Painted diff covers

I am replacing my diff fluid soon and was toying with the idea of painting them while they are off. So post up pictures of you painted covers. Preferably off a TJ but I guess it really doesn't matter. Thanks.

I think I am going to paint it a darker green. I don't think i care much for the brighter colors of the covers. But the darker colors work for me since they don't stand out quite as mcuch but still look cool. My jeep is dark green so it will somewhat match that as well.

It looks red here. It's painted to match, Impact Orange.

This is a little better pic.


Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.
