Before and after Pics. I bought some JK rims to go on it. I am currently in Germany with the Army and it is very limited on part. I have a Leveling kit coming and super sliders both from RRO. I will do more when I go back to the states next year. Hope you like. Oh yea go the Idea from the Trailhawk.

matthewbunton 04-29-2013 01:12 AM

Can you go into detail regarding the plastidip on the chrome molding? I attempted to about a month ago and I failed miserably but I still want it done.

Your WK2 looks great. The hood is the best part. :thumbsup:

I miss Germany. I was stationed in Schweinfurt. But I was born in Landstuhl and went to elementary school in Ramstein.

Did you plasti dip the chrome molding around the windows? I want to do this also.

BigNunz6 04-29-2013 10:19 AM

white lettering on the tires facing out kinda throws the whole black out thing off. Just my opinion.

That looks great; had the black hood vinyl on my Trailhawk until I pulled the whole thing off. I removed mine due to the red accent line that's one piece attached to the black. It was just way too busy and cartoonish, but your all black is real nice against the silver.

I'd like to do a small area of black at the centered indentation part of the hood. May have to try this; how many coats of spray did you use on the hood?

Jackal01 - As for the Chrome molding, I did Vinyl I used a heat gun and a lot of patients. If you get bubbles just give it a couple of days for them to smooth out. One thing I for to add you have to spray the molding and the vinyl with soapy water.

stevebanzai - You can plastidip your molding but that is a lot of taping.

Bignunz6 - I just found these tires two hours before I plastidipped them. When I get to the states I will get me some 33 on there. I am about to put a leveling kit on it. When I return to the states I will put the king shocks witch will add 4 inches and the RRO winch complete front end with pre runner skid plate. So the tires are just for now.

Dangfoo - I got the idea from the trail hawk. you are correct it makes it to busy on the hood.

Looks great. I'm stationed at McChord myself.
