I'd imagine rivets would work, but honestly I'm not super familiar with using them on this type of project. There are a couple places where theres multiple layers of steel that would make using the rivet difficult possibly

I bought mine in August when I replaced my '88 YJ with a '97 TJ( I didn't get any decals with mine either). Didn't like the tribal phoenix or whatever it was that was on the hood and figured that this looked good and was functional. Sprayed mine with DupliColor spray on bedliner...

I ordered one today. Is it polished or brushed aluminum? It's going on a Black TJ and I really like the bare aluminum look ie contrast. I thought about a high temp clear coat finish via rattle can. Then I stopped by a powder coat shop and they felt it would eventually oxidize. But I see a lot of post from fellow Jeepers that left theirs bare and they didn't have any issues. Those of you that have left yours bare any issues over time? They mentioned clear coat and ball brashing ( I think that's what they called it?) Anyway, wondering what the consenus is regarding leaving it just bare from the factory??? Thanks your you help!

I was more concerned with the glare off of the aluminum when I was driving...that's why I painted mine.

Sorry to yet again revive a dead thread but just a question. I had Line-X do my tube fenders and am curious if anyone had their louver Line-X'd? I would probably only get the top done since that way it would still seal to the hood. Any pics or opinions will be helpful. Thank you

That looks great.

Since this thread is back alive again do any of you guys have pine needles working their way down onto your engine now? I occasionally have to park under a tree that has it in for my radiator and cowling vents. I think my engine would be covered with needles.

I've parked in and around pine trees for years. Occasionally I'll find a couple needles under the hood, but not many. Nothing that I would be concerned about at any rate. I regularly check my fluids so there's never a chance for any to build up.

Thx for reply. I think I'm gonna do this, just need to build up the nerve to cut the hood up. Not sure I like the spider though.
