Black Vinyl-ing a WJ?

So I had an Idea,

I have a silverstone WJ, and I had an idea that i think would look pretty neat,

Silverstone WJ with:

Vinyl Black roof, Black lower front grill, Black taillights, Black foglights and headlights (already done! ), black SRT reps or similar black rims

What do you guys think? Could a silverstone WJ pull it off and not look like crap?

If I do get vinyl it will be between the two water channels on the roof (I did roofrack delete) so there will be a clear cutoff point for the vinyl and it won't have any goofy lines. What do you guys think?

Also if I get it vinyl-ed, should I also do the part where the 3rd brake light is, or let that part be?

Re: Black Vinyl-ing a WJ?

I love the idea. I think the blacked out look would go with any color...

Re: Black Vinyl-ing a WJ?

You guys think I should do it? It's going to end up costing me around $450 but its warranteed for 2 years, and after I do that I'll put my roof-rack back on so you don't see the transition from silverstone>black so well and so it blends nicer.

i'm still a bit iffy about the lower grill on my WJ .. thats a maybe at this point in time.

I'm excited, hopefully getting a new job in my time off from school, hooray!

Ooh sick! Yeah exactly that except a gloss black roof with roofrack to match! Hell, If I have the time I may even pick up some bondo and sand and perfect the roofrack before I put it back on.

What do you guys think? Nice or rice?

Re: Black Vinyl-ing a WJ?

Sounds good man.

Defintely do the top of the tailgate where the 3rd brake light is as it'd look strange not done IMO.
