Somebody talk me down from the edge

Did a little tow hook accents today in this orange gloss. After this little tape mock up I'm 2 seconds away from doing it.

What do you guys honestly think?

No No No

Doesn't go with your Jeep. If you must paint them, use the same color of your Jeep IMO.

I think there is another member here that also did blue with orange tow hooks.

I personally don't like it, but its your Jeep and your choice

If you dig it, go with it dude.

Years ago there was a CA bike tuner that built some radical BMW K1200's in those colors. Probably still a few pic's around the web?

It's a unique color contrast I'll give you that. I'm more of a conservative person so I like the look you had before. But like others said the Jeep represents you and there is no ugly Jeep on the road!

I'm a unique kinda person. I just don't wanna make it look cheap. Know what I mean.

Thanks for all your guy's input. Much appreciated. Keep it coming. I'll prolly end up doing them tomorrow if I do at all.

On the body it would look probably look cool. Maybe an orange stripe. Maybe in the vein of boss mustang stripe. That might look cool. The pine stripe on the wheel doesn't look good at all to me, but it's yours. maybe in person it rocks. Pictures don't tell the whole story.

Wont the body just flap and shit after cutting that seam? Would just bending it up work better. Buddy of mine said to just bend it upwards out of the way. Ive never done it so i dont know lol

no not at all. I'll go snap a picture of my pinch seam trim. been done for a while.

edit: crappy picture with my iPad. after you cut, just make sure you throw some paint on it to keep rust away. all that nonsense about job weld, sealing foam, or anything else... is okay but not necessary

google jk pinch seam trim. you'll find all the information you need
