Grill/brow color selection help
Need an opinion here. I removed my front grill and rear brow today so I can paint them tomorrow. My original plan was to paint them body color. I'm now torn between that or gloss black. My jeep is natural green pearlcoat. My only concern is if I do the grill black I really think I need the black altitude headlights to pull of the look right. Chrome side moldings will also be removed tomorrow and replaced with grand cherokee script.

So what's you're opinion? Would you paint these parts black or body color?

Decided to do the grill gloss black, the brow is body color. Jeep script on the brow will be gloss black. All emblems on the jeep, hood, door, and hatch, will be gloss black. Either altitude headlights will be used or Ill take apart the chrome ones and paint the inside. Chrome around the windows and on roof rails will be wrapped in gloss black vynil. And finally, black wheels. I think itll be a pretty sweet looking package once done.
Ill post pictures of the grill tomorrow. The rear brow is a two day project. Painted it green and cleared it today. Tomorrow I will wet sand it, brush in the black for the emblem and reclear the panel. Wednesday I should have pics of that

There are some good new vehicle wrap materials available. I believe Avery is making a chrome wrap in colors. I do not know if black chrome is available but I think it would look great on the grill on a black wk2. Even the mirror caps.

The parts are done and on the Jeep now. Looks amazing! Especially with the chrome side moldings off and the black script on. Im not sure if I want to post pictures yet because its not 100% complete. Im still debating wheels and the chrome trim needs to be wrapped.
