Cool, I wondered if vinyl would stick to those!!

Did you paint your covers (guessing not as that looks a PITA) back cos mine are just unfinished metal.

I'm fairly sure the ones on mine aren't metal at all...they look like a beefy plastic. I just scrubbed that one cover down really well with a degreaser, rinsed, then rubbing alcohol, and then applied the decal. It's been there for almost a year now I think. If it's made it through the heat of the engine and the heat of the summer, I think it'll survive. No problems so far!

Re: Latest detailing....PIC WHORING AGAIN

okay. thanks for the Popsicle stick idea. I'll try that.

I have a friend that works for a detail shop so it's pretty hard to pass up. Exterior detail: $75 Interior detail: another $25.

Tips for the engine bay? I know you personally use simple green. do you just spray it on and let it soak and then spray it off?

Ive neglected the engine bay for a while so I've decided that I will spend my next few weeks fixing it up.

Re: Latest detailing....PIC WHORING AGAIN

Damn Tony, beautiful work as always! I think its time I break down and buy a polisher and some of that blackfire, mine looks good but nowhere near yours. And here I used to think I was crazy for keeping the engine bay on my ZJ so clean, but then I found you guys!

Oh, and don't listen to Dave, the superchips badge is just fine where it is!

I've had very good luck with lightly spraying everything down with water, then spraying it with simple green and brushing with one of these:
http://www.detailedimage.com/DI-Brus.../Full-Size-S1/. Then rinse and repeat as needed until clean before using any dressings. That brush has super-flexible soft bristles, so it gets in stupid-tight places, like between the battery and the power distribution box for instance. It'll get down in between hoses, etc and loosen up grime if the Simple Green has sat long enough. Usually, 5-10 minutes is all it takes.

You're welcome...

...and MartyP probably owns that title. I'm bad, but Marty's in another class of insanity. I'm padded room, he's more Hannibal Lecter.

Forgot to say earlier, but this truck reminds me of Hannes' WJ, I loved that Jeep.
this menzerana my.local Detailer uses this on my Subaru and its some higher class items

Re: Latest detailing....PIC WHORING AGAIN

What's better than a freshly detailed Jeep? Two freshly detailed Jeeps. Here are a few quick iphone shots of my wife's 06 Anniversary Edition. That one reflection shot is picking up a Jeep flag I have mounted on the inside of my garage door:
