Sorry for the crappy cellphone pic.


Broke one of the plastic shoulders doing it. Whuups! Ended up linering that too.

Where did you end up getting EZ liner. I was wanting to hit my skid plate with that and then later when my sliders get enough dings in them to start pulling off the powder coating, I was gonna hit them with that.

Well, I'm in canada. Got it at Canadian Tire.

BUT

"toyotadude5" actually did his hole rocker panels, fender flares, etc with the stuff and he's in the USA. Maybe shoot him a PM.

Here is his truck:


In the USA there are more options too. Rustoleum, and..at least one other aerosol option.

Good luck!

Got around to doing my bull bar today...




I'm gonna take off all the decals and possibly black headlight mod.

Also hardwired the gps to the truck and fixed the overhead temp/compass gauge. Been a busy day.

great looking dips guys!

anyone know how white the white dip is? would it be at all equivalent to "super white"?

im thinking about doing my grill surround and rear bumper in white. im also a little concerned about it staining. but yeah, just curious if white was ever used to match.

thanks.

I guess it depends on how picky you are, and how it wears over time.
Its pretty close, but not perfect.
I didn't do the best job of application. and taping the grille was a pain, but at least I found out that I would like a color matched grille. The edges came out pretty crappy where the paint met the tape too. but i can just peel it of or re-do it!

You think if you put some gloss clear it'd brighten up a little? I know it'd take away from the "easy off" appeal of plasti-dip but maybe spray your test piece and see.
