I purchased an additional grill from eBay and had it hydro dipped to look like carbon fiber. I’m very pleased with the result. It’s fairly durable and cleans as easy as the painted grill it replaced. My Jeep now has a new look and so does my office. The original orange crush grill got a new home on my wall. It’s a win-win.

The hydro-dipping process is pretty neat. The surface is completely covered and there isn’t any seams like you’d get with vinyl. The carbon fiber even has a slight wave to it like real carbon fiber. It appears genuine at a fraction of the cost.

    I’ve hydro dipped things in the past they hold up ok but I was just wondering how this has held up to car washes and climate changes in general?

    • It looks just like the day I installed it. I take of it like i would the paint and keep a pretty healthy coat of synthetic polymer wax (Meguiars Ultimate). It’s seen it’s fair share or show, ice, salt, rain and heat. Overall, I quite pleased with it’s durability.

    Where do you get something hydrodipped? And roughly what was the cost to have it done?

    • These guys do good work:

      Prices vary based on labor, material selection, amount of material used and shipping cost. It’s best to request an estimate because prices vary greatly.
