In May 2017, I went to Marble Falls for Wheelers for the Wounded. They bussed in wounded Veterans (and their families) from Ft Hood & San Antonio. There were ~180 volunteer vehicles almost all Jeeps, I was the only Scout.









Good time.

After a year of tripping over the hard top in the garage, I finally got to work on it to get it ready for paint.

Back to work on the hard top:

Pressure washed the old gunk and dirt off the top and prepped for paint.



The interior paint was in surprisingly pretty good shape under the old spray on coating, the cab area had a bit more surface rust, but still in great shape.

Just one bit of rust on the rear quarter window (the top was stored on it's side and the side was near/on the ground)



I used a mini-spot sand blaster to clean up the rust before filling with JB Weld Steel stick epoxy.





A bit of surface rust, but nothing serious, scuffed it up before coating with Duplicolor Rust Barrier.

I drilled out the old 5 bolt flange bolt holes to make them even and welded a washer in to fill the hole.



Oops I deleted pics of the washers welded in and ground flush, so use your imagination.


Used 3M 5200 as seam sealer on the rain gutter. A piece of clean fuel hose works like a champ to smooth the bead.





I used several methods to apply the Duplicolor Rust Barrier. The first coat of Duplicolor Rust Barrier I applied using a small trim roller which came out pretty well, but not the best.

Then I used an undercoating gun to shoot the interior. That came out pretty well, but I didn't like that much large texture for the exterior. (Not an airplane. It's a Texas sized Skeeter)







The Duplicolor Rust Barrier is pretty thick, so I wasn't sure if I could spray it through a regular paint gun. I followed the instructions and thinned it 10% (maximum recommended) and it sprayed very well, just a bit of texture. I probably could have thinned it a bit or messed around with the gun settings more and gotten it a little bit smoother, but I figured the texture will hide some of the blemishes. I used a Harbor Freight HVLP gun with the remote reservoir. https://www.harborfreight.com/64-oz-...kit-62895.html

Then I did a quick wet sand with a scotchbrite pad to knock down the texture a bit. Then loaded up and took it to a friend's house for the color and clear coat.










It looks a bit thin in a few spots, because we ran out of paint. It was Memorial Day Weekend so, I had to wait a few days to get more paint the following week.

Finished up with 3 more coats of white base and then shot the clear. Not going to win the Concours d'Elégance anytime soon, but looks pretty good IMHO. Next up: Glass install.

That looks bloody good to me. I wouldn't be too concerned about a couple of rough spots. If it looks too pretty you never want to risk scratching it. It's a Scout, made to use and abuse I say. Awesome job, well done.
