My bright metal gas tank is hugely visible under my rear bumper. I've noticed in pictures that it looks black (or at least darker). What's everyone else's experience? Any ideas on what I might do to make it a little better looking? Paint?
Soltuion 3. Undercoating - if you live on salted roads this would be ideal. Undercoating puts a layer of oil or other protectant on your undercarridge. A line from dukes of hazard jumps to mind here but I'll refrain.
Solution 4: Spash some mud on it...it is a Jeep after all.
Solution 5: Enjoy it - it will only stay shiny so long.
Looking at the picture on the magnaflow site it appears what is visable would be the muffler and not the tank. If this is the case then paint is not an option as the heat of the muffler wouldnt let the paint stay on. Undercoating may be the only way to hide the shinyness. You could get a black powder coat muffler tho...
That is the muffler. Yes it's large! Mine is black from the factory. The Calibers seem to have a bright metal muffler and the Compass' is black. At least that's how all of them have been (the ones I've seen).
