Did you get that hood decal online and put it on by yourself or from a local shop and they did it? I'm looking to get one to stand out from the other compasses but I can't settle on anything at the moment. I dig the mountains, I was looking at American flags, Sasquatch, bald eagles and all kinds of other stuff and I just can't make up my mind.
I mostly order from eBay, amazon and online vinyl decals website N I do all work myself, I like to learn about the process... ✌😎

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

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?
I used alcohol to clean the letters/numbers and used 3-4 coats of plasti dip, N give it 10-15 in between ea coat, hopefully that will help
