Snail's pace mods on my '14 JGC

Watching all you guys, learning so much and getting great mod ideas although I'm moving at snails pace.. LOL.. Honeycomb grille and lowering kit next couple of weeks.. So far HID's, wheels, interior LED's, smoked tail lights and de-chromed bezels and emblems then de-badged..

Re: Snail's pace mods on my '14 JGC

Yes Sir..It was a choice of plasti dip (less permament) or Paint (more permanent). I went with the more permanent option. I'll get you more exact info on the procedure they used when I take the truck back in for the Honeycomb grille and calipers. If I recall correctly (don't quote me), he said something about using sand paper on the chrome and then some kind of primer before they painted it (Including the chrome bezel on the tail lights).

You tinted the tails but left the bottom reflectors red? you should get them tinted to match.

Re: Snail's pace mods on my '14 JGC

Couldn't agree more.. Lesson learned when picking up your car at night- Do a thorough walk around.. Car is going back in for some more mods next weekend and they'll surely be reminded

Re: Snail's pace mods on my '14 JGC

Thx bro.. The lights are much better at night. Clean, focused, white light (6000k) without the blinding glare that messes with oncoming traffic. The cell phone pic doesn't do them justice (hence the scattered effect in the picture)
