Today's the day for the visor. After this is done, I'll be so happy with how the Jeep looks, I may be inspired to pay more attention to it.
I also decided last night, the piece of dp at the front of the roof rack is going black. Tired of it looking like a fake LED bar. I'm gonna try to obtain a third crossbeam to match my roof rack, and use it for a light bar for some more KC's to match the ones I've already got.

And in the same day, the visor is on. It's too dark outside to get a good pic. But there will be some tomorrow.

I saw the sneak-preview visor post and I like it. I don't think I'd seen any full view pics of your xj lately, the dp fades to merely accents in the overall. Those wheels are a good 'fit' for it too.

Thanks bud, I appreciate it. This is what happens to a build when the imagination rules the builder.

Hey do me a favor and toy with an angry eye on your rig! I think that could look sick! Just set something up fast and take a pic.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the comments. But no angry eyes, I think they look like a stupid cartoon.
As for the visor complimenting the look, that's why my theme has been going in this direction the whole time. But it isn't the "cat's meow" yet. After a few months of getting dirty, the visor will get marred up enough to match the paint better. Then it'll look much better.

i will have to admit i do not like the door handle accents, I would have made them taper with the handle, like smaller to bigger kind of like the door handle does, and i think it would look alot better with BLACK plastic handles to put that SILVER accent on it. just my TWO cents on that little addition, as I commented before that VISOR looks amazing i am usually not a fan of that but for some reason on that RIG it looks amazing.
