    Ok I've read a lot of the threads about dippin a bumper and I think I'm gonna give it a shot. I have a couple of questions though... Are most people spraying or doing a roll on application? And how much does it take? One coat, two, twelve? Do tell.....:D

    I have used plasti dip a lot and you will be able to use one can. All you need is 3 coats of it and you will be good.

    Are you talking about your front or rear bumper? Either way use the spray cans. One can should cover the whole bumper. I did three medium coats. Dont expect perfect coverage first coat, you get that with the second and third coats. and dont let people tell you it will peel off and only use real paint. Clean the bumper, and wipe it down with alcohol first and you will be fine. my bumpers badges and wheels have held up great for over a year now and yea I wheel and take it through the car wash.

    Scuff it up for adhesion purposes then spray can it until you are satisfied with the coverage. Makes sure you keep the can the recomended distance from the bumper so it doesn't clump or run. Also tape up what you dont want painted.

    The Plasti dip works ok, but it doesn't last very long..I did my Tacmoa logo's and what not, did 4 coats, followed directions.. Was getting some mud off my truck and it was peeling off the logo's..
