So i got bored this weekend and decided to black out my rims, grill and back emblem with plasti dip. This stuff is amazing, i've driven it through the rain and what not and not a single scratch. But the crazy thing is i can peel it off if i want to. Took about 5 cans total to do the whole truck. Hope you like the pics! In two days i plan on doing the back and front bumpers:thk:

Is the Plasti dip a spray can? It looks dull on the parts you painted. IMO I don't really care for the dull finish looks kinda cheap. Nice truck though.

They have a plastidip glossifier now, just acts as a clear coat. BTW the truck looks great! what made you decide not to plastidip the from ram emblem?

It's matte black it's supposed to have a dullness to it. If you want it shiny you buy the glossifier to give it a shiny look as bugaboo has stated before me.



Your wheels look just like mine!

Where can you buy this stuff? And also do you have to remove the parts from the truck to paint them? My entire truck is black except for my door handles. This would work perfect for that if I can leave them on and do it.

Great Job man! My buddy BlueStreak2012 and I just did his wheels this weekend. Hopefully he will post some pics on here so I don't have to do it for him!

Turned out well!! Yea that stuff is amazing, esp. for $6 a can at Home Depot (I think they have it in red and white too). I also did my rims a few months ago and the stuff is holding up really well (been through several car washes too). I am debating whether to the cladding next or just paint it...
