Re: MY12 MG Overland CRD...clean and dirty

Just opened the bonnet (hood for some of you.....hehe) to check on something as I'm due for a service very soon and to top up my windscreen washer.
Shows that I haven't opened it for a few weeks....



Will be hitting it today with the high pressure cleaner methinks..

Whenever we have been off road it seems to rain, so no dust for me yet.

Amazing to think that it was originally built as a movie set too..
As in, "The Man From Snowy River"? If so, that's beyond awesome!

And awesome ride, BTW.

Re: MY12 MG Overland CRD...clean and dirty

Decided to experiment with some plasti-dip.
I will still paint the chrome pieces body colour, but in the meantime...

Rear brow



Front grill
Before




And after..



Plasti dip isn't 100% dry so it looks a little patchy. It's rather cold here ATM, doesn't help with the drying process.

That grill does look pretty sick. Nice work.

Re: MY12 MG Overland CRD...clean and dirty

OK, so it's school holidays here ATM so I thought I'd have a day off and get my 12yo off the Xbox.
My assistant..



All masked up..



End result..



He stayed with me most of the way through it, had to help him a couple of times to re-focus.
In the end he reckons it looks awesome (as do I) and he had a lot of fun too.

Re: MY12 MG Overland CRD...clean and dirty

Wheels look great . What paint did you use?

I was going to do my rims in gloss 3m wrap.

What's next? The lower chrome air damn?

Re: MY12 MG Overland CRD...clean and dirty

Next I'm thinking of painting the chrome side mouldings in body colour and painting the Grand Cherokee lettering black before I clear coat them and then re-fit them to the car. If that works out then I'll strip off the plasti-dip and body colour the grill and rear brow.
Then the chrome window trims, front lower airdam and rear step pieces will be blacked out.

I used Sikkens paint in Jeep Brilliant Black colour.
