2018 Trailhawk Spitfire Orange

Greetings, on other boards I've done this before with other "builds" as I customize my ride. There isn't a lot available for a Compass so alterations to it have proven complicated thus far but wanted one spot to put all the changes I have made to it. It's still very new, only 3 weeks old right now starting at 10 miles on the odometer. I don't have a name quite yet. I did custom order it with the following specs:

Trailhawk, Pano Sunroof, Towing Package, Leather Interior, Beats Sound, Safety and Security Group

This is the first day I got it. You can see my traded in Renegade in the background. I sidegraded for a lot of bells and whistles. No regrets!

Dipped Wheels

The first technical addition was to a blindspot mirror but almost immediately after that, I plasti-dipped the wheels. This is black undercoat with Black Sapphire coats. Took about 3 hours total.

Madico UV block Tint - 2 front + sunroof

Living in Texas, things heat up. It was the first thing I noticed when driving was how hot the windows were and the vehicle was struggling to cool. I couldn't even open the sunroof because it was too hot on my head. I used the first real money for upgrades on tint. This is the good stuff. I simply wanted to match the back to the front and reduce the heat inside the vehicle. I'm insanely happy and can tell a MASSIVE difference. Though pictures can't really express the change, this is a truly incredible investment. Purchased Madico Wincos 30 PS SR

My purchase was strikingly similar to your. I traded in a 2017 Renegade for a 2018 Compass Trailhawk. I just had to have 4wd and that pano roof. What did the tinting end up costing you? What does the Rhino coat do to the plastic?

Got the same one. Tint is key.... I do not have the pano sunroof though. Too damn hot here in the desert.
