    I agree, it would tie-in with the truck better

    Had to peel it off my rear bumper yesterday. Bubbled up so bad. I think it may just be too cold n nasty here in South Jersey to do it right now. I did the front grill when it was a little warmer and its holding up nice though.

    You should do it in the late spring, early summer.

    Dipping in the cold isn't the best thing to do. I found even dipping in the summer time when it's raining, dipping doesn't work all that well. You have to be at least in a place where it's room temp. I found being around 15C tempature is a good start to when it comes to dipping. If it's raining or cold then the dip isn't going to cure to what you're dipping very well. I would suggest like other posters to wait until spring/summer time.

    I say black but try white. Anyway if you don't like it just peel it off :)

    White might give the color matched look if that's what your wanting. I like to break up the colors more so, black would be my choice

    Maxtrac spindles, debugged, lots of plastidip, Iron Cross rear bumper, new head unit,
    It's pretty close. I'm doing this from my phone, so I hope it works, if not I'll attach the picture again tonight when I get home.

    Mine bubbled, I got impatient while spraying.., so I'll be redoing it when it gets warmer, but this should give you an idea...

    Are the satinizers and glossifiers plasti dip too or are they just an acrylic or something? Thinking of spraying the hood for anti glare
