What about your Chrome Mirrors?
I got them to put some gloss black vinyl over them to hide the very bad condition of them - the chrome mirrors wouldn't look right anyway.

I do like the chrome on the grille but thats about as far as I would want to go with it.

Thanks Dylan!

Good eye bro! I forgot to mention about them in the post. They removed many parts like that to wrap them and I noticed they didn't those bits fitted correctly at the bottom - its the same on both sides. I'll take them out and re-fit them this weekend.

After today the vinyl will be set like concrete to the paint, no way will this stuff just begin to peel off.

Re: Gonna get my baby booked in...

How is this stuff as far as durability? I seen trucks all the time with whole truck graphics and they begin to dull, fade, crack and peel.


Also, how do you remove it if you want to sell or have the old color back?

Guaranteed for 5 years so its very durable, they actually said the top 'matte over laminate' is more resistant to bird s**t, oil, fallout etc than paint but I don't leave bird crap on my car long.

I actually forgot to ask, but they said it isn't that difficult to do and the paintwork underneath is unharmed.

Thanks Hannes!! I'm actually really looking forward to painting my calipers - sad I know, but I've had the paint since April and I wanna use it!

Oh, on the wheel front, they managed to scuff the chrome up enough to powdercoat them. I'll be dropping off the other three whilst picking up one completed wheel tomorrow.

Looking forward to placing the wheel they done against the Jeep to see how it'll look. I went with matte black.
