Ok since my jeep is a major beater and I take it offroading, what better way to paint a fading beaten up jeep than with spraypaint? I chose to paint it up like an Army assault vehicle and add some zombie stickers. So to start you need a vehicle you plan to paint. (I advise it to be something that you dont really care about getting beaten up) For me that would be my 1990 Jeep Cherokee that I drive offroad a lot. Heres a picture of what it should look like once it is done.
Step 1: Find a Vehicle
Step 2: Supplies
-Spray paint (10 cans of Krylon Satin Italian Olive)
-a can of mineral spirits
-3 rolls of blue painters tape
-a sanding block
Other supplies you may need:
-newspaper or paper to tape up windows.
Step 3: Prep the Vehicle for Paint
Now remove all the parts you dont want painted off. (lights, roofrack, spare tire, etc)
Next You need to wash the vehicle.
After washing the vehicle you need to sand it down with 220grit sandpaper as shown in picture.
Step 4: Wipe Down
I then Painted the door jams so that I wouldnt have to go back and mess with it and it looks cleaner. (This step may require removal of some interior panels depending on model of vehicle. In my case I didnt have any really so I didnt have to worry about it.
Step 5: Mask Off the Windows
Step 6: PAINTING!
Step 7: Remove the Masking
Step 8: Reinstall Parts and Enjoy
Step 9: EXTRA STEP
I bought a front bullguard and wanted to paint it to match the truck. So ill add this step in aswell.
1) Sand down bullguard with 200 grit sandpaper
2) wipedown with acetone
3) paint with duplicolor truckbed paint
