I also just have the small logo... and I don't mind it one bit. It's a balance between customer satisfaction and product promotion. When we buy a product from a company, we usually do it bc we like the design and quality of the said product. The company's logo is one way to identify where this product came from, but in all honesty most people who find out about good products are through word of mouth and convos.
On my last wheeling trip, I was following my group through the creek at the badlands offroad park and another group was passing by going the other direction. As they were passing by, one guy who was passing me stopped and said "dude is that the poison spyder louver?? Nice man looks good"
ok, i am going to install it bare with no powder coating or paint. has any one done it like this and if you did how did you get rid of the scratchs from it being stamped.
It's aluminum so you can use aluminum polish to clean up any scratches or scuffs. I would shoot a few layers of clear coat to keep the aluminum from oxidizing and dulling. Use high gloss clear if you want a bright aluminum look with high reflection, or go with a flat clear for a basic aluminum look.
This is how my louver turned out with the PSC powder coating and 5 layers of high gloss clear coat, sorry for the poor quality phone pics...
i cleaned up a lot of scratchs, then i put mag wheel cleaner for cast wheels that took all the shine off. i wanted this look so it will match the aluminum rear corners and tailgate. i may change my mind later and have it powder coated as well as the other aluminum i have to go with the black color of the jeep. it turned out good and i have tryed to insert a photo but they must have change some thing on this site. i was able to do it easy but can't now.
I wouldn't want to be in range of that guy's LEDs! From what I can see there's the hood bar, two windshield hinge pods, and a double row light bar running along the top of the windshield frame (can see it in the hood reflection)... that's some SERIOUS light output!
Here's a detailed video on the Hood Louver installation process. This vid is specific to the TJ version, but the procedures and concepts are just about the same for other models. Make sure to follow the template and instructions that came with your specific model.
