They recommend a clear coat but even if it didn't require one I would add it just for protection.

I've been wanting to paint my TJ07 as well since Silver is bland to me. There was no need to sand anything correct? You just put the primer/base/clear coating over the original? Subbed so I can steal your ideas! wink.gif

I used a scotch brite pad to rough up the case and used a degreaser to get good adhesion fro the primer.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll be keeping an eye on your progress and see what I can do to my TJ07 during the summer.

Base coat is going on now, I was a little worried at first as it looked purple rather than blue but as another coat went on it is turning blue.

Mate the only time you need to use degreaser is if a plastic has absorbed a containment i.e amourald/silcon based .

The only thing you need to clean a surface before painting is prep wash, wax and grease remover. It has a few names but what it is hydro carbons. It leaves no residue and evaporates any surface contaminates.

Ask any professional painter, they are going to tell you the same thing. When you spray 2pacs you use a thinner which is your hydro carbons again which thins the pains but evaporates.

O and another thing use white clean cotton rags, and only whip one way, across your surface never whipe back because all you do is spread surface contaminants back over.

Its does the same as contact cleaner/electrical cleaner,

The only other thing that is needed is a tack rag for quick wipe over to remove any dust particles that have landed on your paint surface just as your about to paint.
