Well I got an extra part and been working.... with it

started off with all gloss black it would match my wheels.

Well of course it came out about 98% perfect there was a maybe half inch piece of dust that got on there before the clear. So no big deal Im not paying for paint or anything so... Instead of just fixing that 1 spot we come up with this


Now this came out a little worst... minor flaws here and there, but not too bad, but it will have to be redone its not going on my car til Im 100% happy with it. Even though my cars paint all ready isnt all good.

So now I have to decide what I wanna do... and honestly stock is looking pretty good even though I would love either designs on my car. I might push this plan back and wait for the winter to pass. Whatcha think?

So
Stock?
All Black?
Black/red inside?

my vote is for all black. the concentric red/black/red gives a dizzying-vortex type effect, and not in a good way.

i think flat or satin black looks especially good, and making a horizontal stripe with the tails looks even better than painting that whole panel black.

found this photochop

All black looks good. I think that your color and YJ's are the only colors that can pull that look off. The red license plate area reminds me of a taxi cab, I dont know why its just not right. SG

Well, ive just been thinking and thinking on what I wanna do. Looking at the pics and talking to my bro (my painter) on what he thinks. Right now were set on the all black, but the black middle is sounding good too.

So im selling this one and most likely will have the stock one painted sometime after the winter. So if anyone is interested, check it out in the for sale threads.

i just though about that spray on a comercial, it's like temporary spray paint to do "custom grafix" and "protect your paint" according to them, it's dupont or something like that. that would be a good way to get a real feel for what it would look like

All black, but satin or flat, personally I don't like the gloss. I am biased though :D
