Need opinions...

Need opinions...

I recently removed the "Compass" and "High Altitude" badges from my Jeep. I replaced the Jeep badges with black ones. I was thinking of doing plasti-dip on the front grill for sure. Not sure if I want to do the chrome around the fog lights. Since I have the silver & grey wheels will this still look ok? I do not want to do the wheels. Jeep is Black.

I would probably do the chrome trim around the fog lights as well. I'm always fond of a complete murdered out look where there's no chrome at all.. I'm not a fan of chrome at all clearly haha

Best part is though, if you don't like it, you can always peel it back right?

Would be interesting to see the final result. A buddy here got the same color and planning to de-chrome it as well. Gonna give him a hand right after I finished installing the new wheels and Toyo tires on the current truck project. Any pics would be appreciated.

The black grill does look very darn nice. It actually blends in beautifully! What's next on the list ??

Probably will finish off the rest of the chrome. I was debating on doing the pieces around the fog lights but probably will look better if I do. It's a lease so most likely that's as far as I'll go since it's removable. I also replaced the Jeep emblem on the back with a black one
