        $$$$$$$$$$$

        Well Alaskan, what we all need now is real life numbers! How many rattle cans did you go through, both color and clear? What was the final cost? Was it worth the effort?

            12 Cans Base Color
            18 Cans Clear
            8 Can's Primer

            Total cost-- right around $280-$300 for everything

            And this project was like any other jeep project----It's an SOB while doing it, but once it's done, you kick back with a cold one and admire the job you've just done. Yes it was well worth all the blood; lots, lots, lots of sweat; no tears this time though..though my wife may have had a few...

            I wanted to thank everyone again for all the help. This forum, along with 4WD has transformed my Jeep from a piece of metal headed to the junk yard, to something I'm very proud of, thanks again.

              VERY NICE

              I'm totally jealous of the clean paint. Now if I could squeeze out another month and $300 bucks maybe the wife would let me do the same with me....probably not

              It looks fantastic, you have every right to be proud of it.

                Cabot's a nice town, looks like you're in a nice neighborhood, too.
                Your Jeep is just great looking.
                It looks brand new.
                Just don't break your arm pattin' yourself on the back!

                Now you get to enjoy this... until the next thing!

                  Well, you should be proud of your work! I wonder if the new Dupli-Color PAint Shop Finishing System http://www.duplicolor.com/products/paintshop.html would have been a more economical way to go with even better results. You can get a decent spray gun for $50.00, but that's assuming you have access to a compressor.

                    It may have been more economical, but this project was like a vendeta, a challenge from all the body shops I went to that said it would look like crap.

                      Well, they were close... I've seen that color changing diapers... although changing diapers, I've seen every color but blue.

                        That's a solid looking CJ-7. I'm jealous.
