Tons of bondo the po had wabbed on the rockers and the jeep stamped name after he hammered it flat I welded in patch panels made out of sheet metal I didn't take a lot of pics of that anyway I ground the welded down covered them in metal to metal then rage filler then block sanded

Well my pics didn't load up ill figure it out kinda think maybe the bucket of mineral spirits I dropped my phone in has something to do with it lol
I have been working on this jeep since the end of Aug

It was a soup sandwich when I got it home but we got it pretty cheap and I wanted to brush up on my. Autobody skills. I have an 88 mustang GT
That will be m y next victim I have learned a lot not only from trial and error but from this site it has helped me out greatly and I thank you all for shared knowledge the rolling paint job is for me all the way my neighbors think Iam crazy in my driveway with rollers in both hands oh yeah they thought that anyway
And I would def recommend this painting method if you have a car with ate up clearcoat or fading whatever don't primer it or flat black it (eventhough I dig flat black on hot rods ) get some rollers and read up on this site a little hard work and you will dig the results and to the ney sayers blah blah
Throw your money at some go fast parts or whatever I have heard it all from a cpl know it all neighbors one by the way recently had a paint job he was happy with and paid for Orange peeeeel sorry to tell him I got better results with a roller lol and when I can I will post pics. Thanks again to everyone on here for all the great info

I got my phone wet one time, took it to Verizon, told them there was something wrong with it, he asked if I had gotten it wet and I said no why? He pulls off the battery and shows me the "dot" and it changes color when wet...BUSTED...LOL warranty is void.

It has gone well until last night. Wetsanded the entire vehicle washed let dry tack cloth
Put on a coat looked great but the hood went to Hell looks like someone sprayed red primer on it I have the hood removed I painted from the same batch as the rest of the truck and it looks great. Really bummed up till now the hood was perfect and I coulda got away without that last coat I will post pics and a full description of everything I have done when I get my pc back.
