There is a difference between small scratches that are to rough something up and a pretty radical texture with divets everywhere.

I am calling my guy on Friday...he has already painted a similar piece, and is kicking it's ass all week to try and get it to fail. Keep your fingers crossed

Re: Painted Lower Trim

Black Ops: I hope you will also give some thought to making a plain (without logo) fiberglass or carbon fiber replacement for the liftgate chrome strip. I'd be the first to order one, and I believe many others would be interested as well!

Re: Painted Lower Trim

I can not do a rear latch cover with no logo it would stick out too far and it's not possible to make all the clips on the backside for a replacement piece as tiny composite clips would get brittle over time. In order to do a full replacement with no logo you would have to disassemble the entire tailgate from the inside to get the entire lift gate assembly off. That's the easy part the hard part would be getting the chrome piece off the black part. I'll be honest I tried and it's a tall task not many would be happy trying to do and that's if they could even do it without breaking something LOL.

The other kicker is the little button on that part would not be of any use if I built up a cover to hide the letters so I'm kinda stuck doing the JEEP logo as I don't want anyone losing any kind of functionality or breaking things on a new truck. I have done my research in depth to make a part so everyone will be happy. I am attaching a pic of a half cover with opposing weave direction on letters to show a new technique.

I'm tossing around ideas and will be testing a few methods that have never been done before like making color matched Carbon raise letters to body color on black carbon. That's right I will be bringing colors back for the 2011-2012's only!!

I am also doing all vacuum infused parts for the 2011-2012 stuff only which is a lot more costly but yields the best possible part money can buy!! We are talking Lambo. and Ferrari quality!!!

Here is the pic I mentioned with the carbon weave in opposing directions on a Vacuum infused part. Notice how straight the weave is that's what you get with infusion!! Also these parts will weigh grams vs pounds they will be super thin like my mirror covers for the 05-10's possibly thinner.

No one in the industry is using these techniques for non-exotic vehicles and this will be the first part from us using these techniques. The best thing of all everything is in The USA.

Re: Painted Lower Trim

I had great results with Eastwood http://www.eastwood.com/?srccode=mn2...Brand-Eastwood for my 70 Olds 442. Many specialty do it yourself products from them. A good paint choice is a flexible durable enamel based primer that sticks and will hold the paint to it. Go to the direct por-15 website http://www.por15.com/por-15-rust-pre...nt/products/1/ Trust me this stuff stciks to anything and will hold topcoats like glue.
