    So, I've been considering the idea of whether i'd like to have my mirrors, handles, grill, and maybe even my wheels match my Super White 2010 DCSB TRD OR. However, I'd really like to test it out before I commit, and probably run it by the boss before I get evicted to the dog house ;)

    Well, I think I've come up with a way to try it out before I commit permanently. I'm gonna run to the store and pick up one of those cans of window spray-cans that you can write stuff with (I.e. "Just Married", "Homecoming 2010", etc). Then, I'm gonna cover everything with it. I know it wont have the glossy, finished product look that's I would ultimately want, but the basic appearance would be there, and I could just wash it off afterward.

    Side note: I would of course do my best to cover/protect and small cracks and crevices prior to spraying.

    So, does anyone see any error in my thinking? Am I setting myself up for something thats really gonna bite me in the @$$? More importantly, does anyone see any reason this stuff might have an adverse impact on my paint, plastic, or chrome cover plates, or does it clean off fairly easy?

    Man ..... don't use that stuff .... could only lead to troubles in my opinion. Cruise the internet and lots to find examples .... you'll be a better idea.

    Either way .... the choice is up yo you. Good Luck.
