Ha, I've got green one too, and I just blacked out my grille too

Looks good

You gonna do the bumpers and cladding to match?

I want to do my stock wheels too, but the clear coat is all janky, and I haven't had the opportunity to remove the tires so I can hit em with Aircraft stripper before I paint them.

Did you paint your calipers too, or did they come red?

I dipped my snowflakes on my green Limited for about a month then took it off. I'm seriously considering polishing the silver part of them and re-painting the gold.

I've seen great results with Krylon Fusion.

Anyway, again, looks great so far!

Holy crap someone else with a Green ZJ. I never see green anymore.

I was contemplating painting my bumpers and cladding Coyote Tan.

Same here, not the look I like but it does look pretty nice.

Also, did anyone catch that Brunete Hottie in the add used as masking?
