    Hey guys, just spent the last 2 hours searching these and other forums but have not found what I am looking for. Also read through about 60 pages in the plasti-dip thread and all I got out of it is an eye headache so please don't flame me if pics or info is floating around somewhere... Anyways......

    I am curious what the front end of my 08 speedway blue would look like blacked-out with plasti dip. I know opinions differ on dip but this is exactly what I would want as I do not want it to be permanent. I kind of think it might look bad ass to go along with black rims. Anyone come across anything like this? Pictures??

    Attached is the look I am curious to see. This is my quick photoshopped effort on a google image of a speedway blue I found. Thanks in advance for any thoughts/pictures/thread recommendations!

    I don't know if I like it or not. I would have to see it on the actual truck. If you do it, please derp just in case you hate it so you don't ruin your truck. lol

    you could always spray it out over clear coat and all no prep and if you don't like it you can just peel it off.

    i think it would look alright if you do the top of the cab as well and put on a clean looking chrome or black grill
