    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.

    Managed to locate a store that carries this but they charge $20 per can.

    Is it 1 or 2 cans for front valance? Thanks.

    Dude, thats a rip off! Buy it at Lowes, its under $6 a can.

    And you only need one can for the front valance.

    Yep, but everything costs 3x as much in Canada :(.

    I still have about a 1/3 - 1/2 of a can from last year when I did my badges and bought one more today. Should be enough then.

    ^^ Damn dude. If you were in Calgary, I'd sell you a can of mine. I just went down to the US and picked up dozen cans for under $80. XD

    Did the front valance yesterday. All from the same can I did the badges last year. Even touched up a rock chip in the Toyota emblem. Did not use the new can I bought at all. Just did not want to tape everything and than ran out, but I guess my estimate was way off... :facepalm:

    Looks ok, but I think it would look better if I get rid of the bug deflector.

    I am going to re-paint mine this weekend and had watched the videos on how to spray them without removing from the truck. I noticed that your lug nuts aren't black though. What did you do to keep them from getting painted? I don't mind them being black, but i know that the dip will rub off when i rotate the tires.

    mine have been rotated once and taken off for various things about 4 times with the dip on and really the only one messed up is the locking nut because of the key. the other thing is the barrel around the nut gets scrapped from the socket especially when using the impact gun

    FINALLY got around to doing my fenders and wheels, did the fogs and front valance a while back. Did a few of the badges but then decided against it, need a little chrome to offset things.

    Did u take the badges off before you sprayed? Or is it easy to peel off between the gaps? Anyone who's done this feel free to help, thanks

    Didn't remove them. Just mask off around them leaving about 3/4" space around the emblem. I sprayed 4 coats. The first being a light one then building it thicker each time. I waited about 12 minutes between coats. Once dried, the dip on the truck will peel right off if you put it on thick enough. The dip inside the "o" in Toyota for example can easily be be removed with a toothpick and won't scratch your finish. Very easy to do. Good luck
