Re: SRT 20" reps

Yea, I figured I would just order them from Justforjeep, but I thought I would look around to see if I could find them cheaper.

Re: SRT 20" reps

That looks superb, totally agree with the skinny door mouldings.

Painted door handles and mirrors will complete it IMO, but they do contrast and flow well with the tails etc...

Re: SRT 20" reps

I taped off everything around them and then sanded with 1,000 grit sand paper (or 700-800) to get the wax off, then few coats of black and a few coats of clear. Only problem I have is that some of the paint around the window chipped off, so I had to go back, sand, and use touch up paint. Then wet sand and buff them out.

It's kind of pain. I think a lot of guys on here use vinyl or you could get the chrome pillars from ebay, sand, and paint those. It would be easier as you wouldn't have to tape off the whole car and wouldn't get the chipping around the windows that I've seen.

Re: SRT 20" reps

What about the pillar on the very back where it wraps around to the back window? did you do that the same way?
