Couple of updated pics! 馃馃槑馃憤
Nice, looks like you and I shop at the same aftermarket LED light store, haha. Ali Express?

(obviously still have the protective plastic on them) One day I'll actually get this mounted on the Compass too! :rolleyes:

But I finally got around to hyperdipping the emblems (going for a full chrome delete when done) and installing the mopar window air deflectors this past weekend, so at least progress in actually being made. This will actually be next most likely. I'd like to knock out the vvivid wrap to the lights to smoke them out first, but I'm worried about damaging it when installing the bull bar, so we'll see...

Really wanted to take some pics to finally post after I washed her today, but as soon as I was done and taking her on a drying-drive on the 407.....yep, big thunder storm. Should have expected it, I did the rain dance afterall, lol.

No Ali express ... Just eBay, amazon N some other online stores
I hear ya, I use Amazon, etc. a bunch as well. But a lot of their stuff (esp in this category) are just being resold or even drop-shipped from Ali vendors, so if I'm in no rush then I don't mind saving a bit of $ and getting them directly. They don't have the awesome free returns that Amazon Prime offers though, sadly.

What A difference make a can of black plasti dip and red vinyl letters/numbers decals
Man, I Hyperdipped my emblems about a week and a half ago, and the only part that really gave me heartburn was the "x" in the "4x4". The way they beveled it for the 3D effect leads each end of the "x" to terminate in a very acute point, and the dip just did not want to hold. Did the proper cleaning, tack layers, rest time in-between, and waited for the perfect temp/humidity, all to no avail. Any good tips from your experience?
