Yes just taped it off each stripe is 4'' wide and the gap in middle is 2'' angled them like stock stripes and used my hemi badge on the hood as a center marker trick is remove tape when plasti dip is still wet for perfect lines. Been over a month and they are still perfect

One more question: Did you just do one coat and remove tape while still wet?

I know everyone talks about plastidip and it looks great.
I also read it can be removed/peeled if you don't like it.
That said, how is it holding up to normal day to day weather? Or even the simple of things...washing the truck?
I want to do my grill but not sure how it will hold up.

When doing my grill, I will want to try exactly what you did here.
Will plastidip also hold up on calipers or do I need to use something more heat resistant?

Been over a month and with the pollen here ive washed it like 6 times and it still looks like the first day i did it / as far as calipers i would not try that ive heard people say it holds up under heat but im not buying it. I took and painted a piece of metal with it and hit it with my heat gun and it bubbled like boiling water. As far as the calipers use high heat header paint and hit it with some high heat clear.I also bought cal covers which i love

This is my tips with high heat paint and high heat clear
