Re: What do you think?

This is done by a professional body shop. And right now I am leaning towards the black and getting the tails tinted. I was told to stay away from painting all the plastic trim due to adhesion problems, and not only that its big $$$$! Thanks for all the quick feedback everyone! Keep it coming.

Re: What do you think?

I think those black pieces, especially the wheels look terrible. Sorry to be negative but you asked for opinions.

On your color jeep I would color match the front grille, back piece, side mirrors and door handles. So no chrome, all color matched. I think it takes draws to much attention to the black pieces how it is now. If you color match everything, yours eyes will focus back on the entire vehicle and the black rims.

2 questions, are you rims powder coated or did you do the swap with that perma chrome company, meaning you rims would be black chrome.

What did the paint shop charge you to black out the rear and front pieces that were chrome? I'm looking at having my front grille done. But I'm having trouble finding a shop that will do it.

Your ride looks great whichever way you go, I would look twice if I saw it going down the road.

Re: What do you think?

Thanks for the feedback Juan. I got my rims powder coated and the the body shop is doing me a favor so I'm not sure what the charge is. But when I get it back I will ask what it would be and let you know.
