Rhino Shield on Roof and Hood

The paint on my '97 ZJ is really nice... except on the roof and hood. It is starting to peel and flake. I have considered getting the ZJ repainted on the roof and hood. The rest of the body is really sharp and in good condition, one little rust spot that has been take care of.

So I am considering also getting Rhino Shield applied to the roof and hood. Thoughts? Has anyone out there done that? What would you think are the pros and cons?

Thanks for any input. I do plan on keeping this ZJ for some years to come.

BTW, one of the reasons that I was thinking of having Rhino Shield is that the black roof and hood might have a nice contrast with the freshly painted black cladding and bumpers. I took off all of my trim and bumpers and over several days, I sanded it down and applied four coats of Krylon Fusion Satin Black and then three coats of Krylon Fusion Clear Satin. The body paint is the '97 dark tan color.

I've not seen anyone do it particularly just on the hood and roof, but from the sound of it with the trim black already, I think visually it would look decent. As far as practicality, you won't have to worry about scratches and things. It's really up to you, it's not going to do a whole lot for practicality, so it's more your preference of how it looks. Some people think it looks tacky, but others love it.

Thanks for the opinion! I have seen some ZJ's and CJ's fully Rhino-Shielded. To me they looked really nice, considering that they are Jeeps. To have the hood and roof done by a pro, it is $450.00. These people have a great reputation and have done many truck beds and body surfaces, but never a Jeep.

I figure over the long haul, like you said, I won't have to be concerned about any adverse wear on the top surfaces. Over time, I may have the remainder of the vehicle done.
