    Awesome, I figured that, but I haven't been under there and looked yet, so I figured I would ask. When I take it off, I am gonna scrape as much rust as I can off everything that I can get a wire brush at.....then coat it in rustoleum or some sort of rust killer. I have seen it without the bumper when I had some body work done. I went to pick it up and they weren't done (even though they told me they were) and I saw it without bumper, My hitch has a lot of rust on it.

    I am wanting a pretty thick coat on it, so I will probably do 2 cans on it. I also plan on doing a part of my hood, my wheels, and my dash surround around my head unit at the same time this summer

    I was also thinking about doing my mirrors, since they are fading. They look good when I use mother's back to black, but it doesn't last as long as I want.

    I dipped....

    [​IMG]

    You can't tell unless you're up close, but I'm gonna do another can... the edges didn't get a good coat.... Plus I plan on doing the rear bumper and the center of the lower valence, so I figure that's a nice round 6 cans (to a case) to order...

    I swear I saw somewhere where I could order a case at $24.... gonna have to remember where I saw that at now

    keep in mind that the more coats you put, the easier it will come off. try not to go past 3/4 coats (this is after you have laid the first primer coat, spraying enough to get the surface corse enough for the dip to apply itself, if you have something to test the dip on, you will see how it won't apply itself to the object your trying to dip with the first spray).

    most guys don’t take it off. most just tape it off with painters tape. and i think most are using 1 can.

    Wrong.

    If you paint over rust it continues to rust under the paint and will spread causing the paint to bubble and eventually eating all the way though.

    I think he is talking about my hood

    I already know about the rust
    I will use a drill and wire brush and get off a much rust as possible. The. A rust killer

    Then coat it, though I may get something different than plasti dip

    I found some stuff that is the same but harder to take off (I wouldn't put it on car paint, but undercarriage should be fine)

    i know that. i thought he was plasti dipping it not painting. yes paint you have to clean all the rust. also did not know his bumper had rust.


    i don’t think most guys take it off to plasti dip they just tape it off.

    Please post pics, cause I am trying to figure out what to do with my chrome bumper. Once my homertaco grill comes in soon, my rear bumper will be the only chrome on my truck.
