wj content: headlight restoration and blacked out grill
 
Ok so this is my first mod the my wj and I really like the outcome. Very small but Im broke with 2 kids so bear with me. Tried the new heavy duty headlight restoration kit from meguiars. not bad but I need to re-do them with 600 grit to get the harder oxidation off.

Looks way better! How much better are your headlights now? lol If you have time, I recommend taking out the whole headlight next time you clean them. I found that it was easier to clean and I did a better job when I could move the headlight to the angle I wanted.

Why did you only go black on the inner half of the grille and not the whole thing?

Thanks man! I was going to but I just figured I would see how good it did in the first place. I dont like the whole grille blacked out, looks cheap IMO. I think with the surround still color matched it kinda pops a little more. May consider getting a chrome surround, it will match the headlights more
