I have a chili pepper red pearl jeep tj. It has a tan hardtop and interior(but black roll bar padding). I got it with all the stuff thats on it now (bumper wise). It has ss bumpers/light bar and steps and chrome wheels :/. Along with painted flares I was wondering how it would look with black or what some suggestions are. Price is def an issue (along with convincing rents who beleive its theirs and i just borrow it XD)

Go watch Plastidip vids on Youtube. It's not very expensive, pretty easy to do, and completely reversible if you don't like it :thumb:

how does it look dried? is it all noticable it was sprayed?
It actually turns out really nice! So I might keep my tube bumpers for while. In a day or two I can get a photo upload for you of the result. If you do it well it doesn't look like a spray at all.

Thanks! I have tubes as well. Does it come off like through a car wash or anything? And have you ever seen black with a chili red/tan jeep?

Hmm I'm not sure if it comes off or not since I just did it three days ago. Maybe other members from that thread I posted can testify their durability. I drove it on the freeway in the rain the day after I sprayed it and it was fine. As with the color matching, I haven't pay attention to the red/tan jeep, but anything but those shiny bumpers man.

*sigh* I know what you mean. Its hard to please a dad who hates customizing vehicles (oem man) and a mom who hates the thing and wants to sell it. My dad actually likes it (who knows) and so does she. Im not supposed to go offroading or anything. I even had to comp on the lift and tires.
