I just placed my order for the John Deere Green paint (and some primer, and a couple of prep items). So, when it arrives (UPS ground, so next week some time), I can start painting the body pieces. One step closer to a finished look! not to mention a big step of progress on the FJ40. I decided to go with acrylic enamel. Kevin says it is better than the urethane, or laquer, and you don’t have to use a clear coat (in fact, it says you are not even supposed to). It was also a little less expensive, even with the hardner and reducer. I bought two gallons, even though I will probably only need one. This way I will have more if I need it, since I have never actually painted a vehicle before. I will also have some for later, if (and when) I need to make body damage repairs. And just as importantly, Kevin said that the enamel paints will be coming off the market in October, due to new EPA regulations. Now I will have it, and not have to worry about it.
and of course, I will post pics when I have body parts in final paint.
