Hey Everyone, I was going to trade it in but the trade-in value was too low, so i decided to take a few day's and glaze it, then detail. Enjoy Fella's

Paint would be a completely different look... I just removed mine completely, and I love the look of it. I would be interested in seeing it that glossy black though.

Looking good. Nice and shiny. I also took off the plastic piece below the fascia. Just turn the knobs on the back side and it comes off. It's really easy.

Generally not a fan of this style, but I like this one. Well done!

I am curious as to which glaze you used, and did you do the process of wash, clay, wax then glaze? I would love to get a finish that smooth just once.

What's the fascination with removing the air dam? It leaves an unfinished look when you remove it, and it takes away a lot of the structural integrity when it's removed. Your fascia is flopping in the wind with it gone.

Shiney, looks good. Do you still have the lowering springs on?

That is not my choice of look for a jeep (or any 4wd for that matter) but I must admit, that does look pretty sharp.

That's not true at all....

It doesn't look bad at all and I haven't heard any noise from it flopping. I don't think it flops due to the angle. There's pics in the link below that show the difference between one that's on and off. It also appears to give the front a little higher stance with it removed.

Uh, yes it is. I took mine off for a few minutes while doing something else and it loosened up the bottom portion of the fascia considerably. And, it's only your opinion that it looks better with the piece missing, but you also think a Jeep with 30" wheels look good. So, I'll take your opinions with a grain of salt.
