Finally did it! Need to re-do the rear brow and contemplating the grill but it looks great for now! Next project might be to rhino line the step bars...

Re: How to Plastidip all of the exterior chrome

Hey guys!

My first post here. Just picked up my 2012 GC this last weekend. Im pumped!, so much i want to do to her! Was planning on plasti-dipping all the chrome this weekend, except for the window trim and roof rack. was going to vinyl those. only because in my previous car (G35 Sedan) The window trim started peeling real quick due to so much contact with hands etc. Plasti dipping is so much easier to do. Just wanted to ask how its been holding up around the windows for you guys?

Re: How to Plastidip all of the exterior chrome

You actually will not need a razor blade at all. If you follow the process and leave a nice 1 inch gap between the painters tape and the plastic edge, once it dries you will be able to just start peeling at the edge and it will leave a nice smooth perfect edge. Initially this confused me too because I didn't think there was any way just peeling it would leave a smooth edge, but somehow because of the material that plastidip is made out of, it always ends up leaving a very clean edge just by peeling!
