lookin' good guys! I did all my emblems today and it turned out awesome. One thing I would recommend... put on at least 5 coats and don't rush it. the more coats you make the easier it is to peel off around the emblems. I also used a toothpick to pick at the "hard to get" spots when removing the plasti dip around the emblems. After the emblems, I decided to spray the front windshield wiper fearing...the guy I purchased the truck off of painted it silver and it wasn't prepped well. after a few coats and giving it time to dry I decided to put it through a pressure wash and the plasti dip was still in mint shape.

Thanks ! I am defiantly addicted, good idea for the widers, was looking around debating what I could do next haha. Sadly it is 26 per can here. The color is burnt orange, I have read that copperhead pearl is a new 2013 color. The drivers side dip looks really good, love the smooth finish compared to a couple coats of rock gaurd.

Turned out good but why take the emblems off? I painted mine while on truck. Holy hell $26 a can, I got 4 cans for that price.

Did the rear one first and found it dripped a lot for me, eventually got it to work, but decided to just take the front off, just held in by clips so was actually easier than taping off. Yeah, 26 per can is pretty brutal, makes it hard to practice cause you value every drop. I could get it a tad cheaper off ebay, but would rather pay a bit more than wait a month for shipping.

Hey man, I bet if you found the right person, they would buy some cans for you, and mail them to you and you send them 6 dollars. Or work a deal with someone. $26 per can is outrageous. I's check around the forum for someone willing to do that.

Holy Cow! $26 a can? Will dipyourcar.com ship to Canadia? I dipped my fuel door as well. My wife asked me why, I said because I could.



So far I've dipped my wheels, badges, emblems and grill. Bumpers and nerfs are next.
