Re: Plasti-Dipped Rear Step Pad

It's like anything.... taking a part off and prepping and painting properly ALWAYS gives a much better finish than simply masking up and painting in situ.

Surely you're not going to argue that are you?

Yeah, wayyy too much texture for me, but could look the part on a serious off-road rig. Would be tough as nails too.

Re: Plasti-Dipped Rear Step Pad

Sorry mate... I got outa bed wrong side today so came off a bit short.

Removing and prepping a part prior to paint just allows you to clean it properly, and get a nicer finish. You can paint nicely right to, and beyond, the edge, without masking and possibly getting overspray or incomplete coverage.

Your good, don't worry about it.

And I understand now lol, I am unsure how they are removed though.

Re: Plasti-Dipped Rear Step Pad

Remove the wiper arms, and then remove the cowl plastic's clips and the rubber strip.

Someone may well be able to come up with a schematic drawing of the area in Q?

What's wrong with texture? Lol. That is more for off-road. But you gotta admit that it's nice. jayloop's WK is awesome.

It is fine, just seems that everything I try you had something better and it just came off as snide.

Sorry for confusing that and calling you a douchebag lol

I guess we all woke up on the wrong side of the bed haha
