That is plain old, brush on rustoleum. Satin black. You can't see any brush marks. I decided to use this instead of powder coat or pors and epoxy frame paint because it's the easy to repair if it gets scratched. Just scuff it up slap on more paint and its good to go.

Thanks for the information.  How did you clean the frame ?  What for primer did you use on the frame before you painted it ?    I am going to do a frame for my CJ -7.   that is why I am asking these questions.   Thanks again.

I steam cleaned it first, than used a wire wheel on a hand held grinder. Sand blasted the joints, seams and hard too get too spots. Wiped it down with metal prep than used a self etching primer than paint.

Well no pics yet , but the rolling chassis is only a couple wires away from starting and driving.Once I know everything works The tub will be going on for final mock up and body work. Than the tub will be taken off again and get painted.

Hi Jenn,

That CJ2A is looking good.  Where did you get all of your parts for it?  I have a 1946 CJ2A. I bought it in Feb. 2013 and havn't done anything to it yet. Just finished a frame off on my 1985 CJ-7 in July.   Thanks, Mark
