Very nice.
What brand of paint are you using?
I shot my jeep a few years ago with U-Pol Raptor Paint.
Love the way it came out. I was thinking of doing something similar to my van. Cant wait to see how yours turns out.
Looks awesome.

An in law works at a plastic manufacturing / coatings shop down in Atlanta. So I don't know if the material is even branded. His coworker is a car guy and has done a porchse 944 that turned supposedly turned out good.

I'll pull pretty much everything, except glass. However the three conversion windows will come out, since they're being replaced. I think the sliding door will be the trickiest to mask. These guys spray anything and everything all day, so hopefully we can get it masked up solid.

I'm on the fence on pulling door handles, but will probably end up pulling them.

Got the rear suspension done! The Addco rear sway looks really nice. Hope that it helps, haven't been on the interstate yet.

Next weekend I'll start tackling the front.

Ladies and gentlemen, the front suspension is done!

The shaft kit I bought for the lowers was the last one on Rock Auto, made by FVP. I had to use washers on top of 2 of the u-bolts, since the replacement shafts were a smaller diameter and I ran out of threads.

I had a shop push and pull the control arm bushings. They said it was not easy.

Here are some before and after photos, and one of the whole setup with the Addco sway bar.

Now that it's back on the ground, I can log some OBD1 data with my ALDL cable and send it off to TBI chips to get a better fuel map burned.
