    So I finally got around to dipping all the chrome on my car this weekend with the help of my fiancee. It was a pretty cool process, and the product works just as advertised. I took some pictures for you guys to see the end results! Here I am hard at work! Front Grill & Whatever that chrome...

    I'm looking at blacking out the chrome on the bullet 1.5 and I stumbled across Plasti Dip. Has anyone used this product? It looks too good to be true honestly, but I like the idea of being able to peel it off if it looks like crap. If this is a load of crap, can anyone recommend a better simple...

    I think this little change makes a pretty big difference! I covered the orange on the side.. I love plasti dip because if I get tired of it I can just pull it off!

    So my front bumper was a mess. The aftermarket erebuni front valence was peeling and chipping to the point of more grey primer showing than blue (friend painted it originally). I did some research and decided to jump on the Plasti-Dip craze. And boy am I satisfied with the results. (even...

    My car has been peeling clear coat for over 5 years now. It started with the hood, which I eventually completely peeled, and then had a shop repaint it. It came out great, but it was very $$. The roof is now in terrible shape, and it will cost even more to paint that. I've been looking at...

    My center console is tacky/sticky, because the outer layer of the rubber coating has been worn away. There is actually color coming up (but hasn't peeled down to the actual plastic). Is there some sort of plastic clearcoat I can apply to prevent the color and tacky problems? Has anyone...

    So after seeing all the threads about plasti dip, I have decided to do it on my black B5.5 on all the chrome pieces. I'm real excited to see how it turns out and post before and after pics. Any tips from people who have done it and is the front badge and grill slats easy to get out? TIA

    I am really wanting to black out the chrome on my B5.5 and have seen a lot of stuff about Plasti Dip on here being used on grills, emblems, rubstrips, and lowers. I was wondering if it would really be worth doing on all of my chrome trim, or if it is going to peel off after a little while. Can...

    i thought it was an original idea last year, then I came to understand that some MKblah drivers had already done it to their grills and badges, votex ground effects... etc. To actually pleasing effects in some cases. The point being, yes, I did some plasti dipping a year or so ago on my grill...
