Default Painted grill, dressed up the engine bay a bit ( sorry 56k)

Finally got around to painting the grill and engine cover this weekend. Did the strut crossbrace while I was at it, and a few things on the Jeep'* exterior trim too.


was too cold to do it outside so I made a makeshift spray area out of the shower, this is the same method the wife used to house break me.




before you say anything about the intake, I know, I know . It'* going away tommorrow

Still have some more painting to do and some cleaning, but it'* a start.

Make sure to get some clear on the grille or it will chip, trust me.

Looks good! Agreed on the strut bar! From the picture it looks very close to chrome.

I've gotten paint before claiming it was 'chrome' but it wasn't that good at all.
