    So I'm trying to figure out what products to use to paint my lower valance on my 06 SSM...
    Post up your pics and what products you used to do the mod.

    Thanks

    BUMP...

    I've read that the Plastidip may peel when pulling off the masked areas?

    simple solution is to lightly cut w. a razorblade along the tape edge. or just spray it on, cut where you want it to end, and peel off the excess

    Then Put up the paper for overspray taping it to the edge tape so it stuck real good. Sanded with 800 grit block and wiped down with water and soap then alcohol

    Then sprayed Rustoleom black auto primer with 4 coats (1 light, 2med, 1light) then did my OD Green (2 light, 3med, 2light)

    Henced my Infideled-out Taco. Matches badges, emblem, and scoop plus interior

    I just got some black vinyl and cut it to size that way you dont have to sand and paint anything. Plus it looks like you painted it. Good luck!

    plasti dip, thats what i did. if you dont like it its easy to take off. just wipe the area your going to paint with a rag and some rubbing alcohol then peel the tape off after about 30 min and youll be fine.

    So I think I'm going to Line-x the valance. I am leary of using the vinyl as I rear ended an old lady last year and put a little kink in the right side, so I'm thinking the vinyl will develop an air bubble...

    Mine is Vinyl....... When/if i do it again I will be using plasti-dip. I am hesitant to change it though because the semi-gloss matches my satoshi.
