Epoxied my Radio bezel, all sanded just need to do a little painting.
Sanded down the white window brackets so I can paint them.

old wheels



new wheels
Paint the new ones black, and I think you'll like them more.

To add to what ET48 was saying about painting the rims black.

I just painted my rims a couple weeks ago. I think they look much better black than they did with the silver. You don't have to paint your rims black but it does look good on a black jeep.

Here is the page with the pics of my newly painted rims.

Why is there so much space down here?

Ya know.... I just couldn't bring myself to be a conformist I will give it a bit of time. I can't do anything like that until we have warm weather anyway.
After looking at the sticker on the inside of the old ones, the color is "polished". That's why they look different. I've never seen "polished" in Krylon, or any other brand for that matter

Got rid of this:




Made a custom bent panel out of sheet steel to replace the ash tray. Came out great! The added switch on the new panel is for the on-board air.
