tell me about it. After seeing the scratches in my Jeep, I am really wondering if I should even bother repainting it!!! But, with such a restored beauty in hands, maybe SYJ can but another Jeep & scratch her all up

Default Red Black Classic

Jay,
One of the most desirables of machines that i've seen on the net.

The colour goes very well with the overall job and attention to detail is commendable. I can almost imagine the envious glances of many whenever you must be taking it out in town. My wishes for all your future drives...

Yeah take it to malls and climb the parking slots in Low.

Jeeps are restored so that they can be taken off road again. And not the other way.

Yes, prioritywise off road comes first, the shine later...

OT:
Actually i'm working on a project to make a system to prevent scratches. Something like a disposable car bra, but much much much cheaper.
Let's see...

Why?? In the 5 years I have owned the Classic, I have treasured the scratches. Scratches lend character

Very clean and neat job. The rebuild started a year ago, When did it complete?

More details please.

It's more to make it easier to clean the mud off the car then to prevent the scratches. The thin cellophane will anyways get penetrated by the thorns. However, once the OTR has been done and it's time to clean the muck splatters, that's when this will work. Just peel away.
Anyways, this is still in the thought process, too far away from reality as yet...

Nice way of putting it... but to each, his own. If SYJ doesnt want to scratch it all up, its his own...

Me too... but not 5 years, only a few months.

Tejas, I too have had the same idea, but a different material. I will mail you directly and see the feasibility of it.
