Thumbs up Custom painted liftgate brow strip

I sent my brow strip in to Scott's Paint and Performance (one of our featured vendors). I asked him to match it body color but leave the Jeep lettering chrome. He did an excellent job, the price was reasonable and he was super-responsive. Big thumbs up to Scott.

It should have come from the factory like this. It looks sooooo much better this way.

Wow! Looks good, I like that the 'valleys' around the letters were painted

Re: Custom painted liftgate brow strip

That looks INCREDIBLE! If I were to do something with the rear brow on my 12 Overland thats exactly what I would do. Not plasti-dip, not "Altitude" black, or anything else. I would body color match it and leave the emblems chrome. Perfect!

If you get a chance please post a picture showing the entire rear of the car.

Last request, can you give us an idea on how much that cost? If you dont want to post it please PM me. I am very interested in this mod.

Thanks,
James

Re: Custom painted liftgate brow strip

looks great! i just plasti-dipped mine the other day just to see how it would look black, but going to have it color matched now that i have had some time looking at it black. but i cant wait to actually get it color matched and then it will be even better. Awesome job!
