Re: Color match complete

Thanks guys !
I agree I don't like the amber bulbs when they're off however I do like them when they're lit. does anyone know if those "chrome" bulbs light up orange?
as for the mirrors, I don't like the look of white mirrors with the pillars & Windows so dark.
And as for anything else ,I don't know,I have been bitten really hard by the SRT bug....

Re: Color match complete

OK, well rims aren't back on yet, a bad ball joint shredded one tire, which I just got, but I failed to notice a 2nd was to far gone as well so it's on the way.

I decided to use nightshades to tint my turn bulbs. they blend better when off ,and still glow orange
pardon the dirty pics

Re: Color match complete

Those headlights set it off! I don't think that you need to do the side mirrors.. Keep them black.

Glad to see you got rid of the amber.. Cant stand the way it looks. Your idea to nightshade the bulbs was very clever. I usually just buy silverstar bulbs since they look crystal clear off and are super bright when blinking.

I really like the way the headlights came out man! If you don't mind me asking did you seperate. And do them yourself? If so how hard was it? I've done a bunch on Hondas but never a jeep

Thanx josh

Re: Color match complete

Yes,I did it myself & it was a pain.
If you,or anyone , is planning to do them white like I did, i suggest getting a new set and doing those. My lenses looked totally clear when they were still chrome, but the white shows every little scratch. I wet sanded them with 800,1000,2000, then compounded them,& they aren't perfect. new would end up that much better, and you can still drive it while you're working on it.
A word of warning to anyone doing this in/ with a light color , be careful when resealing them! the sealant was so sticky I had to use a razor blade to hold it down and get my fingers off. Well I missed a little "stringy" couldn't see it ............ until I heated it back up then I had to re open it and do it all over. P.I.T.A!!!!!

Re: Color match complete

Is the chrome trim painted with white plastidip? Did you sand it or just strait apply it? I'm debating doing this as well. Same for the running boards and air dam.

Re: Color match complete

the forth pic is the only one with the plasti dip the rest are done with PW1 aka Stone white. the chrome trim on the rear bumper and lower doors were sanded first.as were the rockers. the front lip is from the Mopar body kit ,so it was nice and smooth. if you're going to paint the stock textured one you will need to sand it.
