Painted bumper accents

I'm not one for the chrome look myself but thought it would be a cool idea to paint a bumper accent a brighter green to accent my natural pearl green JK. It comes close to matching the decals I've put on also. I have replacement decals for the sport/wrangler/unlimited stickers that match but haven't put them on just yet. The rear bumper is also finished but I haven't got to putting it on either. I'm not sure how well it is going to last since it is just a rattle can job but I'll find out soon enough. I also did some clear coat layers for added protection. Thanks to Seadog for the great deal on the bumper accents! Heh, it took me long enough to put to good use!

Looks good. That definitely contrasts with the Natural Green.

I need sunglasses.

There, that's better.

I tried to be good, but I got bored...

The picture really doesn't do it too much justice. Camera phone couldn't pick up the sunlight off the bright green very well. It's bright but not blinding. I'm actually looking into some Wet Okoles seat covers but for the other Jeep. It's a mango tango and Wet Okoles has a color that matches pretty good! They do seem pricey though. Pricey for what seems like good quality.

Hmm, I really like the green accents on the stickers. Not sure about the bumper though...but it might be the picture as you said. Can you make another one?

This one should be better. The forum automatically downgrades them I see. Hopefully it doesn't downgrade this one too far

No disresect but I'm not a fan of the "HULK" green.

Non taken. Taste is a funny thing. Jeep's are not immune to peoples tastes just like everything else. I like that so many Jeepers come up with ways to customize and make it theirs. That's part of the allure of it all for me. So many different people with a common interest to share. I'll never take offense and try my hardest not to criticize someone else's Jeep. Heh, like how I didn't say never for the second part... Gotta have wiggle room! If only for a little fun!
