    If the plasti dip gods really like you they will allow you to have it in chrome. Painting the tail pipe with chrome plasti dip is sweet.

    For my purpose (blacking out the emblems) it did great. No mess and easy to apply. Will it last long? Only time will tell. Like many said if its something you want permanently painted, spend the extra money and get it done right but for me, it worked like a charm.

    Looks great. I may do my valance today. How did you tale off the area and then peel the dip for a clean edge?

    I used newspaper to cover the border ansd taped the paper on the opposite side so the dip wouldn't get caught in the tape. I worked really well.
    My brother used painters tape on his Rav4. He peeled it off when the plasti-dip was went. That method worked well for him too. Here is his Rav.

    Found a better picture. It's hard to describe but I later took off the skid plate because it was a pain.

    I did the valance today and the grille emblem. Not sure about the black emblem but like the valance. Either way, the chrome is gone. The Cat plate is stainless steel...ss is allowed lol

    p.s. I didn't mean to capture my legs in the pic lol

    I wouldn't do it without tires already on. When the tire is put on, there is something that needs to go around the lip of the rim in order to get the tire on which will definitely tear up the dip.
