Anyone done any customizing to their Navigator (2018+)?

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

Just curious if anyone has done much customizing to their Navigator. We are thinking of powder coating the wheels and possibly making some of the chrome pieces black as well. Trying to decide what might look best. I want to get a black label badge for the side and black LINCOLN badging for the back as well. We decided we didn't like any of the interiors on the Black Label enough to warrant paying for it.

We will likely do Platinum White w/Cappuccino interior. I would ideally like the Reserve Package as I'd like to have the top end stereo, but I really like the "Select" rims the best of all of them and think they'd look best powder coated. I really don't like the optional 5 spoke rim, but think it might look OK in black/charcoal? Any opinions there?

Attached are the PVC black chrome Reserve rim and optional 5 spoke rim.

Great topic!  I too am considering a Navigator but do not like all of the chrome. Hopefully you get some good feedback.

I like both in black.  I like the select wheels but the reserve packaging.  If i could and got what you got and doing what your doing, id sell the stock wheels and get 22in f150 ltd wheels and vlack those out.

There is a video floating around of a Black ‘18 Navigator that got a matte wrap, the chrome blacked out, powder coated wheels, and the brake calipers powder coated red.  It looks great!  I’ll see if I can find the link.

Here’s another one of the same Navigator but a little more explanation:

Satin grey should be a factory color - that looks fantastic.

Wow thanks you guys! That video makes me feel a little better about the standard Reserve rims in black. I still think the Select rims would look even better. Agreed, that satin gray color looks awesome!

Agreed, satin + blacked out chrome is sharp.

We did a little on the inside by adding in some carbon fiber.  I think it came out great-

I do like that carbon fiber trim! I am really worried about how this piano black crap is going to look in about 3 months. Not sure where this trend came from. Looks nice for a very short while and is trashed in no time in my experience.

Have been checking around to do some customization. I think I am going 15% tint all the way around (adding something like 25% to the rear to even it out best as possible). I plan to black out the grille and all of the chrome as well. I hope to make the side badge look like the black label badging. I am going to powder coat the wheels as well. Hoping this all turns out OK and doesn't look too over the top. The trusted shop I talked to was a little nervous about their ability to wrap the grille but I have seen quite a few done online now.

Thanks everyone for all the input!

I had piano black trim in my Fusion for 7 years and never had a problem.
