    Has anyone here used the white Plasti Dip? Wondering if it yellows after a while in the sun

    Yup! I dipped some angry eyelids on my truck a few months back to see if I wanted to get eyelids. It turned out pretty good so I just kept it on, no fading or yellowing.

    Not the best pictures, but you get the idea.

    :(Had to peel off my driver side emblems because of a little tear on the side of the "A". For some reason the driver side emblem has been a pain to me. Every time I finish derping I always seem to find something wrong with the dip; The rest of the emblems were perfect. Sighs:frusty:

    I buy mine at lowes. I think it was $5.98.

    Price isn't really a concern when 1/3 a can did my lower bumper insert a few posts up.

    Probably another can or 2 and I can do all my badges, rear bumper and all 4 wheels

    First look down below the foglights and you will see a blue clip on each side that holds the bumper tabs in, You have to push the tab in then pull it out.

    Then towards the bottom of the bumper insert there are 2 clips built into it that go through the bumper cover. These can be seen also from behind and you just push them up while pushing the insert forward.

    Last, open the hood and look down to the top of the bumper insert. There are 5 or 6 more clips built into the bumper insert that when they go through the bumper they pop up. push them down while pulling out on the bumper insert and work your way across and it should pop right out.

    The whole bottom edge of the insert has push in tabs too. Pull down and towards the front and they pop out.


    I went out to see if it was removable and a few minutes later walked away with the insert in hand. Pull on the front then look at the back to see what's holding it. Looks 1000 times better black and matching the grill.

    Just did the emblems tonight!
