Re: How To: reverse hid WJ

I see what you mean now... is the whole jeep like that or just the back?

That's an old pic, I've already tinted them.

It's just the tailgate that's faded but the rest is scratched to shit.

That extra badging, GRAND CHEROKEE on the back, was done by the previous owner. I debadged the whole thing last week except for the tailgate. I started to peel one letter back a little and noticed the fading was even worse underneath so I decided to leave it for now.

Re: How To: reverse hid WJ

I'll either invest in a porter cable and polish the paint myself, or take it to a local detailer and get it done.

Very nice! This is such a great mod, it really helps seeing out of the tinted windows at night.
