    I was able to complete my plasti dip project this weekend. I did my grill and bumpers last week and now I was did my rims. What do you all think?

    How far down did you spray the valence. Can you show a pic of the underside? Just want to see how it looks. I have a lifted truck so people will be able to see it there too...

    Been searching around on here and have found some tacos with its badges blacked out. I had to do it so I bought a can last night for a little over $6.

    What you'll need: Plasti-dip, toothpicks for the letters, Copenhagen, Basspro ads, and some tape. Blow dryer speeds up the process.
    [​IMG]

    Here I just taped everything up really good:
    [​IMG]
    (Not a bad price on those boat seats!)

    I hit it with a good coat and let it set for about 20 or so:
    [​IMG]

    Same with the others:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Then after about 3 coats each, I took the tape off:

    [​IMG]

    Here is where I started to peel off the majority of it, but not with the letters punched out:
    [​IMG]

    This is the finished product. Looks much better than all that chrome:
    [​IMG]

    Learned not to spray too close on the letters because of run. Had to redo two of the letters they peeled off with the tape. Anyways, overall very easy mod to make your truck look much better.

    I would love to do the bumper but im afraid it would just peel off. I am gonna do the grill though. If it looks good ill probably pull it off over time and just sand it down and paint it with a matte black to get the same effect just permanent. I really like how easy this stuff is to use. Just make sure you let it dry well between coats and hit it lightly each coat. I made the mistake of hitting it a little too think and it rounded off the edge between the letter and the tailgate, therefore it peeled off as one piece.

    I need to get new seats for both of my boats. Would be a good time to do that for 40 dollars a seat!

    Thanks man, it turned out much better than I thought it would.

    I did my bumper months ago and so far so good. It hasn't peeled or gotten scratched at all. Hell, I figured for $12 it's worth a shot.
