yea yea - i get what your saying now

the idea is to keep the wheels as they are and match the trim and grill to the wheels... perhaps even that small area around the back plate as well

Re: need opinions on paint job

I really don't like the gray-on-red accents of that '09 WK. However, because you have a silver WK, I rescind my earlier comments. For your WK, you're talking about dark silver (metallic gray) on light silver (tone on tone). I actually like that idea, but strongly recommend you paint the sliders to match.

I'd even consider playing around with some form of vinyl rally stripe for the hood, roof and liftgate, painted to match the wheels. (I'd go vinyl in case you hate the look - you could just peel them off.)

yea - that was my thought from the start w/ the paint color and rim color - it's actually the light gray stone not the silver but same point.

I'll probably start w/ the grill and trim then decide if i want to go onto the hood...

Re: need opinions on paint job

I think itd be sick. I just finished one of my boredom projects for the winter.......




I went with the matching the wheels to the vehicle instead of the vehicle to the wheels to each their own. BTW mik, where'd you find the tire mount for your rack? I want to get the rola rack but can't find a tire mount for it.....
