    Anyone black out their front end with dip? Something like the pic I have attached? I found the truck image on google and photoshopped it. Any thoughts?

    I searched through about 50 pages of this thread and searched the entire forum without any luck on this particular request. Not sure how I feel about it. Part of me thinks it might look pretty badass with the hood, grill, bumper, and valence blacked out.

    That looks sweet!! I like the bumper white too, breaks it up a bit. Very cool and unique. Aggressive looking.

    If you did your front end, I would do the hood, lower valence, and roof. I think that would look sick, either way I think you should do your roof, lol. I'd do mine, but it's already black.

    I like your idea but I feel like if I did the hood, I'd have to go all the way back and do the tailgate too. Don't think I want to get that far into it. I do think the roof would be super easy to do. I am kind of unsure how I would go about the hood as far as taping around the scoop...

    Just mask it off as if you were painting. Then score the edge with a razor before peeling the tape.

    The idea of using a razor on my truck scares the hell out of me. I have come across the suggestion to use layers of tape, peeling off 1 layer after each coating of dip. The suggestion called for using something like electrical tape so each layer would not peel off the tape underneath. The issue with that, I would imagine, would be having to get each layer of tape lined up perfectly.

    Pb blaster eats plasti dip like candy. Wd40 does pretty good too. If you tape and spray and it dries too far to peel the tape carefully putting blaster on the tape with a brush eats the dip and it wont peel. I did it once worked good but I just try to work fast and peel the tape before it sets up on small projects. Razor works well too but it takes finess. Getting clean lines on the dip without a gap is kinda a pain in the butt. I have thought about using foam weather strip on top of painters blue tape then peeling it off but I habe not tried it yet.

    Tape off the edge of the hood, then as you put down layers of plasti dip make sure to put 1 or 2 light coats on the edge (where the tape is) until the end. That way once when the center part of the hood is fully coated you can go back and put 2-3 layers all at once around the edge. Before the edge dries make sure to pull up the tape. You get perfect strait lines and even coats every time. Practice first if you need, but it's actually very easy.

    Sure will. I'm doing the tailgate emblems later today. Hopefully it will work for me. Thanks again

    I finally bought my first can of Plasti-dip while I was at Lowes yesterday. I'm debating what I should try first. Should I derp the front grill surround and leave the Toyota emblem chrome or derp that too? I'm not sure how much I will have left after I do that, just wanted to try it out and then go from there it comes out pretty good.
