Re: Few Pics W/Plasti Dip and Wheels(not plasti-dip)

Just my opinion but honestly on a brand new car like that you might as well just spend the extra cash and get everything painted professionally. A little tacky in my book to use plastidip on 50k plus vehicles. Not a diss just stating my opinion. Do what you damn well please lol

Re: Few Pics W/Plasti Dip and Wheels(not plasti-dip)

I already asked my local body shop and they said paint wont stick to chrome. Anybody else have suggestions how to get rid of this ugly ass chrome. Tried wrapping mirrors and completely butchered it.

Re: Few Pics W/Plasti Dip and Wheels(not plasti-dip)

many, many, many members have had chrome painted...including me. If it is prepped correctly..it will be fine. Find another shop

Looks good but unless that car dealer is paying your car payment to drive around with their name plastered on the back of your new car everyday, I would take that frame off.

Exactly. I always piss off my car salesman by taking it off in front of them.

Re: Few Pics W/Plasti Dip and Wheels(not plasti-dip)

I think plastidip on any car is a good idea. It's the "try before you buy" mentality. Why not spend $10 and test out what you want for a few months? Maybe you'll change your mind or think of something better.

Unless you are 150% sure of what you want to do, I think shelling out the cash to paint something without testing it out first is a bad decision.
