Nice!!! Masking is the worst part of any paint job.... other than prep that is. Put some pics up with it installed.

I'll have have a nice bunch of pics and write up on those that want to do change oils in both diffs and xfer case.

I took it to the shop to get tranny filters and oil changed and im happy i did cuz without a drain plug your dealing with a ton of fluid pressing down on that pan and when you break that seal you better hope it goes where you want... guy at shop didnt and god it made a mess! I tired my hardest not to laugh but i had to walk away for while.

OH... totally didnt say what i did.

Firstly clean it! Has some oil on it and that's no good for painting. Got a rag and acetone and scrubbed.

automotive primer - 3 light coats then took some fine sandpaper and sanded it some.. then 3 more light coats. Letting it dry 30min between each coat. THEN let it set for a week.
Base - black engine enamel - 3 light coats to setup a base then went heavier on 3 more. Again 30min each coat, then week setup.

Accent - green engine enamel - after masking spraying light coats i put on like 6 coats since it didnt hide too well on the black. Last two coats where pretty heavy.
Dried for a week.

Peeled off masking then 6 light/medium coats of standard clear coat waiting 15min per coat... after it was dry to the touch, i carefully put it in the box it came in and like usually.. its drying for well two weeks now since the gf and I are going to have a date day since we haven't gone out and not done anything for a long time.

My shop is my parents place since that is were all my tools and room to work is at... sadly it is an hour and a half way. So its a weekend only trip. Now with my girl working we can only go out there for one day if she comes along - which she always wants to so she can see the family and stuff. So... I don't get much done. Next week im going alone prolly so I can get what I want done and see about doing a complete detail since winter is creeping up. Then top that off that I work 2nd shift and im gone from 1pm to midnight. Now you all know why I dont get much done. lol
