2014 Overland Black Beauty

Well, I've been waiting to post some pictures of my Overland until I got some things done. I'm very happy with it so far. I have tinted the fronts to match the back (they still look a little lighter because of the windshield, which is great for me worrying about a ticket). I had them leave the front plate bracket off. Yesterday I did my first attempt at plasti dipping the wheels. Haven't dipped anything else. I used trash bags to mask the brakes, but i forgot to lay something down on the concrete so I have nice black marks on my driveway now, oh well. Here are some pictures of before and after the tints and dip.

Nice! Are you going to plasti-dip the rest of the crome and black it all out?

Re: 2014 Overland Black Beauty

Nice looking Jeep! Did you use a glossifier on the wheels too or is that matte black? They look great.

I haven't decided yet on the chrome all over. Part of me wants to leave at least some chrome, but I'm not sure what I want to keep and what to leave...

It's just matte right now. I bought the glossifier, but I figured I'd leave it matte for a few days before I decided. I kind of messed up the driver tire but you can't tell in the pic. I have a lot of plasti dip left so I might test the glossy look on that wheel and then just redo it anyways if I don't like it as much as the matte.

But thanks guys!

Re: 2014 Overland Black Beauty

I also don't want to do the window trim yet until i get it sorted out whether they will fix the fact that the drivers side between the front window and back window is off just a bit.
