garage type space that you built a paint booth in with plastic tarps? I've thought about trying this when the time comes to paint mine. Paint looks great BTW!! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Looks great! I can't wait to see pictures of the finished product.

I started driving mine months ago (it's not really finished yet and I'm not sure it ever will be) and I still smile just about every time I lay eyes on it because I know I'm the one who built it.

Have fun with the rest of your build and keep us informed on how it's going.

Re: finally in paint

That's how it was done, In a regular garage. I cheaped out and should have used a heavier plastic. I used an old AC blower motor to blow filtered air into the booth and built a sperate frame 12" high to go under the garage door. I had AC filters in this to keep the overspray off the neighbors stuff.

I have about $75 invested in the spray booth, about $300 invested in th body and paint not including new replacement panels (Ie.. full floor pan, corner panels) or my labor.

Would I do it again? Sure, but not with such a rusty chunk of metal.

The best part, I did it myself and did it my way!
