Here are the painted jeep pics

These didn't come out very well because they are webcam pictures..and its WAY to bright outside for my poor wittle webcam.
As you can see the hood and dash aren't done yet.
Somebody should be coming over tonight to help me finish..I would do it myself but I don't want to drip paint everywhere like I did the first time.
It's corvette yellow..pretty bright.
Its kinda gritty though.I read in my paint book that I believe on some kind of paints you need to wet sand it with 800 and then buff it..
Does that apply to acrylic enamal?
There are also a few runs..and some high and low spots.I wish i would have gone to perfection on bodywork..but it came out alright.I didn't think you would be able to see all those high's and lows.

Hmm.

Could almost call it sexy.

Do you think insurance will cover the carb if it some how "teleports" behind the tires of a 350 with dualies?

Re: Here are the painted jeep pics

just got done painting it.
The guy who was going to come over got sick so I painted it myself..I think it looks alright
I've also have to sand down the dash and paint it..but I need some more thinner.
I will hopefully be done today.

Re: Here are the painted jeep pics

Joey it came out better then alright. It came out great because you did it. You can now go around braggin that you painted YOUR jeep. Not how much you spent at the body shop. I want some good pics.

Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.

Re: Here are the painted jeep pics

Cool. As long as you did it you can have a feeling of pride.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] You are never going to have the first one looking like a show car. It only gets better on each one. Glad you stuck it out. Now you can do the next one better and better.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
How do you think we learned??????
Good job.
