    Heres mine...came out pretty good considering I spent $15 for 3 cans of PlastiDip.
    I do still need to clean my taco...those damn bugs!

    Thanks man, yea the eyelids do look alittle off with the grill. The plastidip came out more of a flat black, but its temporary until i get it color matched and do the satoshi mod.

    Thanks!

    Thanks bro, yea just take your time and dont rush it. I did one light first coat, then the second i tried to hit all the small hard to get areas. Third coat was pretty heavy and since it dried so fast i went for the 4th coat and it looked great.

    It looks great. I can't get a can of that stuff anywhere here in my city. I think its harder to get in Canada

    My only concern would be how well it'll hold up down there. But it looks really good

    If I can ever find some cans I'll be doing this :)

    Looks good, not a huge fan of the eyelids either though. Or the tinted tails. But that's just me!

    Can't believe plastidip is so cheap in the US... here it's $20 a can (tax included).

    I did mine too. im surprised how durable it is. I just pressure washed my truck and the plastidip stayed on even with the nozzle about 10" away from the rim itself. Looks great man.

    How are the plastidip wheels holding up? I am thinking about doing my bumper and wheels. Can I buy this stuff at homedepot, lowes, walmart?
