Plasti dipped the pillars, first DIY mod...
 
So I've been wanting to do this for a while but never had the gutts.. So here ya go.
First plan was to dip the wheels and the pillars but theres not enough time left in the day.
So I just started with the pillars first,(and it gave me a chance to play with the plasti dip).
I know that the prep work in doing the pillars is all of it.

Only took about 2hrs. I did thin coats and about 4 or 5. I want it thick so it will last...

Wheels are next!!!!!!!!!

I think It makes it a lot cleaner, ecspecially with the tinted windows!

I am doing my wheels soon hopefully. Keep us posted when you do yours!

Great job!

I love white WKs with dark windows. I think you should leave the wheels non painted. Looks good just the way it is.

Pillers are perfect with the windows. White looks good with the black door handle, trim moldings, tires......white is just awesome.

Don't tint the tails neither. I would only tiny tails on a black and maybe dark gray car.

Edit: It's you're Jeep, I'm just throwing ideas at you.

Then the emblems:
