De-Crome an overland

I have a white overland. My thought is to go black wheels, black grill, black door handles, black side mirrors...and possibly the chrome stripe down the side.

Is this possible? I played with it in adobe photo shop and i like the look.

Re: De-Crome an overland

You should do it, black on white looks good.

Here's another picture of it:

So i need to change the grill, door handles and mirrors. Mirrors seem easy not sure about the door handles or grill. And then what do i do with the chrome strip down the sides

That pic looks sooo clean!!!

fishing line to pull chrome strips off the side. If you are careful enough, you'll be able to re-use them if you decide to down the road.

Grill and mirrors are easy enough. The door handles I'm not sure about taking them apart. I'm pretty sure that will be the toughest part and will more than likely have to pull the interior door skin.

You could do the spasti dip spray to see if you like it first. it just peels back off and no trace left behind. Prep work includes wiping off with soap/water before you spray 3 to 4 coats. It won;t last forever, but at least you can test the look on your own vehicle first.

Re: De-Crome an overland

Thank you both so much for the help. The door handles look to be a bit scary so maybe scratch that off the list.

Re: De-Crome an overland

You dont want to over do it though as it sounds like you want to do a lot of black. I would recommend doing a few things in black similar to what Jeep is going to do with the Altitude model (or whichever version that white one is pictured above). Then do the rest maybe body colored. Its just personal opinion, but I cant imagine a white Overland looking good with black door handles or mirrors.

So I say go with body colored mirrors and door handles, black or dark grey grill and wheels as well as rear brow if you want. Basically, the way Jeep has the Altitude version setup is PERFECT IMO!

Good advice. You don't want your JGC to look like a Zebra.
