110 Painting and Galvanizing

Finally got tired of colour and lousy military paint job on my 110 so spent the latter half of the summer and early fall pressure washing, sanding, stripping, pressure washing, sanding and on and on and on. Not a perfect finish but got it to a point I was happy with (and anything was an improvement). Pulled off all the cappings and had them galvanized along with anything else I could get ready including the three doors frames. Had some paint mixed up and rollered it on. Not show quality but easily a 10 foot paint job and it has gotten good reviews, so it's all good.

You will miss the nuanced brush strokes of NATO green loveingly applied by some of Europe's best artists. The depth, texture and patina never fails to elicit rave reviews from art critics in the finest of Home Depot parking lots. Like "did you paint your Jeep with a paint brush?" Perish the thought!

For the longest time I kinda liked the mil paint job. Then it started to lift and peel and flake off. What really put me over the edge was one summer day I was stopped at a traffic light. Two teen girls were at the bus stop. Nice liking girls too. They keep looking over at the 110 and giggling and whispering back and forth. So I'm thinking they are really digging this thing. Light turns green and as I start to drive off I hear them yell in unison, "YOUR TRUCK IS FUCKING UGLY!!!" Little bitches.

Figured it was time for paint.

Funny story. At least they didn't say your Jeep was ugly.
