Default spray paint job on your rig???

How many people have done spray paint jobs on their rigs? I am going to be doing my jeep as soon as I get all of the work done on my winter rebuild. I just got done painting one of my buddies jeeps over the weekend. Lets see some pics of rigs that have been spray painted. I will add some pics when the paint is dry.

We were considering doing that, but decided on spray right now. I may still consider going that way on mine though. Do you have any pics of your jeep after paint?

I used implement paint on mine, I think it was rustoleum. It sprayed like crap, it has the old school pin point nozzle on it, not the new fan tips. Took about 7 cans I think

Its not the greatest, but for $30 I can't complain. I resprayed one of the fenders and it turned out like perfect, so I ended up sanding it down and reshooting it so it looked as bad as the rest. lol

Tower paint in Wisconsin is a great place to buy rattle can paint from. They use actual automotive paint and can match any paint code. So if there is a cool paint color you like just get the code and give them a call. I think I paid $8 a can with metallic flake in it.

alot of people misunderstand the painting process. I am by no means an expert but from what i have learned from trying to learn to do better quality painting myself was the fact that people think that no prep work is involved. so plain and simple.. PREP IS EVERYTHING. and can make or break your paint job. I plan on rattlecanning my blazer and i rattle canned some interior pieces in my truck after alot of sanding and prep work. still need to finish the rest of them once the weather gets nicer

2nd pic loosk photoshopped/fake but it is real
