Initial Color: Kubota Orange

After one of the nicest April, May and June I think I’ve ever experienced, our summer highs in the 90s have finally arrived. However, work goes on when it can.

We have settled on a temporary color, Kubota Orange. It’s the rattle can color that we think looked the best. I don’t want to do a nicer paint job just yet, because I don’t want to take the time right now to get the body and front clip completely smooth (in case I want to do the mounts differently). Instead, I want to get the jeep running, so that I can test the anchor points to make sure they hold like I hope they will and that the front clip doesn’t rub on the body.

Yesterday I made four of the six front clip mounts, with the final ones to be made today. Here’s the orange on the fender (only two coats). It’s a little darker in person.

    I had a CJ-3B that was almost the same color. I thought it looked good and only a few people asked me if I was from Tennessee.

    The green isn’t working for me, especially given the frame patches and other welds by the prev owner. Black will hide more.

    The orange is short term (most likely). I have a friend who can do a much better and creative paint job once we can set it up.
