PURRRRRFECT .... the only thing you got left to do is the cover wrap those ugly welds on top of the side step and under the doors .... a black wrap for that area will complete the look

Awesome rig !

oh, can you post some more on that rear bumper?

@Administrator Looks fantastic. Would love any info/tips on removing the grill. I want to paint mine as well but couldn’t figure out how to disconnect the camera.
Also, how did you reapply the letters to the grille?
Thanks

This XPEL PPF ..... did u do the whole hood? Just first foot or so? Hearing paint dings are terrible. What's the cost of XPEL'n the most vulnerable area... and I mean ballpark guesses... like 300 or 1500 etc....

I was quoted $600 for the full hood and $300 each for the front fenders. Grill was $200. So the whole front would be $1400. I'm sure quotes will be around that plus or minus a couple hundred.

Why do people tint their tail lights? It just makes it harder for people to see your brake lights and puts you at a higher chance of getting rear ended. And once you do; the cop will write you a ticket for covering your brake lights. Is it really worth it?
As someone who is a former volunteer firefighter I have to agree with you on that what's the point of it really just to be cool like everyone else safety first

Looks good but you really need a leveling kit for the front end to even it out.

Thank you!! I wasn't sure what the ballpark was. I'm sure it will pay for itself through, being aggravated from rock chips.

To remove the grille simply take out the 9 plastic pop rivets and then remove the plastic shroud. There are 4 x 10mm bolts that hold the actual grille in that need to be removed then you just unclip the wire & water line on the passenger side. The grille then just pulls straight out & viola, you are done!

How do you like the job they did on the painted door handles?

My Xpel installer talked me out of Stealth because he said it would be a PITA to get it to look "perfect", so I'm going Xpel Ultimate Plus.

And before everyone jumps on and says he's lazy, it's the opposite: he's so much of a perfectionist that he won't do things if they aren't flawless. Which is a super PITA in itself. :(

If they look good, maybe I'll switch for my next wrap.
Either way, he can’t get the job done. I’d have gone elsewhere. If it wasn’t a PITA, I wouldn’t be paying someone else to do it.

Beautiful Bronco. Doesn’t look like Aldo M is a forum member, but if you have regular communications with him please ask….

-was the grill painted or wrapped? (Gotta be paint) did he do it himself? If yes, did he rattle can it?
- process to remove and reattach the grill letters?
- Area51 paint? Did Aldo rattle can the letters, or have them professionally painted? If rattle please share paint details.

cheers
Nels
