After #1 - more to follow
If you want an honest opinion then here it is. It makes it look like someone went into a dealership and asked what is the most least expensive model you have available. You know, the one with optional wheels. :laugh: Really does not float my boat. Good news is Plastidip is easily removed without damage.
It looks good in a "Sport" mode kinda way. But I personally (due to my age probably) like the chrome look that they use to dress up the vehicle.
That Plastic dip isn't really a dip. It's more like a Rustoleum spray isn't it ?
For the chrome window trim...any prep to the surface needed?
As a retired body shop mgr. for over 30 years at a large DFW auto dealer I hope the product works well and holds up over the years and the outside elements. The only reason I say this is from past experiences with spray can paint products their life span is very short and does not hold up under the elements. This product could be different, but I guess time will tell. My other concern is that paint does not stick well to a slick surface without being sanded and these emblems are about as slick as it comes, another concern. I do like the black look of the emblems, but I would do a different process and it would be at a much higher expense, probably most wouldn't take that approach.
I've got a Lunar Silver RT with black roof rails and I hadn't owned it long before I dipped the badges on the tailgate too. I think the contrast looks significantly better from a decent distance but you don't have to get very close before even I agree - I got what I paid for. I was originally interested in blacking out the grille and the window trim too but, even with the Plasti-dip Glossifier, I'm still disappointed enough with the results on the emblems that I've decided to hold off.The black emblems on the rear contrast better. I think chrome with silver is a bit boring and doesn't go well together, like the white and chrome look. Hard to even see what it is, might as well have no badges.
Did you tape around the badges then use an razor to trim the tape?
