Jeep Body Work & Paint For a Cool Ride in SWFL

by | Dec 13, 2012 | Bedliner

Are you looking to trick out your current Jeep or have plans in the future to do so?

Jeep 4×4 is one of the most badass of its kind made in the USA since 1941. All you need to own one is to check out our shop and pick the one you fancy.

Take a peek at two pretty cool Jeeps that we tricked out at our Shop. 

Red 1983 CJ-7 Body Work & Paint 

The Red Jeep 1983 is a CJ-7 from California that happens to be owned by Jamie Russo. It was a special father-daughter project, and we were delighted to be involved. 

John Russo and his daughter Jamie worked on this since she was 14 years old. Growing up in a Body Shop Environment has its benefits. Seeing all the cool cars and trucks come rolling into the shop easily catches young people’s attention. Not to forget living next to the old-timer car restoration veterans who never grow up.

Body Work & Paint  

We stripped this baby down to bare metal with zero rust exposed. Simply love the California cars for being durable and mostly rust free. 

We gave it many coats of Epoxy Primer and urethane Primer. 

Then we started the block sanding and straightening out the sheet metal. I must say this is not bad for My Daughter. Her cousin Jordan & Kai did all the wet sanding, both being 15 years old.

Picking a color to paint with when you are a kid and walk into the paint mixing room could be a difficult task. With a complete House of Kolor Mixing bank at your disposal, we went from Lemon Ice to Tangerine, and finally, Candy Apple Red was the final decision. It requires a cinder red ground coat then apple Kandy the high-grade urethane flow clear by House of Kolor.

As you can see below, it came out very nicely.

  • We added Reflex Bedliner to the inside of of the Jeep Floor
  • We applied spray-on bedliner to the roll bar
  • We installed a Weber carburetor, new radiator, lights, and other goodies  

1986 Jeep Body Work & Paint  

Below is the photo of 1968 Jeep. We restored for a John Gordon, a good friend of ours. When this came in, it had no rust and was just in need of some love and updating.

We did the bodywork and paint along with a spray-on bedliner on the bed floors, new seats, and roll bar. We used his company colors for the indigo blue.
