had a local guy paint the fenders and hard top of my new Sport S, got a pretty decent deal. Everything for $1100. He had to do a lot of prep work and I’m not sure if he made any money on the deal but it’s exactly what we wanted and he did a great job. My wife wanted the ‘sahara’ look but I didn’t want to pay forthe extras.

Fenders look great. Any issues with the paint yet, cracking or chipping?

They look original. Thinking about LineX instead on the fenders,

No problem at all, looks like new. I've only had it for a month though, but seems to be holding up well

Not sure how Line X looks, or its texture my painter sanded down the fenders and top and was able to basically match the glossy finish of the body paint. It matches perfectly.

Love the lower trim paint on the fenders. Looks good.

Could you possibly send pics of what the front looks like. I am thinking about doing this but I am curious of what it will look like from the front?

Looks great! I might have to do that to my white sport. I was thinking of just doing my fenders and leaving the roof black.

I want painted fenders as well but I'm going to hold off until I can get some Rubicon fenders or something from the aftermarket.

Wow.....just looks absolutely amazing! Before I bought my red JLU Sport, I asked a body shop about this idea. He said “take off the fenders, bring ‘em over and I’ll take care of them.”

Bought the JL in November and I’ve been itching to do this! Curious about painting the black texture vs the sand down/gloss though....

That looks incredible. That's exactly the look I want (Sahara on a Sport Budget). Would love to get an update on how they are holding up. Also interested in your wheel/tire size and lift height (or no lift?). LOVE the stance!
