    Just out of curiosity how do you deal with the inevitable over spray? I plan on just taking off the handles to avoid that but I've heard people just spray it on the car.

    If it lands on paint w/e just clay bar but if it lands on plastic wouldn't it be a massive PITA?

    you could tape it off... or soak a paper or MF towel in goo-gone, and apply to the plasti dip. let it sit for 5-10 mins. re-apply as necessary and keep it wet.
    be very careful not to get it on other plasti-dip items you do not want to remove, as if you accidentally touch it, it may peel (found this out the hard way)
    start at a corner and begin peeling. it should come off much easier than before.
    wash off the excess goo-gone and your done [​IMG]


    btw if you do have some overspray on your car, googone will get rid of it in 2 seconds

    Thanks for the advice man.

    I would mask it all off but I tried to mask off my headlights when I wet sanded them and the wax I used made the tape just slide right off :mad:. It stuck to my unwaxed front bumper but not the fender... The door handles seem super easy to take off too. Just have to do 2 too so meh

    Here is a comparision between the TRD FJ Anthracite gray wheels and the Plastidip anthtracite gray.

    First pic no Plasti
    IMG_0233.jpg


    Plasti applied, one quick spray

    IMG_0235.jpg

    Don't know if you can see it, but this plastidip really has metallic flakes in it, small, but definitely just like spray paint. I know this isn't the best comparo, but I didn't want to get into spraying the whole wheel wedge with derp, just enough to show that it is slightly different than the stock Toyota color. I believe that this Anthracite is much closer in color than the Gunmetal color they also offer. That had more of a primer gray/blue to it, this has more black.

    Thanks for the comparison. I was wondering how the plasti dip anthricite color looked. Does it peel just as easy as regular plasti dip even though it has metal flakes in it? Thanks

    I wonder what the new aluminum color looks like...anybody have any ideas as to whether or not it will match the silver mica paint color? I am thinking about using it on my chrome bumper if it closely matches the silver mica of my truck...

    The metallic derp peels like the original, I was going to get the aluminum derp as well, because I have SS Mica for my truck color, but 3 cans of the anthracite gray and clear was over $40, and I would have had no use for it other than a comparo. Other than this mod of derping the rear bumper, I'm also building my first AR-15, and money is tight for cool shit.

    I decided to plastidip the chrome grill. I think it looks better, but worried how long it will last
