ever since I saw the black restored honcho that has been for sale all over the web for a long time, I wanted a spare tire carrier like they devised,....

I knew whether I ran chrome or white OEM wagon rims
that I wanted the spare to be white,....

this is the beginning of getting the spare rim ready,....

a really ruff rim from Kenny at WATSON AND SONS JEEP SALVAGE
in pinetown NC,....a great place to find FSJ and all Jeep parts,....

media blasted and primed with RUSTOLEUM self etching primer

I really love their products,....

I used their garage floor epoxy at home and at the shop on a 40x40 floor

great stuff, now they have a product that is even better "rock solid"

I have now completed a set of 5 white OEM wagon rims

and a set of 5 factory chrome OEM wagon rims

( got them from a great IFSJA member from Canada,...LEVELHEAD, I believe)

very nice honest cool dude...

....I had used Eastwood "tank tone" in the past,

but,...decided to use a gloss grey

the metallic silver tends to fail sometimes,...

I have done several vehicles over time,...

this is the first time that I got to have a rolling chassis,

onto which we placed all other mechanical parts,....

like a new 360,....

but fate had a different plan for the powerplant,... ( fate and some knuckle heads involved with motor build/install )

Looks great Dave..... I can't believe that spare rim looks so good after. Did you pin stripe it?

A friend who just retired from the national guard
copied the tired rear bumper

made from 1/4 and 1/2 inch steel

HEAVY HEAVY HEAVY.......feels like it weighs 300 lbs,...not sure.

primed with self etch, then filler primer

then trusty hi-performance rustoleum top coat

it will get anti skid adhesive strips, cut to shape,...
