    Default Painted my grill. Like or No Like?

    I was bored and broke today and wanted to do something to the jeep. I plan on painting it someday a flat color, like desert tan, od, or even black. So I figured id get a head start and use up a can of satin black paint I had lying around. By the way if anybody local would like to swap there black handles and mirrors for my chrome ones let me know. So now for the pics. What do you think?

    Some days it is just not worth it to gnaw through the leather restraints.

    Good luck with trading for door handles and mirrors... Ive been trying the same thing for over a year I finally just said screw it and shot them black as well ... the mirrors no problem the handles PAINTED good but didnt hold up too long... also dont forget the replace or paint your windshield surrounds... that is also a pain for KEEPING paint on there... I think Im gonna wire wheel mine first this time to get a good adhesion! but yeah I plan on going desert tan soon and IMO black LOOKS great but if you have over heating issues and you paint it flat black it will just add to your frustration... go a lighter color! I thought about terra cotta red like this

    but I remembered that it would show tree scratches REALLY bad and Id be repainting very often

    What about a local p-n-p for the handles and mirrors??? or have some people that live in other places look for the parts in their local p-n-p's.... I would if I was at home right now... I thought about painting mine a flat black or flat desert tan... and then later down the road having a perfessional paint job done changing the color to the metallic orange that the Rubi's used to have... but wouldn't want to waste the money on the paint, just to have it all torn to hell on the trails... so will just stick with my current color, and maybe down the line rattle can desert tan it...

    A guy on another site is giving me his black handles. And I'm pretty dead set on painting the jeep OD now.
