Dipped it yesterday, here are the results:



Ended up doing the rocker panels (3 coats), door pillars (2 coats), war stripes (2 coats), grille inserts and badges (2 coats). I ended up peeling it off the front emblem, as I got a bug stuck in it and when I tried to clean it with a towel, the dip started to come off. Would adding more/thicker coats solve the durability problem? And are there any special ways to wash the truck now that it's on? I'm afraid if I wash it with a brush or wash directly on the dip, it might start coming off. The war stripes are actually better than they look in the pic, for some reason the resolution of the pic makes it look like there's red coming through, but the plastidip is solid
