Just mask it off as if you were painting. Then score the edge with a razor before peeling the tape.

The idea of using a razor on my truck scares the hell out of me. I have come across the suggestion to use layers of tape, peeling off 1 layer after each coating of dip. The suggestion called for using something like electrical tape so each layer would not peel off the tape underneath. The issue with that, I would imagine, would be having to get each layer of tape lined up perfectly.

Pb blaster eats plasti dip like candy. Wd40 does pretty good too. If you tape and spray and it dries too far to peel the tape carefully putting blaster on the tape with a brush eats the dip and it wont peel. I did it once worked good but I just try to work fast and peel the tape before it sets up on small projects. Razor works well too but it takes finess. Getting clean lines on the dip without a gap is kinda a pain in the butt. I have thought about using foam weather strip on top of painters blue tape then peeling it off but I habe not tried it yet.

Tape off the edge of the hood, then as you put down layers of plasti dip make sure to put 1 or 2 light coats on the edge (where the tape is) until the end. That way once when the center part of the hood is fully coated you can go back and put 2-3 layers all at once around the edge. Before the edge dries make sure to pull up the tape. You get perfect strait lines and even coats every time. Practice first if you need, but it's actually very easy.

I finally bought my first can of Plasti-dip while I was at Lowes yesterday. I'm debating what I should try first. Should I derp the front grill surround and leave the Toyota emblem chrome or derp that too? I'm not sure how much I will have left after I do that, just wanted to try it out and then go from there it comes out pretty good.

Patience. Remove them, bake them, pry apart, paint, assemble, and then seal. The most important part is the sealing. Use a bathroom/kitchen or aquarium sealant (one that dries clear). Just make sure you take your time with the sealing, that's where most mess up. As far as a cure time, let them sit for a few hours before re-installing them and try not to get them too wet for a 24 hour period so the sealant has plenty of time to cure all the way. If sealed properly they won't leak for years. All in all, it can be done in a day.

I searched through about 50 pages of this thread and searched the entire forum without any luck on this particular request. Not sure how I feel about it. Part of me thinks it might look pretty badass with the hood, grill, bumper, and valence blacked out.
Have you thought about the gunmetal instead of black? It might go better with your blue.
