Plasti dip crazy!!!! (pic heavy)


Recommended Posts

Revised!!! Ok so I bought a couple cans this week and decided it was time to get to work blacking out all the crappy chrome. Here is what's have so far. The window trim and lower grill trim are next in my crosshairs. Then the wheels.

Can you get those inserts for the LED lighting on the front off the car from the front with a flat putty knife or did you go in from the wheel well? I'm turning my black as well.

 

Major props on the PlastiDip job...looks great! I would be interested in how it holds up on wheels...well specifically how easy it is to get brake dust/gunk off of them.

Thanks Jojomofo21. I am tempted to do the wheels.

 

Regarding automatic car washes, the one I use is a drive through with whirling brushes, sash-shaying curtains and the attendant has a nasty sounding spray wand. It reminds me of a hammer drill, because it pulses with increased pressure as he sprays the car prior to entering the tunnel of brushes and various spray contraptions. I cringe when he sprays the grill area, where I have done some Dippn', but each time (10-12) the grill is intact.

 

Another thing I have noted is that bugs come off the Dipped areas easier than the chrome and painted areas when I hand wash the car.
