I dunno if this belongs here. It's about painting and painting means modifying so i'm modifying my cherokee's paint and i guess that classifies as being under cherokee modified forum. Ok i talk too much. Anyways, when you strapped for cash or makin the woman happy with diamonds (and bacon:D) and paint your cherokee with a rattle can or other intensive manual labor method, do you have to put a clearcoat on to wax it, or can you wax directly on the last coat of, say Forrest Green Gloss paint?

I'm clueless when it comes to painting vehicles and maintaining that new paint job.

Depends on the paint. If you use a Enamal based paint no clear needed. Can be waxed after 30 days cure time.

No not painting the rig...yet. My tj looked just like the xj and four years later it looked like a hundred cats were sharpening their claws on it. The paint was terrible from all that off roading. I'm just gathering some info for down the road when i do decide to paint it OD green.
