    Anthracite! Anybody tried it? How close is it to MGM? Thinking of doing anthracite and glossifier on my chrome grill surround.

    thought i would try something different, if anyones interested on how it would look..... Flat brown (camo) plasti Derp chrome front Grill on 2013 Pyrite Mica. Think it turned out pretty well. Might do the Rear bumper to match.
    found the camo derp here:

    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!

    How did you do the tape work on this with the multiple coats (I am assuming)? I would like to do some retro graphics like my '95 had. Something like this [​IMG]

    Nice Derp Work!

    Will Plastidip hold up if I use it to line the floors of my jeep? It's a 73 CJ5 that has a fiberglass tub. Thanks.

    I wouldn't recommend it for flooring since its a very busy area and would get peeled off easily
