Once chopped, sanded, and papered, we shot the paint. Shane Dalquist from Shadow Coatings volunteered to help get our green Jeep even greener. Choosing the color was a major battle in this buildup since Jeeps have been every color under the sun. We were very close to painting it pink like the Surrey Jeep in UAJK Part 1 (Aug. '07), but we just didn't feel manly enough to drive a pink Jeep so we settled on Army Green. And not just any olive drab; this is the same color paint used when restoring World War II Jeeps. We got it straight from Rapco Parts Company, where they sell everything you need to restore a classic Jeep.
