Plasti dip time!!!

So, Just grabbed a few bottles of the good stuff from home depot and going to do the front JEEP letters on the hood, the chrome grill, the chrome strip on the running boards and the letters on the chrome rear brow under the window.

Here's my question, any ideas how the rear brow would look with just the letters blacked out and leaving the rest chrome?

Just looking for some opinions, ya know, bc I value them

Re: Plasti dip time!!!

You might as well try it. If you don't like the look, take it off.

No doubt. The joys of plasti dip. I was just hoping someone already tried it and could post a pic. Oh well, looks like my day off on friday is going to be one hell of a mod day.

Which year Jeep do you have? This makes a big difference. If its a 2014, I'm not sure what you mean by just painting the letters black, isn't it only the letters that are chrome?

I'm pretty sure Chunderboy has a 2013 and the JEEP lettering is chrome on a chrome strip piece. So doing the JEEP lettering black would make it a lot more noticeable. On the 2014's the area around the JEEP letters is painted body color.

2013


2014

Right. That's why I was confused, I assumed he had a 2014

Re: Plasti dip time!!!

So i just did the FLIP of that with the rear chrome brow. Taped over the letters, then sprayed, and peeled. So JEEP is in chrome still. Cool idea of yours though, something diff and would match the front JEEP letters in black.

I will post some pics up soon. One area that would be kinda hard is right around the JEEP letters on the brow. It's kinda of a diff texture chrome there, like embossed letters. You would have to decide where the dip ends and where the chrome begins. Easier to leave the whole JEEP area chrome esp since the dip would get in between the letters, like the "ee"

Yea, I def hear what you're saying, but still wanna give it a go. I just like the idea of having contrast back there. Whether I do it your way, the whole rear brow or just the letters will be a game time decision.

HAHA. I knew one of the brethren would have done it. Looks awesome.

How many coats and did you mask off in between the letters and the "e" or just scrape it out after it dried?

Got any profile shots, interested in seeing the rims too?

Re: Plasti dip time!!!

That is 3 coats. When I first did it I masked off all the chrome in between each letter and tried to isolate just the surface of the letters so there would be chrome between each as well as the shapes inside the letters themselves giving it an almost 3D look, but this was extremely difficult to get a smooth result, the dip kept ripping and would leave a jagged appearance so I removed and masked off the entire *Jeep* area and blacked it out.
