    I just ordered some anthracite plastidip. 2 cans of that color and 1 can of glossifier for the rear bumper. I kept going back and forth on the color, because I didn't realize that there was a gunmetal plastidip too.

    After contemplating for a few hours and checking out the different pics and an actual pic of my FJ Anthracite wheels, I decided that neither color exactly matched, but the new plastidip anthracite was closer. We'll see when it gets here I suppose. Definitely better than chrome.

    I think I'm going to get the chrome ones to make my wheels look better lol. I'll just have to peel around the fake bolt heads.

    Lol, I meant the step pads, the hard plastic trim. I want to get the derp up and under it for a nice finish

    I know we're talking about the plastic but wd40 works like a charm to remove over spray

    Neither, I have chrome (TRD O/R) and I'd like it to match as closely as possible the FJ wheels I have. I would have tried the Aluminum colored derp, because I have S/S Mica, but I didn't want to blow a whole wad on two cans of derp I'd maybe never use. As it stands now, 3 cans of derp and shipping is just shy of $40, 2 additional cans would have pushed me near $60!

    This is key. Once it covers everything, you have to put down a few more coats.

    Ive thought about getting some of the anthracite stuff and doing my badges that instead of the black. My wheels are grey, might as well have the badges match.

    Alright so I am definitely going to dip my stock rims to begin blacking out my ride. I'm wondering if anyone has used the metallic plasti dip? More specifically, the anthracite. Also, what the hell is this glossifier stuff I hear about every now and then? Do I use that on top of the regular matte black dip to add some shine?

    Ordered up 4 cans of anthracite and 2 cans of glossifier last night. Do you guys think that will be enough to do all 4 wheels plus my front grill and side badges?

    I've considered doing the color match, but I'm still torn. I think I'm going to wait for a month or so and see if the black grows on me.

    Also thought about the lower valence but wanted to see how it looked with the off-road lights installed. I've been looking for another pyrite mica with blacked out lower valence but haven't found one yet...

    Thanks for the compliments!

    Its should be. I used like 2.5 cans for the wheels and the badges don't take much. The grille took maybe .75 can
