I'm sure it is a lot better coverage, but you could get away with 3/4 a can

I heard that as well. From what I heard, this was to give you a thick enough coat to peel off when you're done.

What I'm wondering is, can you do three coats of anthracite and a couple coats of glossifier? Or does the glossifier not provide the thickness you need?

I need some opinions. I've got a BSP Tacoma and I still have a chrome grill, I was thinking about using some plasti dip on the grill and thinking a different color insead of black for the Toyota emblem and the Tacoma emblems on the doors. What color would you go with? How does black plasti dip look with a black truck? I've only seen I think black and white and lowes. Not sure if autozone or o'reillys have any. If I do the grill, would I need to take if off my truck? How hard is it to take off and will I break anything doing so?

old pic but heres what you get with bsp and plastidip grill. colormatch looks better, end of story. but for a quick mod it looked real good. i have more old pics in my gallery. grill is easy to take off. 2 10mm bolts on top and 2 plastic clips attached to the headlights and lift it out. very simple

Yeah it looks too flat to me... but the OP said it was anthracite. I can take some pre-glossifier pics when I do mine

How long did the wheels take and did you take them off or just tape? Looks good!

Lumpskie, did you get a tracking # yet? The one that dipyourcar sent me on the 26th still hasn't been picked up or processed thru UPS yet. I ordered on the 24th too, so this is kinda bullshit.

you have to peel the tape while the dip is still wet, you pretty much have to spray and peel instantly. you have to get the edges of the tape extremely wet beforehand and a nice clean line will result

You can probably get 2 coats out of one taping. Tape off your area, spray the first coat light, 15 min drying, spray a heavier coat, then peel before it dries.

Tape again, spray, dry, spray again, peel tape.
