I don't fully understand the parts you chose to plasti dip. But Rad reds need to stick togather...

Why not just paint the entire truck black?

Nice Truck! I've actually been searching for a while to see if anyone has done the entire front end and hood with Plastidip. How is it holding up? Did you also use the clear coat on it as well?

I have Rad Red 08 and the front end is starting to look rough. Will eventually get it painted. It's got quite a few chips in the paint. Hood scoop is also loosing clear coat and I dipped it just last week.

Thanks! The front bumper only had a few coats so after a year its got some small holes. Hood and everything's good though, no clear coat on any of it either.
