I'm familiar with how plasti dip acts when spraying the emblems but the trim has a lot of different edges and surfaces so I want to get the prep work right.
Thanks for the help
I dipped it with a 1 inch border around the whole trim. It peels off the glass just fine, and the trickiest parts are near the side mirrors and where the trim meets the glass. Spend plenty of time on masking and prep work and you should be fine. If I could do it again, I would focus one more coat on the edge closest to the glass. It would require you to shoot almost straight towards the ground, but at least you wouldn't have to worry about it peeling early. I think the window trim was probably the hardest since the prep work was so tedious and the angles were pretty difficult. I did every piece of chrome on my overland, so if you have any questions, ask away. I'll try my best to share any lessons learned.
