Got the cage all painted up. Didn't paint the inside, still want to add some more.







Oh, I painted the Jeep too.

Did you paint over the mud that's been on it since you wrecked it? Kidding It looks great.

No, you should have saw me at 5:30 last night power washing the Jeep in the driveway, using the headlights on my truck so I could see.

How involved did you get with the prep work of the paint? About how many hours do you think you have into it w/out the exo cage?

Only about 4-5 in taping scuffing and spraying. I still need to do the door jams, rear bumper, under the hood, etc. Those will all be satin black, like the cage.

I'm color blind, so it's only a different shade of gray for me.

The factory paint was pretty bad, and was peeling off most of the dents.

Hope you're going to add more to that exo before taking it out, especially after new paint and all the work you've put into it

That's all the tube it will see on the exterior, besides something for the front fenders, but that's not for a little while. It will get more tube on the interior.
