Painted the cladding and bumpers black. Also installed the rainguards.
In a few days, I'm going to sand it all down with 1200 grit and do another layer to get rid of the orange peel look.

Looks good. Did you do any prep before hand?

I was going to 800 grit sand them down, but we tested a piece first and it didn't come out the way I wanted it to.

A small update, tinted tails and headlights, and got her registered. I'm buying a used FM40 from my friend that he had in his impala SS. I might be getting it installed this saturday, but not 100% sure yet.

Here's pics of the tails and heads. The headlights aren't tinted dark at all




And before anyone asks, the ZJ in the driveway is JFCIII, and the blazer in front of my WJ is my buddys SFA S10 Blazer on 35's. I'm sure everyone has seen the pictures of it already.

You tinted headlights that already have a black housing?
