Dude. I want to try the anthracite. Where do you get it? Does it peel off like the other plasti dip?

Dipped the grill surround today. Happy with the dip itself but not sure how I feel about the color with the truck. Thoughts?

You can only get those colors in the video from dipyourcar.com. Looks like they have an exclusive with plasti dip for them. I'm ordering a can tomorrow, and if its plasti dip I'm positive it peels off.

I actually think that looks awesome. Maybe do the lower valence and pull the whole thing together

What you can also do is get some white (doesn't necessarily have to be white) plastidip, and just spray paint whatever the heck color you want right on top of it.
If plastidip happens to have the exact color you want, this would obviously be an extra expense and step

oh? I've never actually done it; just heard some folks that have suggested it.
would be an option if you're really after a specific color that plastidip doesn't have; but, yeah, that's the only reason I would think to do it

You guys are going to make me do this, aren't you?
The results look good, good enough for me to do my skeewp and little ridge at the back of the hood for reflections. May be a big fat stripe up the hood.
Just clean well and mask and paint?
Picked up a can of flat black from the Depot... way nervous, it peels right off, right?

sure thing!
you should really read those tips before you start
I would especially take into consideration not letting the plastidip set-up before you remove any taping, cause it'll peel right up with the tape, and you'll have to spend all sorts of time with a razor blade and straight edge if you want a clean line (ask me how i know )

I just ordered some anthracite plastidip. 2 cans of that color and 1 can of glossifier for the rear bumper. I kept going back and forth on the color, because I didn't realize that there was a gunmetal plastidip too.

After contemplating for a few hours and checking out the different pics and an actual pic of my FJ Anthracite wheels, I decided that neither color exactly matched, but the new plastidip anthracite was closer. We'll see when it gets here I suppose. Definitely better than chrome.

I know we're talking about the plastic but wd40 works like a charm to remove over spray
