I know I need to update the build thread on the "WildTurkey" project, but here's what I did today:

A few "before" pics, includies some shots of primer:







A few "after" pics:





The color is 1969-1979 AMC Javelin "Big Bad Orange."

Still have to paint the doors, windshield, and PSC crusher corners, but I'll do that later.

Got a few bugs in the paint and noticed some more bodywork (especially on the hood) that needs to be done, but I'm not really worried about it. All those problems will go away once I bash it into a rock or two anyway!:eek:

Also not worried about the dents in tub...those will be covered by Crusher Corners and Rocker Knockers!

That's assume! I just got my first jeep ever 3 weeks ago and its a scrambler (Red). One of the first things my wife says to me when she See's it is " You should paint it ORANGE, that's a fun color". Great post.

Hey John! I know I have them! Mike is coming up @ the end of the month for a fishing trip so I'll send them back with him. Mike. I'm really not looking hard yet but I'll know it when it comes along. They usually find me.:D
