    No prep? Will it harm the paint? It can't be that easy, it never is:(

    here's a quick write-up:
    remove both fog lights and clean area to be painted (i used simple green)
    tape off edge off fog light area ( i used some very thin tape that i bought from a hobby shop, it looks like pin striping.) then some wide blue painters tape around the thin tape.
    1 can plasti dip, spray one fog light area at a time. as soon as you are done painting remove the tape, if you let the plasti dip dry and then pull off the tape, the paint will come off.
    according to the directions on the can, dry time is 4 hours.
    enjoy!

    I'm going to have to do this on mine. I used the bed liner spray on my blacked out lower valence. I may use it around the fogs too.
