Default Fun with Plasti dip...

Decided to paint the chrome part of the bumper and grill. I did this because I was bored and the wife left her truck here with me bad idea....
Plasti dip comes off easy so it was just for sh*ts and giggles. Came out good in my opinion.

This one is the one with the grill painted and not the bumper.

This is after the product.


what you guys think?

Nope, clean it really good with soap/alcohol. And make sure its completely dry before adding the coats. I put 3 coats.

Ooooh, well I've played with this stuff for quite sometime on different things. And from my experience you just got to be careful when cleaning. But you be alright power washing it and what not.

If you look at my pictures, my Chrome bumper and grill took one can. But in your case I would buy two just to be on the safe side. Plus you might find other stuff to try it on If you have any left over.
