please keep the pix coming in to see the progress. Is the pic the G's current state? or have things progressed beyond this?

Thanks all the friends who suggested various colours, but there was always a colour in my mind & it was black; MATT BLACK.

Here is the second teaser when it was painted with primer the initial coat! More photos to follow!

Sorry for poor photos.

Would it be a good idea to strip the car of its lights and bumpers and all trim before doing such a comprehensive colour change ?

I think the finish may not be as good as the original if such shortcuts happen as flashes of white will be seen in the long term

matt black looks awesome we had once done a sierra with matt black only problem the interiors heat up to unbearable levels and takes ages to cool down keep that in mind.
also the vehicle looks extremely dull if you are not able to give it a wash everyday.

It's already thrown away! Planning to fit a 6" Hella, I will try it at Blore when I go this week. No stock in Calicut!

Thanks, hope I could make it & praying for the same. I've already got a set a good off-road rims & AT tyres!

It's having 3.0L inline 5-cylinder diesel mill under its hood!

It's already stripped off fully, front grille, head light gadding, all beedings, etc. Door pad & others will be removed before entering the paint booth!

I have never been a fan of Geländewagens but after following this thread, I must confess I have become a big fan of it. Your G looks absolutely stunning with the Matte Black paint and will surely stand out from other Jeeps and Hummers of Calicut . I too feel that a nice set of alloys will make it far more appealing. More pics please once you are done with the paint

Hani Matt black looks great now hope you are getting the AMG style 5 spoke black wheels or Brabus Black wheels with All terrain tyres for the car. It would look awsome. Since you removed the rubbers are they good enough for the car or you have to order new ones. Over time they do get cracked and hard. Cant wait for this baby to get ready. All the best.
