    Default A new style for my jeep...

    I am considering getting the green Raingler netting. Once we get settled in in Texas and buy our house, I will be painting my jeep that desert tan color like the HMMWVs. I am going to to try to get the same kind of paint and I think that the milspec netting will look much better with that color than what I currently have.

    I am going to talk it over with the 6 and see what she says, but I am for it.

    Check with the supply unit and find out how they get rid of their paint that is past shelf life. We used to be able to buy it cheap thru DRMO counter sales. $5.00 a gl.

    This is probably the stuff I will go with..

    and ordered a quart of the NON-2-part paint- same color, but I didnt want the 4 hour pot-life the hardened paint had (so I had some spare for use later)

    I called them, fearing they might be a Mil contractor who wouldn't want some schmuck from AZ who wanted only 32 oz of paint. Totally impressed- they shipped it out quick, took my credit card, and UPS brought it a week later.

    The 2-part epoxy is a LOT tougher, I'm sure, but I went with the single component, water dispersable polyurethane coating. They are the same price.

    I have yet to find an adequate place to paint it (I have the HVLP paint-gun, but no compressor)- but I have sanded it all down, and covered the Jeep in Multi-Color(tm) Self Etching Primer, so its ALL OD green now, but much lighter than what it'll end up.

    Don't know, but Eddie from Off Road Concepts is giving away netting in the contest he is running and you may be able to win the netting for the JK.
