Ah Steve! TJ? I've got a 2003 TJ, Son has a YJ stretch with an 6L LQ4 in it. Been a great Father/Son project for sure. Got a lift in the shop... I never get in there anymore, but it seems everyone else does.

Okay, so I don't want difficult so water based is out. Seems I'm leaning Oil with Lacquer like Rebel did. So, I'll hit owl and look at their maple or birch and get a few test pieces. Suspect gotta actually work with it to really understand. Very helpful thread. Thank you all very much. I'm still a couple weeks off from cutting lumber, so going to experiment between now and then.

Steve, for your amusement, my kid's most recent jeep pic (few weeks ago). It's in the shop as we speak for a steering upgrade (sorry for off topic).

Even for what I'm doing, I don't need the volume of what I used to spray the car.

Steve, I get what you are saying. Do you also spray the primer? I have to assume so. I don't think I can use a stain and a primer right? Sorry if these questions seem naive, I've never done this before. However, if you need help building your jeep or maybe building your computer... I'm your guy.

Thanks again.
You spray light coats till you achieve the look your after, This case I can't remember if I use Sher-wood T77 Pre-cat or Polyurethane. I use harbor freight $30 spray guns.I sold both the sherwin williams and Sharpe guns because I was satisfied with the cheap gun results

So not an air brush sprayer. Do you think that an air brush sprayer can be used? It seems the coats are light. If I can't use an air brush sprayer, I have to get into the shop for the heat. That's going to be a task with all the cars lined up. It's winter here and spraying in the house with a HVLP is probably not going to go well.

Usually you can heat the shop, turn heater etc off,spray ,open door till fumes are gone and then shut the door again. Misting cars in garage optional

Yeah, my issue is grease and oil. We're talking 19-21 ish year old men/boys. I don't want to take wood in there if I don't have to. However, what you said was what I was thinking... with a lot of tarps. I have a workroom in the basement. I can cover tools, vents and put blankets under the door to prevent mist. However, with hvlp, I don't think that's an option. With an air brush, I think it's controlled enough. Once again, gotta experiment.

No not TJ, it's a CJ. Mine is a 1975 CJ-5.

If it were me on your project I would go to Sherwin Williams and order some production lacquer. It will thin with lacquer thinner. For a primer if they have it there I would recommend Bushwacker white lacquer primer. They could tint it for you to a dark gray. This primer fills quick and sands well.

Zip walls are a good investment, just for what you said as well:

Damn Steve should have known. Short back, round headlights. I don't know the jeep types as well as the kid does.

I'm going to experiment with paint systems. I have enough information to be dangerous. I'll post again when I'm moving forward. Thank you all for the advice!
