Plasti dipped

The dip off and sell the rims.
Got my eye on some other 20's
You could also get your stock ones powder coated
For roughly around $300/ wheel

Re: Introduce Yourself

MY2014SRT,

Thanks - I worry that after such a long wait I might end up not liking the vehicle when I eventually get it!

Driving my mate's SRT is what got me thinking about buying a Jeep. Was surprised by the quality, fittings, and how well the vehicle drove. V8 power and sound was fantastic but the 22 l/100km average fuel consumption was scary! Ended up getting the 3.6 V6 as I could not justify getting the 5.7 Hemi.

For an SRT your wait was not that bad (although the 4 weeks between inspection and boat loading seems a bit long?) . I understand that a SRT is now almost a 12 month wait?

Re: Introduce Yourself

Picked up my car today. Photo of it when I picked it up, straight to tinting this afternoon and Tow Bar, Brake controller and Side steps are at home ready to install.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Congrats.

Where did you get it tinted and how much? I need to do the same when I find the time.

Re: Introduce Yourself

The bonnet protector gives your car a nice moustache look. I like it.

Re: Introduce Yourself

I was thinking of making a few pieces including new wheels all in black. Kind of stormtrooper look but because it is the daily I am also thinking I should just leave it as it.
