I was gonna do the roll bars, when I do the interior. I was thinking the two sides, or the on that crosses, or all.

What do you mean 2 toned?

2 tone is pretty much just 2 different colors of paint. If I were you I would paint the entire inside of the rim black, and then paint a small white strip around the outside

Yeah I used rustoleum rim paint for mine and it holds up great. Some also use bedliner but that's a little harder to get clean because of the textured finish. Either one will work great with the proper prep work

I've never heard of someone doing this! Very cool. Are those 30's or 31's you're running?

Those might be a bit tough on your own but if you have the time, patients, and steady hands, go for it.

I was originally just talking about a little strip around the outside of the entire rim

As of now I am not allowed to paint my rims. however I can paint my hard top. I was thinking a rustoluim textured black on outside and same but white on the inside. Should I do white on the outside? I personally think that may be too much white to black ratio. Remember the hood and flares are gonna end up being white. ( sorta)

Hey, I like it! Different in a good way! I keep doing little things to mine to fit my taste as well. Here's an idea to maybe help keep the white look going and incorporate the front end into the overall scheme: Clear corner and signal markers. Clear Corner, Marker & Signal Lenses - Quadratec I did this to mine and absolutely luv the look. Costs a little more than I'd liked but I have no regrets! Either way, looking good!

I like the white on everything but the mirrors. Good for you doing what you like on a budget. As long it is what you like who cares what everyone else thinks.

Ok so I might I fell back a step tonight. I went and had some fun. Well now the white has some green in it lol. I will have picture tomorrow and hopefully, if no real bad damage I will let it be for now. I plan on doing the hard top tomorrow as well as putting a flag for both when the top is on and when it is off.

Oh yeah ingot stuck in sugar sand.

Doesn't look to bad but... I was stuck pretty good. My friend had a good idea and we dug out two tires placed my floor mats underneath and got some traction.
