    The number 1 thing you can do to get a smooth application is to soak the can in hot water prior to spraying. It doesn't matter if it's 90 degrees outside, soak the can in as hot of tap water you can get, makes a huge difference. Keep soaking in between coats. Also, shake the can for a full minute at least.

    If you're looking for a smoother application, preheat the can in hot tapwater and keep it warm between coats.

    Looks great! I've got a QS like yours, and that's exactly what I'm going to do to mine....both the grill as well as the side mirrors. Plus the badges on side and back. Your truck blends in perfectly there in the forest!
    Is that the Gila NF?

    im gonna start out by plasti dipping all emblems ( this will be my first experience with it) , then do grille, and move on to wheels and bumper. From what I've read people are pleased with plasti dip.. trying to decide on doing matte black wheels and either color toyota center cap red, leave chrome, or black out. I have a 17 TRD off road, silver sky metallic, so red, blackout, or chrome center cap on wheels would look good. I kind of like the small accent of the red on the wheels though

    i have never seen plastidip spray like this. i have used it many times on my wheels and never seen it clump or separate so much. it sprays on just like spray paint. was it super cold where you were when spraying?
