The spare,




Two spray cans of touch up paint for 18 bucks total and here is the finished product.







Thanks JEEPNPR for the idea.
If someone had suggested this to me a month ago, I'd have laughed at them.

Yours, terminator, look awesome.

Although I must admit the photo of the all-blue rim still w/tape on it made me go

Nice.

What is the actual color name for this jeep? Either it's as elusive as the Sahara Tan or they just didn't sell many in my area. Probably a good thing for me though....seeing these all over the place would give me a serious case of color envy. lol
It's cosmo blue lol you got it rite and my dealer In northeast pa only had two one sport s 2 Dr and one Sahara 4 door in cosmo blue

Smshly616 Those look really good! Nice job!

petetlr they look great

terminator012 I am glad you scrolled on down. I do not like the all blue look. Taping them up that way gives you an idea of what they would look like, kinda sucks.
11-15-2011 08:23 AM
panthermark Looks good!
As I was scrolling down, I thought you had painted the entire wheel blue for a second.....

VS1 Great look. Nice job!!!

I like those blue lug nuts. I haven't seen them around here. Do you have a link in case google comes up empty??
I just used Google and found plenty of them. There are even many on Ebay. I dont think you will have a problem finding them. If you have a local speed shop you may want to try there also.

cu in oz THAT look great!!!! Hummmmmmm,,,,,,,,,,
11-14-2011 10:32 PM
Raziel That looks great!!! Now you got me thinking of doing mine! You clear coat them as well?

I've seen the pics of people doing the rhino liner on the rims. I don't like how it looks due to the stock rim looks. Just doesn't look right.

But painting the area isn't a bad idea. Does look great with the silver contrast

Dragonscape Good matching, gives it a whole new look
