Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Love it bro! What did you end up using for the tint? In your opinion do think it would be possible to ad a hint of silver to that somehow and still get some decent light output? I really want to do this but I think the dark tint against silver would be a bit much. Man I wish you were closer. The things you make me want to do to mine! Oh and "Stone Cold Paintwerks". That is off the chain bro!:thumb sup:

Cheers Dave

I used an aerosol tint spray, was branded as "E Tech", but I'm sure it's fairly generic and then cleared it with 2k lacquer.

Martyp's lights are very dark and look great against his silver paint. That said, you have to layer the tint on, so you could go with two light coats to give it a nice smoked look, rather than a dark tint.

Silver might be kind of muddy on lights, I'm not sure though.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Cheers guys.

Next on the list is fitting the new calipers I recently painted. Then paint the wheels gloss black.

Need to replace the rear sway bar bushes too.

Just finished installing my new intake too. Will get some pics up tonight

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

thanks guys for all the suggestions on getting hard water spots out of the glass. i think i have the cleanest glass and mirrors in my jeep than any other on the road right now.

i clay bar'd the inside and outside of all the glass in the jeep and it came out amazing and the mirrors holy crap i think they are the cleanest they have been since brand new.

i took some pics of the before and after and its hard to tell with a picture which is which but i must say they look awesome.


i still need to replace the windshield cause it still has a bunch of pitting in it and a chip from a rock.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Looks soo much better now Aaron, super dark tint FTW!!!

Dave; here is a pic of mine on silver (3 coats of dye'd clear, in other words gloss black). IMO they look fine with the tints etc.
