Default Plasti-dipped the Nerf Bars Black

Had a chance to plasti dip my nerf bars the other day so I went for it. Cleaned them while on the truck then removed them and cleaned them again. Then rubbed them down with alcohol and dried them really well.

I went through 2 cans, 1 on each side. It worked out to be 2 really good coats then a 3rd light coat. Waited 30-40 mins between coats. Then let them sit a day before putting them back on.

Put them back on today and I think they look great. I even washed the truck and washed the nerf bars and dried them off after with no wear to the plast-dip at all.

I had the steps off all day yesterday and I actually like the look of the truck with them off as well. They're off in the first picture.

What do you guys think?

Thanks Cajun.. I'll keep everyone posted and add new photos in a weeks time too see how they are.

Drake - I sprayed them. It comes in an aerosol cans as well. After the first coat it was dry in about 30 mins and looked good to go, I put a second coat on to cover any missed spots and just to strengthen it, then a light 3rd coat for good measures.

Thanks everyone, glad to here your wheels are holding up scmedic09. I'll let you know how mine do.

As for the undercoating aerosol I'm not too sure I haven't used it maybe someone else can chime in. It sounds like it could suite the purpose so it may be similar. Plasti-dip apparently comes in clear as well.

The best part is if you do see a scratch or chip out of it you can spray over it and it fills right in. I actually hard to do this when I was inbetween coats I flipped it over and it scratched, then I filled it in and you couldn't even see it.
