"I used a wagner electric paint gun" says Tanino!

I have never considered that method to paint a vehicle. Tell me more about what you had to do, if anything, to get it set up correctly.
How did you figure out the correct paint viscosity? Was it a lot of trial and error, or is there much information with the products?
How much paint did you need to purchase?
Thanks,

Welcome to the Forum! I like the 'Stance, Wheels & Tires' - front and back.
What are you running there - Offsets and such? They look like early LT alloy wheels.
Steering Fun? Rub much?

Great Paint - looking forward to more info and closeups, wear and lasting info.

Those mirrors are chevy silverado tow mirrors, I don't think it's a kit or anything, just find them and cut em up to fit.

That's all Sector 7 classified information but our spies have managed to ferret out the details.
Silverado mirrors & modified JK bumpers. You find the using that box at the top of the page.

Bummer... thought we would hear back. Still time, tho', before we send out the Goon Killer Onslaught ( think... those big flying spinning disasters from Battleship ).

Seriously...!!

Yeah, I did a lift on mine and the stance isn't right. The front tires I choose are too small too (235s). They are fine for now, but long term I think i need at least 285s but do I need to add spacers? Different wheels? both???

What model was the front jeep bumper? I am leaning towards that style as well.
