Played with some Plasti Dip
 
I plan on putting the Altitude grill and brow on my Overland but wanted to see how it was going to look,so I bought some Plasti Dip and Gloosifier .I took off the rear brow after I dropped the tail lights off to get smoked.http://i1139.photobucket.com/albums/...psbf147a8c.jpg
I then took off the chrome grillhttp://i1139.photobucket.com/albums/...ps3a27331e.jpg
I like how the Altitude grill has the mesh a different color than the grill shell so I bought some silver metallic paint http://i1139.photobucket.com/albums/...psf848679e.jpghttp://i1139.photobucket.com/albums/...psd8e57997.jpg
I then sprayed four coats each of the Plasti Dip and Glossifierhttp://i1139.photobucket.com/albums/...ps0b529118.jpg
Finished producthttp://i1139.photobucket.com/albums/...ps806b94c3.jpghttp://i1139.photobucket.com/albums/...ps3ec816f1.jpg

I'll put some pics up of the rear when I get the tail lights back.

Nice job!
Hey, I am wondering about the Plastidip- were you able to get a smooth finish with the addition of the glossifier?
I remember seeing a couple clear bras done with the clear dip and they had significant orange peel.Does the glossifier take care of that?

It still has a very fine texture to it

Nice job! I'm usually not a fan of Plasti Dip but the contrast against the silver and the addition of the grill insert really looks cool.

Looks good I'm doing the same thing using the aluminum plasti dip for the mesh.

I just ordered the clear and some gloss enhancer. Im going to do a test on mine. I'll post my results.
I used to install clear bras for a living, and was an Xpel install/dealer. I gave it up due to physical problems. But this stuff would be easier on me if I can get reasonable results. I'll include it in my services offered in addition to graphics.
