Glasses that color match your wrangler!

So my trusty old renegade fishing glasses were starting to peel the paint. So I took them apart, sanded them down, and painted them to match my jeep, because I can. Turned out nice. About an hour of "work" and took a little longer to let the paint dry and all that. Masking off the metal pieces and the center logo weren't too bad. I thought it was something cool/fun that others could do. I know for now I'm the only one on earth with a pair of these

I forgot to take before pictures because I didn't intend to share this. But there is a picture of me wearing them before hand.

This is actually pretty close to the original color which was bronze/dull gold.

Hehe I'm okay with some chop busting. No ones gona know they match unless I'm in my jeep, and they look better than black and bronze peeling paint all over. It was free too

that's for me to know and you to never find out...

And yes matched, it was black grey or my jeep paint which is what I had on hand. I opted for the more fun color.

you would. I think they look nice.

Frankly I don't really do things for the approval of others. I do things for my own pleasure or to help other people.

Paint scratch dot com. I did my rear corned that has damage from the PO after I did some body work, painted my slider bolts, and brake light mount I fabbed up, these glasses, and still have more paint left. It's around 15-20 bucks for a can. They match the color to your VIN.
