Clear laquer, stat! Patina is the new candy apple.
Or fake it
My "new to me" before and after pics on my 98. It was pretty "crusty" with spray on vinyl when I got it. Two weeks of steady peeling revealed a decent (but stressed) emerald green paint job. Still stripping away more crust from the interior etc.. but I'm quite a bit happier with the purchase now!
That's like buying an old man's car with the clear vinyl seat covers.
3000 miles on the holdover '18 JL so far, no surprises yet - still happy with the stock suspension and wheels, even. Just added some nets for the dogs, better seat covers, lights, and a RAM ball for the GPS.
Figured I'd do a preemptive oil change, especially since the first handful are free. Plenty of dealers much closer to town, but the one with the best reputation was a little off the beaten path... took 5 different mountain passes, mostly off-pavement to get there and back. Fun day.
Didn't get too many pics, but you get the idea.
Look, shops and especially dealers, don’t (won’t) do anything not on their factory supplied checklist. They don’t think outside the box. You can fix this yourself like I and a few other posters have shown. It will cost about $20 at Home Depot. Should you have to? Philosophically, no. But it’s 2019. Your dealer is likely an incompetent boob. You and a few others on here are acting like millennial snowflakes. Go buy a 4 Runner. You don’t deserve a Jeep.
Yeah, the climate that the dealerships have cultivated is not conducive to their techs doing good work - they seem to get by.
Some of the stories that I have heard from dealerships are pretty brutal, even from the higher end ones.
Holy hell - yeah, I got the idea
Blurry pic - but GREAT color!
Some day I'll see if the 4wd actually works on my Jeep.
Anyone need or want the stock inner fenders and fender flares from a 2016 JKU? I replaced mine with metal aftermaket ones. Also have the stock indicator lights for the front fender (see photo). Free to a good home. If you want them shipped its on your dime.
The fenders on my 2003 TK were looking a bit sun frazzled. Bought some stuff to rejuvenate them. Must be good, it had a jeep on the bottle. Instructions said to apply wait 5 minutes then wipe of excess. After several coats, still no excess to wipe. But it looks a lot better. I thought it was green with grey trim. Turns out the trim is black. Who knew!
How was that to do? I was looking at them a while back when thinking about Metalcloak fenders.
