    Pics of my new paint job!!! It\'s finally done!!**Updated with top on!!**

    I painted the top and put it on. It now looks complete!!!

    http://coloradok5.com/gallery/Estebans-album

    Well after about 5 weeks of having the blazer in the garage and working on it every night. It is finally done. The new paint came out better than I expected and I'm extremely happy<img src="http://coloradok5.com/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif"> with it. YES there are MANY flaws......and NO it is not a perfect paint job.......BUT I am very happy with it for only paying about $200 in materials. I use it off road alot and drive it as much as I can. So I wanted something that would look good but that I wouldn't cry about when I scratch it<img src="http://coloradok5.com/forums/images/icons/tongue.gif">

    I still need to paint the top Black and put it back on , but in my album you will be able to see the before and after pics. Man what a difference. Anyways, let me know what you think.

    Oh and by the way, I know that the rear fender looks funny but I'm planning on a new rear bumper that will wrap around the side a little to protect the body a little more.

    BE <font color=blue>AMERICAN</font color=blue> BUY <font color=blue>AMERICAN</font color=blue>!!!!

    So Cal Big Dawgs are coming to a wheeling spot near you!!

    Looks real good. What did you use to paint it, it doesn't look like a rattle can job. I like the color.

    I think it looks pretty damn good for a home garage paint job. I am thinking of doing the same in the spring .Is that one step paint or clear coat? If I can get mine to look half as good as that one I will be happy..............

    The front bumper is a Smittybilt bumper that I got for free form another member of the site. the tires are Goodyear M/T's(hummer tires) And I wish I could go to Moab but not this year.[​IMG]
