My WK2 getting de-chromed
 
Just wanted to share a few pics of my work in process to get the chrome off my rig. So far the back, window trim, door guard, and front Jeep logo are done. If next weekend is nice Ill get the grill, side mirrors, door handles and eventually get the rims. I have my lamin-x tail tint ready but will be waiting till spring to put them on. (sorry it is so dirty was supposed to snow today but the storm missed us and wanted to take advantage of the weather).

All done via plastidip. Will probably go for a more permanent solution via Scott but wanted to see how I like it before biting that bullet.

Looks good. I want to try and wrap the window surrounds myself.

I removed the " jeep" from the hood, " trail rated badge" and rear "4x4" from mine, looks cleaner and much nicer.

Nice work, I got a price on an aerosol can of plastidip here in oz....AUD$42.00 per can, it might be an expensive exercise for me.

Ouch $42 a can, that is crazy. I think I paid somewhere around $5 a can at home depot.

I didnt like how the trim around the windows came out so I will be removing it and going a vinyl route for the rest of the chrome (if anyone has a recommendation around Salt Lake I'd gladly take it) and will remove the side molding for a cleaner look. I have been planning on plasti-dipping the rims but after seeing the 22" WK1 SRT reps I am saving for those. But I guess if I am bored I will still do the rims.
