simple plastidip mod (pontiac content)

There's basically no chrome left on the car, tails are tinted, wheels are black, etc, so why not finish it off??

Finished cleaning the garage up, saw the can of plastidip, and looked at the womans car, and decided I'd give it a try

Before


After


I think it looks pretty sweet. And took me less then an hour to do. lol

Thanks!



Trying to find a GXP spoiler for it to beef up the look of the rear end. But they're hard to come by.

Looks great, I still have no idea how plastidip works or ever bothered looking it up. It seems popular though

Looks good but i'd drink a gallon of bleach before using plastidip again. Maybe it works better in warmer climates who knows


btw, explorer roof rack ftw. i wanna mod me a set of them soon.

^do it! and my first try with it was very testing. I had a hard time accepting the fact you don't need to tape things off since you can peel it right off. So I tried my emblems on my truck. Taped right around em. When I peeled it it took the stuff off with the emblem as well. Did it differently the next time and had no problems.
