Worked on my Cherokee for 2 days this weekend and I still have a little left. Let me know what you think.

Just curious, It appears that it was sprayed on judging from the fan with the overspray. If so, did you use an airless? What size tip did you use? Look REALLY nice!!!

Actually I used the provided rollers and a paint brush. All of the black was done with a brush. The fan is actually red, but is dirty and worn.

Thanks alot guys. I'm about finished with it now. I just have 1 more coat of black to go around the windows. I ended up using about 1.5 gallons Orange and 1/2 gallon black.

Way Cool! I plan to do mine in a month or two once I get all the wood grain off(what a pain). Any tips you can share are appreciated.

Looks great! I've been debating the Durabak idea for a while, and between you and porkchop, I think I'm sold!
Hey, maybe since so many of us are wanting to use Durabak they'll give us an FSJ discount!

Not that this may matter to any of you, but I wanted my Durabak'd my center console, I wanted it to have less of the "grippy" texture, so I carefully applied it with a brush. Afraid that it would fade the way my floor did, I also put a nice coating of good ol' Armor All over everything once it dried. It's still nice and shiney, and I've been VERY happy with how it turned out. You guys doing this on your exteriors may want to consider squirting a little of that on there too.
