15 JGC altitude black out process/opinions

So just like a lot of other people in this forum, I am trying to black out my 2015 Jeep grand Cherokee altitude. So far, I tinted the front windows, vinal wrapped the chrome around the windows, and switched out the grill inserts. I have plans to tent my headlights, order and switch out the lug nuts with the gorilla ones, and to either paint or cover my calipers. I'm looking for suggestions on what is better for the calipers. Also I am wondering about putting a tint visor across the top of the windshield and wanted to know if anybody has seen this done or has done this and if it looks good or not? Of course I would rather just tint the whole windshield but that's not the best idea legally or for safety. Also I have seen several people mention blacking out their tail pipes, and I was wondering the best way to do that? Lastly I was wondering if anyone has done any interior modifications on this vehicle, for example, I was thinking about vinyl wrapping the silver interior with carbon fiber. Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I'll provide some input on things I have personally done before.

For the calipers, I am going to suggest painting them...covers look cheesy and paint (if done right) will last a LONG time.

The tailpipes can very easily be painted as well, use Krylon BBQ paint. All you need to do is scuff/clean the metal, and spray it on, it's got a nice semi-gloss look to it vs other BBQ paints out there.

For the calipers, DO THE PAINT..... I was debating on this for the longest time. I seriously did it in about 2-3 hours.... go to the part store and get some caliper paint for about 20-30 bucks and just go at it.... don't get the spray kind though. Get the kind you use a brush for!

I'm in the process of finishing my blackout with my tail lights. I ordered some of the rtint precut strips for my tail and headlights. We will see how that goes!IMG_20161113_000849.jpg

(I know you can't see the calipers, but this is the only photo I have right now. I will post a picture of them later)
(I also have the gorilla lugs)

I did the windshield tint strip on both our jeeps, also painted the calipers on both.
