Im gonna assume those saying its not needed have not driven from the north west down to texas. I spent a few years chasing the BASS open tour and some other trails. /I went through more windshields from that section of trip in 3 years than i did in my previous 15 driving.

There is alot more and a lot LARGER rock on the road when you get into say wyoming, colorado, ks, new mexico, and west texas.

And ya.. plasti-dipp will for sure look better then blue painters tape lol.

DOH!!!!! Oh well the few bucks more means I didn't have to go further than 2 min from my house. I can live with that. LOL.....

Where in Canada are you? If you've got a Hoe near by, then surely you have a Canadian Tire or better still a Home Hardware.

For $36.00 a can I would want them to spray it on for me! LOL......

It may be me, but I wouldn't recommend Plasti-Dip for a windshield! Hahahahahahaha......

Josh, what color are you thinking of dipping the front? There is a clear Plasti-Dip, but I don't know if Home Depot sells it. They do carry black for sure, so driving back to God's country wouldn't be too bad with a matte front end. I think it's a great idea. I'm a 'one good coat' dipper, and it has worked well for me, but it is 100% cosmetic. For protection, 5+ coats would be best. And if I had to guestimate, I would think 3 cans would be plenty for full coverage of the nose. Safe travels, Bro!

I did black, did it saturday. Here it is:









Came out OK I think. I went with black as you can see, I used 4 black and 2.5 clear and it is about 1/8" thick. When I get to TX I am going to leave the grille done this way and just remove the dip from the painted surfaces. Should be a nice look.

I'm guessing you use rattle cans? That's a lot of work. Nice job!

^ I already did...

Roger, I had not thought about using only clear plasti-dip...I wonder if that would have turned out better? The rattle can black looks like ass on a large surface area like this, but it will protect.

Yeah, it does, Josh. But, now that you've got it on there, get some colored dip and have at it. You could call it American Graffiti.
