Your Jeep turned out nice, the interior is impressive and the black tires make it pop. Keep up the good work.

That is one beautiful Jeep!!!!!!!!!
As all have said the interior is wonderful, love your color chooses and style.

Can we get a couple a shots from a better angle of the tires PLEASE!!!
Their so black it’s hard to really see the details.
And I’m with Ducky I love to see a great wheel and tread design.

Excellent detailed job! All the best words for that work. Color contrast realy emphasises shapes and contours.

A nice piece of work Bruce. Great interior and with nice wind screen wipers. This isn’t a car from 70 miles in a hour but 1 car in 70 hours.

Great job BB. Might have taken 58 hours but seems like 6 months in the “making”... however, well wotrth the wait.

All you guys are getting more and more fanciful/detailed so that it’s hard too keep up. Beaut detail in the interior… is that a BIG “sun roof” or did you use your memory encapsulator before gluing the roof on?

Agree with Dutchy about the wipers which give the front-on that additional layer of class.

Have you tried ebonising? Like you I prefer to paint my wheels black as I cannot seem to get that vinegar and iron concoction to make my tyres dark enough… must be the timber I’m using as some timber ebonises better than others… Having said that, Dutchy and PJonesy seem to have successfully surrendered to their dark side!
