Did the rear bumper today so I'm all done and very happy with the results from plastidip :)



I'll add a tip for plastidip to not tape off closely the part your doing but to leave a gap and peel the excess to make the edge vs trying to tape the edge. Better edge and easier job... I screwed up one part of my front bumper with a taping error vs just letting the plastic do the edge.

The keyhole I did I just taped a square leaving an 1" plus around and it's perfect circle I could never had done with taping.

yep. thats the beauty of plasti dip! soooo easy to work with, and any sharp edges will make the perfect trim for the part.

well i dont have any of some on the rockers but i did use the clear plasti dip on my hood




i used it as a rock shield. the key to this stuff is to spray it on thick so it comes off easy
