UR50SLO gave me an offer around what I paid my shop so if you're in the market and dont mind fussing with shipping he might be your best bet. a lot of members have said he does great paint work too!

Re: Painted (to match) air dam, rockers and mirror covers WK 07 Limited

Look good, but you could have save another $100 by doing it your self.

Duplicolor has a match paint (jeep stone white) @ about $9.00 , plus another for the clear, primer and sand paper.

*Duplicolor paint $9.00 x 3
*Duplicolor clear coat $7.00 x 4
*Duplicolor primer $6.00 x 2
*Sand paper $10.00

Total. $77.00

The paint match perfectly, I repaired my 08 rear bumper and the paint blending was perfect.

Re: Painted (to match) air dam, rockers and mirror covers WK 07 Limited

you'd also need adhesive promoter for the plastic. I also heard from a couple guys here that the aerosol clearcoat won't look the same as a spray gun (unless you're experienced with it).

the Adhesion Promoter Primer will be another $10

with the Duplicolor Clear coat the key is to give several light coats withing 8 minutes intervals, I usually do around 5 to 6, leave it cure for at least 2 days then a light wet sanding, buffing and it will looks just as it came out of the paint boot.

Looks Awesome. I was so happy when i got my front color matched, next i am going to do my mirrors (doing it myself) and then the last thing will be the sides.

the front one needs a flex additive which you can't buy online though.

Seriously, Like it really costs that much more during production to paint the black plastics on the limited models. i guess its just one more thing to make the Overland Model (the one most cant afford) stand out from the rest of the crowd. They really hit the nail on the head with the 2010, since there was no Overland the limited got all the nice painted stuff and fancy options.

BTW, i also love your style/look. I love the nice luxurious style with all the color matched trim but some nice beefy AT tires. Thats how i plan to finish off mine once its all color matched.

A nice clean look! Painting the trim pieces on these WKs make them stand out from the others. Especially in the case of a white one like yours.

nice of you to notice the guy at my UPS store I always talk to complimented me on the new paint and told me i needed some shoes for it. I told him the store was out of the 20" reps I would have gone with and I was really happy with the AT's and the painted calipers
