You will definitely need a rivet gun and some plastic rivets to replace the side skirt rivets in the wheel wells. You'll see what i mean when you go to peel back the fender liners.
I know what you're talking about. I didn't bother putting rivets back in because it had the one on top so I just tucked it back in and it stays there just fine for me.

I go camping/off roading every now and again, I feel like plasti-dip would not hold up. But it was a thought.

Since I was too lazy to wake up at a decent hour and get up there you'll have to come down to the beach next week and we can do the mod on mine. Plus I've got matte clear

Re: 4.7L Punch List Today!!

-Pinch weld mod, CHECK.
-Spray misc. undercarriage parts with bed liner spray, CHECK.
-Paint calibers and spacers with high temp spray, CHECK.
-Spray Rubicon rims and mount, CHECK.

This took up must the afternoon and into the night. Wheels came out a little glossier than i anticipated but never the less look amazing! Everything went smooth and came out great! Thanks to OBXjeep for coming up and helping out. You da bomb big cuz!


--P.S. this computer is not letting me rotate or caption the pictures I posted for whatever reason. Just cover your left eye and tilt your head to the left, should be pretty clear whats happening in the picture. lol. As I said this went well into the night and I couldn't get a good picture of the improved WK, so you guys will have to wait till tomorrow when I can post up some more pics. (Try not to lose any sleep over it). Here is how the project took place, Enjoy.

Pinch-weld mod:
--Remove tire...
1. Cut out plastic around the pinch mod.
2. I used a sawzaw to make cuts into the pinch weld about every inch so it would be easy to bend.
3. Bent pinch weld tabs over with pliers as far as I could so hammer time would be a little easier.
4. Hammer time! Beat the tabs with a decent size mallet.
5. Took a grinder over tabs to ensure there would be no rough or sharp edges.
6. Screwed loose plastic back into metal.
7. Spray exposed metal with truck bed liner spray.
-Done!! Did all these steps to both driver and passenger side.
--I also removed the non threaded portion of the screw that hangs above/behind the tire and smoothed over with grinder.

Rubicon Rims:
1. Clean both sides with soap and water; let dry.
2. Sand with a light sand paper.
3. Dust off wheel and put playing cards between the tire/rim to minimize overspray. (Hat off to whoever got bored when they were playing solitare on their tire. This method of masking off a rim kicks ass).
4. Applied 3 coats black duplicolor wheel paint.
5. Applied 2 coats clear duplicolor wheel paint.
6. Mount onto Jeep.
--I decided to leave the center "Jeep" cap alloy as well as the lug nuts. I think it made the black rim pop and I have not seen anyone else with theirs like that. (No offense if yours are, I just have not SEEN anyone else's like that).

OBXjeep did the painting, thanks alot for coming up today big cuz! I will come down to do the pinch weld mod with you if ya need a hand.

Re: 4.7L Punch List Today!!

Looks great! Love the un-painted center cap look...

I've actually got the opposite set up...painted caps and lugs, unpainted rims.

Thanks. I was going to go all black but decided to try the unpainted cap and nuts first. Came out very clean.

Re: 4.7L Punch List Today!!

Just put air in the tires and ran down the highway. Everything runs smooth and no rubbing when I turn anymore.
