Black Patriot with Red Accents?

Has anyone done anything like that before? I've got a black 2008 with chrome emblems and black door handles/mirrors/etc. I want to add a red color scheme; maybe painting the emblems red, getting matte black rockstar rims with red accents (like a red star or red spokes), splatter painting the plastic around my radio red (it's currently black carbon fiber, I'd just splatter red over that), black/red seat covers, and maybe doing two red grille inserts on one side. I've seen all of these things done to patriots and other Jeeps, but never all to the same Jeep.

Have any of you done all (or any) of these mods (pics please!)? Would you recommend all/some of it? I want my Patriot to be unique.

Thanks,
Adam

Sounds cool. You could always use plasti dip and just peel it off if you don't like the outcome.

I think you should test out the look. Go for it.

It is your rig so you can do whatever you want. I agree on using plastidip since it is reversible.

Just started on the red look tonight - made my emblems red with an off-brand plastidip (local store didn't sell the real deal) and also tinted my tail lights + front turn signals. I wasn't gonna do that part yet but I had to replace a bulb anyways so figured I'd tint them while they were off. I'll post pics tomorrow :P

I think the next step will be to figure out some way to make my rims red. I've got the rims in this pic but I painted the inner grey star black. I might paint the insides of the 5 triangle things red and finish off the rest of the rim with black (like the third pic).

The rims I have: https://static.cargurus.com/images/s...2-640x480.jpeg

How I'm thinking about doing my rims: https://s31.postimg.org/3rwi27jrf/Sc...0_42_40_PM.png
