During the winter i got a bunch of snow built up on my grille and I kicked it in an attempt to clean it off (bad idea) i snapped one of the plastic grille inserts off and it had bothered me for quite some time. While browsing the forums I saw multiple people doing the metal gutter guard mod and decided to tackle that myself today. Pretty pleased on the way it turned out.
Before (the piece that broke out i super glued in but it looked bad)
All i used was some gutter guard from Home Depot and some zip ties
I painted the gutter guard black with some PlastiDip
All Zip tied in, I took the painted part of the grille apart from the black plastic so i could hide the zip ties
I also had some spare LED strips laying around so i said why not and mounted them up in the grille, I have them on the same switch as the interior lights and it doesn't look half bad. Just got bored and wanted something to do.
After starting this thread i relized how many pictures of things I don't have.
If anyone wants to see more pictures of anything let me know i'll do my best to post them.
Some future mods I'm planning on doing is a 2" RRO lift, New wheels/tires, and more cosmetics such as tail light guards, and some sort of front bumper.
Just need to make that money
The wheels im looking at getting are the Mickey Thompson Classic III, with the backspacing of those wheels i can prevent from running spacers. I know a lot of people do run spacers I've just heard lots of bads over goods about them and I really like the look of the M/Ts.
^x2 I am getting tired of wood grain panels.. I did thought of plastdip but, the texture would be not good idea.. so i will go with vinyl wrap. But would like to know how long will plastdip lasts in your wk.
nice progress build
Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl, Limited, OR1, QTII, Plasti dipped
Its been almost 2 months and the dip is holding up well on the interior trim, actually looks better than the day I did it because it had a chance to settle. No signs of wear. I also painted the trim around the stereo to make it belnd better with the a/c control panel
