Opinions Wanted!!!!

I have a jeep green Sahara....I have noticed in the sun that the grill is actually a lighter shade of green than the rest of the jeep. My idea is to just take it out this week shave off the JEEP logo, sand and paint flat black.....

What do you guys think?

I noticed Andy's @finishlinewest is black and it looks good...i plan on just using some cheap flat black paint for plastic so when it chips it is easy to remedy....or even that hammered finish paint at Lowes....

Do NOT do the hammered finish. It has tons of pits that will catch all kinds of crap and will be impossible to clean.

Do it.



I hit it w/ spray on bedliner and I couldnt be happier. One added benefit of the bedliner is that bug guts do not stick to it. I thought it was just a fluke, but I talked to another guy w/ a JK who had also done his grille in duplicolor this weekend and he told me he was enjoying the same added benefit. That's my 2 cents...

yes I think the one I did, we did 3 coats with 2 cans, and to make it easy get a 3M maroon scotch brite pad to sand it with, works great, easy and fast.

Go for it, it's not for me, but I like the look on other rigs.

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99 a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money.

I think you should think about if you realy want to do it. I mean once you sand it and try, what if you dont like it??? What you could do is do mine for me and see if you like it.
