Vacation week plans
 
Took a week off work. Decided on a few inexpensive projects to the jeep.

Tint taillights
Install silverstar reverse bulbs
Make a painted wire mesh grille, like the one on here that is amazing
Remove all sorts of plastic chrome all over my jeep
Remove cross bars on racks on top
Have white lettering on tires flipped to black sides

I started by pulling off all the Chrome and being blessed with tons of nasty old 3m tape. I have so far spent over 2 hours taking off a small section. I will be picking up a pinstripe eraser wheel tomorrow to speed this up

I will hopefully get some pics when I am done

pinstripe wheel is where its at.....several hours of work down to a few minutes. I have the tail lights and the grille out. The grille is ready for the mesh to be painted and installed. The tail lights are still waiting for me to paint them.

Need to call and make an appointment to get my tires swapped around. And figure out how to get the dumb cross bars off the top

Sounds like you are accomplishing your goals. Are you gonna relax at any point while on vacation? I love lazy days.

here are some pics so far....The pics of the grille do not do justice to how it actually looks. I also removed the trail rated emblem after this pic

The grille looks great but is not holding up. Three pretty decent chips in the mesh already. Anyone know where to get the same type of mesh but already black plastic?

I found some plastic mesh at lowes, Its not as sturdy as the metal, but its black, so the paint wont chip off after a week. Its sold outside with the chicken wire....its around 11 bucks for a huge roll. It cuts with scissors and took me about 10 minutes to swap out. What do you think?
