I did an install video on just how easy it is to install LED's into the JL's with the stock halogen headlights. These Hikari's have a great beam pattern and a great price point. Check out the video here.
Left side is the original Halogen, and right is the Hikari Ultra's. Nice cut-off...
I used it on my plastic fender just fine, and my rubber hood stops. It didnt last long on the rubber, but I would say its safe for vinyl. I will be able to check soon as im going to apply some vinyl to my Jeep and I will test with the spray.
Great writeup! I think I need to buy a buffing machine to really take things to the next level on my coat. I have a bit of swirls in my paint and the only way to really take them down is to use a buffer.
Very good. Its like Teflon for your paint. With a proper coating, the bugs should just wash right off if they stick at all. If you watch the end of my video, a bird dropped a turd on my hood, and it beaded up like water and rain washed it away.
One thing I forgot to say in the video is if you drop your clay bar, toss it out. Dont risk dragging an embedded rock across your paint. Not worth it. Also check your clay often, so you dont make extra swirl marks. Would love to see the results of the Wolfgang Ceramic spray!
I dont know as I never used Seal and Shine. From the reviews online, it seems that the seal and shine will resist chemicals better, but nobody has done a long term test. As I said in my video, my ceramic coat did last for 3 months before I re-applied a new coat for the video, but I live near...
Just some Rustoleum from a rattle can. Make sure to scuff the surface up really well with a scotch bright pad, mask out the screw holes after taking off the hardware, and use primer. So far its working well.
Thanks for the suggestion. Im considering some old style tube bumpers. They cost $250 and I had a set on my old 1988 Wranger for nostalgia, but these do look nice and are at a good price point!
My solution. I purchased a 7 pin hitch connector and wired it into that. This way I can unplug it when I tow something. Very clean and bright! In total, it only ran me $50 for the entire install. I made a video of it if anyone wants to do the same.
As they say, "to each their own". Personally, I love the way my Ocean Blue looks, and wash it almost every week. Right now with the trees dumping pollen on my Jeep its driving me insane! Dont get me wrong, jeeps gonna get dirty, but thats not excuse to having it look nice ;) I ceramic coated...
