    I plasti dipped my center dash today!
    The guy who had it before me glued all sorts of garbage to it, and it's been all scratched up too; so, I sanded it down and dipped it
    I'm pretty happy how it turned out; actually thinking about doing all of my dash now (the rest is fairly beat up too)

    Am also thinking dipping my rocker panels and the areas above the wheel wells (in place of fender flares)
    Anyone have any idea how well Plasti-dip holds up to brush?
    Am I going to tear it to pieces the first time I take it up a 4-wheeler path in the mountains?

    Nothing new to add, but 'Dipped one of my badges for the heck of it last night.

    4 thin coats... 15 minutes between each coat... wait 15 minutes after last coat and peel.

    So simple, a caveman could do it, and yes... looks awesome! Rest of the badges this weekend. :)

    Did my wheels today. Not sure if I'm crazy about the white letters out but oh well. I can live with it. I didn't mask the tire off or anything. Sprayed them right on the truck. Enjoy

    Did you do the garbage bag method to spray them? I'm debating doing my wheels, but have no ability to remove and spray them.

    I have used the garbage bag method on a few separate occasions and it is very easy.
