Have you drivin through any crazy rain at highway speeds yet with the painted rings?

Does anyone know if these chrome items can actually be painted to hold properly?

Going on about 6k miles wih mine and driven through rain snow sleet no issues other than 2 rock chips. It's all about the prep. They should of applied some type of adhesion promoter prior to painting them.

over the eyars Ive had LOTS of chrome painted! If its not done right...it wont hold up. The chrome has to be etched with a kit for it to hold paint GOOD. Any good shop will do that and charge you for it.

Re: HOW TO: 2014 Grill ring removal

Are all the chrome rings the same on each model?

Re: HOW TO: 2014 Grill ring removal

I'm doing plasti dip all the chrome pieces on my jeeps. whith a gloss plasti dip finish I will post pics tomorrow. I think it's the best way to go about it. the cost is no more then 100$ and it looks fairly good In my own opinion.

Re: HOW TO: 2014 Grill ring removal

scotts paint(ur50slo@aol.com) will paint all your chrome rings for about $100 and you don't get that sticky finish that lint sticks too like with plastidip. Plus its gloss black and shiny like the paint.

Re: HOW TO: 2014 Grill ring removal

If Altitude models are on the ground does anyone know if they too have rings in the grille or are they solid? It would be nice if they were sold seperate.
