Have you kept track of the number of hours that you have spent on this transformation? Just curious as to how long this has taken.
Back in my younger days (this is about to show my age) you could have taken the KK to your local Earl Scheib and had the entire Liberty painted for $29.95. And by entire I mean ENTIRE!!! wheels, door handles, tires...well you get the picture. In truth, they did a pretty fair paint job, sometimes the tape job left some to be desired.

Like the look of the new roof rails....they look to be functionalbe.

OMG.

You have a ton of patience.

It looks freaking awesome, but I would think that there would be a ton of wrinkles and I don't see ANY!

KICK ***.

I have a friend who does his own powdercoating, so eventually when i get to accent colors on the plastic I will see if he has a color to match, otherwise just find a plain black gas cap and wrap it, or powdercoat my current one black or some random color... just not chrome!

I don't have an exact time but I would say each panel takes at least an hour, definitely getting up to two when you include all of the trimming and hiding the corners and trying to fix any small mistakes. As for the roof rails, I would have to agree, especially compared to the stock plastic ones, I don't think they are even meant to be used with the skyslider roof? Looking forward to getting a light bar or a roof rack in the future!

Matte black has to be one of the most photogenic colors, possibly true for other matte colors as well, but don't be deceived there are some wrinkles and overlaps. They really are only noticeable close up, for my first time working with vinyl and for doing the whole thing, I am completely satisfied! Looking forward to doing a better job next time though!

you may or may not have noticed the KJ one or some of the pics by my driveway, my brother's, I could stick some extra on and see how the texture comes through, and how well it sticks!

It's silver, I'd start with the flares and center of the hood and see how it looks. I'm going to check with a local sign place and see if they have that vinyl in charcoal gray, I think that would blend with the silver better since I'm only doing a few parts. But doing the whole bottom is an interesting idea also...

For the roof rails installation I had to rip off the stock useless rails, which is just adhesive I'm sure you know from other threads. That exposes the stock bolts sticking up out of the roof. The rails come with a set of bolts/washers/nuts, but I didn't want to deal with changing the bolts so I kept the washers and went out to get a new set of nuts. 1/4 nuts fit the stock bolts, they may seem not to get onto the threads at first, you gotta work through the paint on the bolt, they must be exposed during the factory paint job. Before tightening them down the rails seemed to fit a little funny, but once secured that was corrected! I read on someone else's install of these rails to be careful when tightening down on the stock bolts, because he pulled one out of his roof which caused leaking. They seem to be very sturdy, I'm able to rock my jeep back and forth with them!
Great achievement buddy! Only last weekend I started thinking of matte coating my liberty, and now that I saw yours I'm more certain on the topic.

Is there a way your windows glass to be Matte tinted as well?

even more freedom!

I like it. Can I ask why you chose the wrap instead of having it painted?
