Has anyone plasti-dipped their chrome bumper, any pics. I would also like to hear from ones that have used plasti-dip on other parts and your opinion on how you think a bumper would turn out , process , looks , ect.

A member on here did his powerwagon. Try and search for it. As for plasti dipping anything just make sure the part is really clean and has no oil residue on it before you spray. Even if you mess up you can always peel and start over again, touch ups are easy too. Just mask off well and I would suggest to start removing the masking off while it's still wet that way you get a cleaner line and the plasti dip has less of a chance of peeling off when you pull the masking off, you may also want to use a razor blade just to make sure you get good separation.

I have been somewhat happy with mine. I did them black and messed up so I had to peel it all off and then decided to paint over to try and match the factory paint....like the sport look. Turned out ok. Not great but it's cheap. It scratches easily but touchups are easy too.

Basically little prep, spray the plasti-dip, spray the dupli-color and then some clear coat. Never wet sanded to polish it up to a shine but like I said it's decent. Not thrilled but don't hate it either.

Exactly. I didn't know if it would work but it did. I didn't buff out the clear or anything and that's why it looks like it does.
