99 tj sport build

This thread is to show the progress of my jeep and get ideas and opinions on mods. I had a previous account but I fort my password so I'm starting over again.

Here she was the day I got her, I thought she looked a little too "stock"

Next on my list is to possible take all the chrome on my front and plasti-dip it because since I got the black wheels I realize how good black looks on my jeep

Light bezels come out with three screws - 3 coats of Plasti-Dip will be done in less than 2 hours.

Ok here is another cheap idea I might go for

The stock lettering on the side is white and doesn't match anything on my jeep

So I'm might buy this kit to Chang the lettering to black for about $15

Then that would match everything else that is black on my jeep and I might get this hood decal

What are your thought it should be around $50 dollars for all of it and would give it a nice look

I did my wheels w/4 coats, flares w/3 coats and my bezels with 3 cans.
1 should do it for you, but it's always good to have some extra in the garage.

I used 4 coats on my grill and no chipping. The first time I did it I didn't clean it good enough so I had to redo it. Did the hinges today.

I used rust-I-oleum lens tent 2 coats. Tail lights too. I had to lighten the tail lights up a little with acetone and a rag because the were too dark for Indiana State Police.
