Yes, but only because I'm planning to repaint my TJ in that color with black accents and want to see how it would look.

Yeah, my hinges have mostly all gone to ****, so when I repaint this year, I'm going to replace all the hinges with black powdercoated ones.

Nah. Ney. No. Nope. You're headlight surrounds are already blacked out. That's good enough.

Use Plastidip. If you like the look, peel it off and paint it.. If you don't, just peel it off

I'm undecided only because it looks so good right now...I do think it would look tough blacked out though. Maybe that dip idea is the way to go so you can go back if you don't like it?
