Re: My solution to de-chroming GC Overland handles and mirrors

I'm getting all my wrapping done on my Billet Silver Overland on April 3rd (maybe sooner if someone before then cancels). I am doing the mirrors and door handles in gloss black. But all my chrome will be completely gone after it's done. I'll make sure to post a picture for those who want to know about the black door handles. I had the same question. I finally found a picture, and I liked it. I'm going for it. Stay tuned!

I have a friend who is going to powder coat my wheels in gloss black. That's going to tide me over until I can afford to get the wheels I want and either the BFG KO2 tires or the NTG G2s.

As far as expensive, it's really not. It's $700 to do my full chrome delete using the Avery Vinyl wrap. That's including him having to remove the door handles and possibly the front bumper. It's also from a very reputable dealer down here who actually won the award for best wrap at the Las Vegas expo in 2015. I think that's more than fair considering in OEM parts you would be looking at at least $200 for the black fog lights and tail light bezels. Plus your labor and time for doing anything you would have done yourself. I have no idea how much the lower fascia cost to get it in black so that would be more costs.

If you are looking for a black lower fascia, I got the textured black one for about $48. Install took about 45 minutes since you have to pull everything off the lower bumper to get it replaced.

I agree, if this guys as good as you say, it's worth it.
if it comes out good, you can afford it, and your happy when it's done...it's a good deal.

I was thinking of getting that and color matching it. to break it up a little down there. or just keeping it black lol another last minute decision.

Color matching it would be tricky to make it look good since it's textured...unless you don't mind that.

I was thinking that also, but thinking maybe since its on the bottom it might not be so bad, I might have a smooth one painted also, and compare....just one of a thousand thoughts

Re: My solution to de-chroming GC Overland handles and mirrors

was debating on the rear step plate also, it was textured but came out fine paint wise, I did it on my 07 back then. but it might be too much silver.

Re: My solution to de-chroming GC Overland handles and mirrors

If you wanted to smooth out the textured piece you could build up some high build primer and sand it, seal it, then paint it. I'll be painting all my textured pieces this spring, but since my Jeep is black all I need to do is get some deep black trim paint to darken it up a bit.
