    All I did was tape up calipers and drums and anything to deal with the brakes. Didn't tape up the tires either. And I agree it was very easy and quick!

    I have been waiting to do the same to my truck...did you remove the grill or just put something behind it to keep the plasti dip off the radiator?

    Did you do anything to the chrome bumper before spraying it?

    With 20k miles on my 2012 Taco, its time to do plastic dip.

    Do I have to sand the steel wheels? Also do the stuff last if I get the rims wet in salt water? I launch my jet ski about twice a month.

    What brand of Plastic dip to use? I am reading some threads but not sure:p

    No you do not have to sand your wheels just wash them with something like dawn.
    Not sure about the salt water as long as you get a good coat it shouldn't matter.

    Plasti dip is made by performix and is about $6 a can at home depot and lowes

    I think I started one of these Plasti dip threads... Anyhow, I'm going on 2 years on the wheels, bumper, and grill. Offroading, mudding, playing in deep snow. I have a few tiny nicks on a couple wheels and the grill from bugs that I've been to lazy to fix, but other than that, still looks great and going strong!

    Left the grille on and just masked off around it. Prep was just cleaning it real well, I use electrical connector cleaner - seems to work just find and that's what I had on hand. Then start sprayin!

    Thanks. I reallly am not a fan of chrome especially with white. I am actually about to go outside now and spray my rear bumper white too.

    Thanks. I'm just waiting now to get my tires so I can mount the new wheels

    Oh and the paint is almost a perfect match. I just need to get a good wash and wax on the car and I doubt you would even be able to tell a difference besides the plastidip is obviously matte finished

    Bought pink plasti dip. And dipped my emblems. And did the tires with just a pink marker. Came out pretty cool. Truck is a little dirty in the pics. And the pink looks a little dark in pics. It came out pretty good. And very pink haha.
