had some fun with red spray paint, what do you think?

painted my diff cover and the A/C vent surrounds, and went ahead and painted the door inserts too. brought some life into the interior and i think it looks good with my floorboard LED strips turned on.
so... or :thumbsdown: ??? what do you think?

it was pretty easy to paint the diff cover. i just taped around the edges with some blue painters tape and then sprayed a couple of coats of red on it, took longer to pull off all the tape than it did to paint it!

That looks pretty awesome! The red lights and red surrounds remind me of a sweet show car at one of those auto shows.

Very nice!

I painted my diff covers orange to match my TJ, and people comment on them a lot. My tub is lined black, but I do have some other orange accents.

The red accents make yours look pretty sweet

I will be doing almost the same with mine this weekend. My jeep is black and I am doing the vent surrounds, diff covers, gauge surround, and trying to decide if I should do the calipers. Any thoughts. I just hate how the weather makes the calipers look so painting is for sure but trying to decide on red or black?

whenever i'm in a diff i paint the cover to match the Jeeps color (probably 40+) ... even the three camo's that i've axled and locked.

gravity, momentum, and large immobile objects are destroying my jeep. that or operator error.

it took me while to decide between red and silver (body color) but i went red just because it stands out more!

White cover on White jeep

I have a white GC with the white painted sides and white shocks.

Do you guys think painting the diff cover white will look okay? im worried the gunk and grime will make it dirty too often

It's probably going to look dirty often, maybe go for a different color? I painted mine red with the knowledge that its gonna get dirty!
