need opinions please

Need your opinion guys and gals.....Im thinking about powdercoating my 20s, mirror covers, grill, and perhaps some of the other chrome stuff as well as tinting the front windows. I really can't decide whether to pull the trigger or not. Here is my crummy attempt to visualize it with MSPaint. Should I or shouldn't I?

Re: need opinions please

You should really do what you want...asking others on this website what you should do is not a good idea...for instance, I am going to tell you it looks like poo. Why do you want to take a classy looking luxury vehicle and do that to it...the only thing I did to mine was put chrome fog light inserts and tinted my front windows to match and I cannot tell you how many compliments I get on my ride...HOWEVER someone in their 20's will come right behind me and tell you how bad ass it looks and you should rip all your badges off and plasti dip you tail lights black and also the chrome strip on back...

keep it classy...dont overdo it

Re: need opinions please

My opinion is you need Photoshop. MS Paint isn't cutting it :P

If your jeep is silver it will look a lot nicer color matching those parts than painting them black.

Re: need opinions please

I agree, this is a personal decision.
I do like it but for resale, you might have a hader time selling it.

Thumbs up GrandHero

Paint the grill for sure but not black, go with the same color as your ride. With the black grill looks like it is missing in action. Hope this helps.

Re: need opinions please

have u considered plasti-dipping your wheels? My buddy did it & it looks pretty dope. If you don't like it you can take it off pretty easily
