Easiest way to plasti dip fog light bezels?

I was thinking about using plasti dip to black out the front of my '14 JGC Overland. That would include the grill rings, lower bumper area (fascia? I believe) and the fog light bezels. The grill rings and lower bumper seem simple enough, but I'm curious as to how to do the fog light bezels, because they are at an awkward angle it may be difficult. Anyone that has done this process in the past have any recommendations or advice? Take off the bezels? Do it while it's still on the car or is that a PITA? Any and all advice is welcomed. Thanks!

Take off the bumper. Super easy. Two areas hold it on. I did mine. Apply wet coats. It does level off. And clean with alcohol. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1470528422.220288.jpg

Looks awesome! That's the final goal for mine. Fog light bezels done! Thanks for the help, will post pics soon. How did you do the front lower bumper? (fascia I think it's called? not sure). Is it easiest to do with the front bumper off? It seems like it may be difficult to peel in certain spots, let me know! Thanks

I had the entire bumper off and pulled the lower facia as well as the fog lights out of the bumper. To me, it comes out cleaner. It's all about prep and cleaning to get a good result.

Okay thank you. Anywhere I could find a video or instructions on how to remove the bumper to replace the lower chrome bumper. Not sure the difficulty, but willing to give it a try. Not sure if I want to plasti dip or find a replacement, found an affordable replacement on CariD

Re: Easiest way to plasti dip fog light bezels?

I had the same though. But I think the one on carid is textured, not paint grade. To remove there are three tabs when you lift the hood and 5 tabs underneath, of those 5 underneath there is one in each wheel wheel. Then there is a 9-10mm bolt in the wheel well and a plastic rivot. Cut the rivot and get a new tab at the auto parts store. Peel back the front wheel molding. Then it's as easy as pulling the sides of the bumper off and then the top of the bumper. It took me all but 20 minutes. Search for it in the wk2 forum. It's there. I can also take picture of what to pull and Post for you. Once that is off, then you will pull tabs to get the lower facia off.

I left bumper on. Taped off the general area around the bezels and the light itself. After the dip dried u can run a razor in the crease and pull off the excess
