My parents actually live right on the border back home in NB, so looking into stocking up on cans when I go home for a visit. I love the look of the hood, how does it look at the ends? Do you just do it quick and peel so it doesn't stick to the tape you lay?

What are y'all doing to prep the surface? I have chrome grill shell and want to plastidip. Do I need to scuff chrome? Or just clean first? What are y'all using to clean it be dipping?
Also killed my grill off to get ready for it. Back of emblem looks like 2 tabs. Is this glued on too or does it just pop off?

As far as prepping for dipping, clean it really, really good with whatever you usually wash your car with. I took my grill off and used Dawn to clean it. Then I took an aerosol can of electrical contact cleaner and sprayed it down really well. I let it set in the sun for about an hour to warm up and get good and dry and then sprayed.

As for the the emblem, we've got same gen Rams, but different grills, so I don't know.

Good luck with your dipping project. Post some pics of it when your done.

I just used AC Delco window cleaner on my grill to clean and prep it.. I left the emblem in and blacked it out with it. For my bumpers I just washed my truck before hand, and then just taped off around so I wouldn't have to clean up overspray.. Would say it came out pretty solid.
