What I've been up to...
« on: July 11, 2021, 11:53:20 AM »
My fiance and I have been restoring my Jeep. It needed new shocks, rear shock mounts, fenders, seats, hood, tailgate, and engine work. I replaced the Renault/Bendix throttle body injection and ignition/computer with a Webber 32/36 carb and duraspark ignition, it runs perfect now! Once we got it street worthy we painted it with camo green plastidip. I still need to get the new fenders on and paint the top.

The plastidip paint job looks surprisingly good.   Is it sprayed on?

Nice job! Seems to me you changed most parts of the jeep.

I'll have remember this.   I've used Plastidip before but would not have thought it spray so well.    Good job.
