Default 1984 CJ7 Build

Well its just about Fall and I just traded a pair of quads for a Jeep CJ7. This is the first Jeep I have ever owned so this build should be interesting! Im thinking that I picked the right one. The previous owner has done all of the hard or not fun work to it. Now I get to finish it.

The paint color is synergy green. The same as the new Camaro. I had the color mixed at a local paint shop and it was Sherwin Williams ultra 7000 and USC glamor clear for the clear-coat. I have painted a few times before. I didn't actually spray this one though. I had a buddy spray it with his equipment. I was lucky to have the fun job of sanding the 2 primer coats.

I got to do the glory work of spraying the color and clear which was alot of fun but Stroak deservies the credit for the paint job since he put the time in on the prep work.
