  1. What is the usage of this Jeep you are restoring, would this be for OFF ROAD, ON ROAD or BOTH, the reason I am asking is because depending on that you need to choose the tyres, may be you also need to do some suspension works apart from regular overhauling. Color scheme is completely dependent on the client you have however make sure if there is any body work as per the above said purpose is done before the JEEP enters paint booth. Kindly remove the glass frame before painting that saves labor of cleaning it later. All the best for your project. Bala aka JEEP MONK
