|The-Judge||Plasti dipped mine 6 months ago and they still look great. It holds up well and it dries smooth|

Yes, black flows with most. Everything on my jeep was black, except for the chrome headlight trim rings, lug nuts and wheels. So, trim rings and wheels went to the dark side. Left lug nuts and center caps left alone.

|Pink_Percy||I bought the black bezel about 5 yrs ago and their still perfect. A buddy of mine didn't want to spend the $30 bucks for them so he has since spray bombed his bezels at least a dozen or so times from chipping costing about $50 in paint.|

Did my headlight bezels about a week ago with some krylon spray paint. Couldnt take the Fake chrome either.
Not sure I wanna do the grill too, but its in my mind.
How does the Plasti-dip stuff hold up with washes? Does it have a texture to it?
Also thinking of doing the middle of the hood as well. Think that looks awesome!

I did mine body color also. I did not want the black eye look (did the grille inserts body color too)

|ajp197||yeah the desert pearl sand color begs for black accessories. i think..|

|Moose-Island||I had mine painted body color - very pleased with the result.|

I think blacked out bezels make a WORLD of difference....
Another subtle painting is the retaining rings on the headlamps.... makes a cool difference! A quick shot with Rustoleum after a scuff with a 3M pad...
before and after..

Sprayed mine with Plasti dip along with the grill and hood. I like it.

|buster-717||i painted mine back and my tj is black so it looks great. i used rattle can paint then sprayed clear on them a year ago and still looks great.|

I painted mine and the ring that hold the bulb in and the grill. I didn't want any bling up front

If you don't like the black grill you can just peel it off. It only cost about 10 bucks and takes about an hour.

|BamaRolln||The black around the lights looks really good. DONT paint the grill. To each his (or her) own but that doesn't look good IMO. But then I absolutely HATE black rims so......|

Oh, I like the red. Pops nicely.
I initially resisted painting mine black b/c I thought they'd give the Jeep a 'racoon' look, but was quite happy with it after deciding to make the plunge. Even the GF (who's generally disinterested my tinkerings) said they looked dramatically better in black.

|99tj707||That looks great. I probably will spray mine after I redo the half doors and hard top.|
|08-02-2012 08:31 PM|
okay, that red is awesome!
on this post), and if you use plasti-dip, which comes in a spray can, you can peel it off if you decide you don't like it!
|08-02-2012 08:07 PM|
Went off a limb and painted mine red :P
|08-02-2012 07:51 PM|
|StephTech||I think it's a great idea! Now I want to get gasket material to outline the blinkers|
|08-02-2012 07:49 PM|
|99tj707||I re sprayed my flares as well. I'm a little nervous about painting my grill. I think I might leave it like this for awhile. Do you have pics of yours?|
|08-02-2012 07:44 PM|
|dabolt55||Looks good, you'll be painting the grill next.|
