I want to eventually stencil it on myself with paint, but didn't have the time right away and it was only $25 for a local shop to make the decal from my drawing. However, it is peeling some from the heat on the hood, so I will probably work up a stencil this summer and remove it to paint it on myself.

I did not take the grill off, just taped it off real well and put paper in behind the grill and went to work with the spray can. However, I would suggest using gloves as this is what happened, LOL:

and it's really hard to get off
That's awesome! Im bed lining my grill but i have wanted to take it off to do so but if I do that then id have to support the radiator some how. I am also planning on doing something like that to my hood but I'm going to get a decal and put it there then bed line the hood and peal the decal off leaving a nice red logo of something(not sure yet). Thanks for the reply

I did that with the Herculiner. Be prepared to regret it! It looks freaking amazing right when you do it. But once it gets dirty... It stays dirty! And that stuff is a pita to clean. I ended up painting the floor pan black but kept the wheel wells and tailgate white. That's still fairly nice after a year

Heading over to a friend's house in a little bit to shed 40 pounds of unwanted and unsightly weight by removing the "Hidden" Hitch off the Pirate's ass. Anyone want to buy a class III hitch for their TJ? lol

I purchase a host of goodies to install on my TJ, speedo gears; new fog lights, battery tray, winch plate, hand throttle and more.

Will post as I install them all.

As for working on my rig today, I made an "8-ball" shifter knob from a pool ball, easy as, and an excuse to buy myself a drill press

Changed the oil and filter, Plasti Dipped the fender flares, and removed the front milk jugs.

Started "Project 30mm," which I'm trying to fabricate an expended 30mm TP round into a shifter knob. I'll post pics if it's successful.

Finally took the head lamp bezels out and sprayed them with bedliner...while I was there, I did the entire engine compartment and the front bumper....then I used plastic Fusion on the flares...didn't waste the bedliner as the flares are coming off soon and being upgraded.
I just did the "super-hides" last weekend...

Oh, I almost forgot to mention, I installed hyperwhite LED'S in the soundbar. They border on TOO bright! Next, get my Wrangler MTR'S w/ kevlar mounted and balanced. Here's to hoping they balance easily.

Looking to get new tires, I'm looking into the Big O bigfoots, mud claw radial M/Ts, BFG KM2s, I'm currently riding on BFG AT KOs in 31x10.5x15 and looking at staying that size for a while, any opinions on the tires I'm looking at?
