i like the tail lights...looks good, but black or chrome would look better than red for the emblem. rep points for your efforts though...........

The ram's head and the surround in red, the background black would make it pop more. But would be tough.

Plasti-dip'd factory wheels? Looks pretty good on the truck.

Yeah i was going to change my truck into a black and red theme but dont know yet.. I might keep in just Black with minimal chrome.

I was thinking that PTCTreeGuy for the emblem but like you said it would be hard... I might just make it all black and peel off the surround so its encompassed by accented chrome. Yes i plastidipped my stock wheels, i like them it will do its job until i get my lift and new set up! Thanks

Love what you've done!
If you're wanting the red ram head and surround with black background, assuming that your ram head has a black surround already, you could do what I did with mine-- I have a silver, black and red theme.

(crappy pics, but you get the gist)


I laid the plasti-dip down, and while the layers were still wet, I took a toothpick and outlined everything. You can see that in the first image.

Then I let the Dip dry and I peeled off the background dip. I looks a ton better in the daylight.

That being said, just be patient. Keep an eye on the dip as it's drying if you do decide to do it that way. I had to go over a few places again with the toothpick as the dip sort of seeped back towards the ram head again.

Good luck, and great job so far!
