Looking very good. Did you purchase the wheels separate?

Just my opinion but honestly on a brand new car like that you might as well just spend the extra cash and get everything painted professionally. A little tacky in my book to use plastidip on 50k plus vehicles. Not a diss just stating my opinion. Do what you damn well please lol

I already asked my local body shop and they said paint wont stick to chrome. Anybody else have suggestions how to get rid of this ugly ass chrome. Tried wrapping mirrors and completely butchered it.

many, many, many members have had chrome painted...including me. If it is prepped correctly..it will be fine. Find another shop

Looks good but unless that car dealer is paying your car payment to drive around with their name plastered on the back of your new car everyday, I would take that frame off.

Exactly. I always piss off my car salesman by taking it off in front of them.

Just an update will be getting side mirrors painted for 75 bucks different local shop said they can paint chrome. Hopefully everything comes out fine.

I think plastidip on any car is a good idea. It's the "try before you buy" mentality. Why not spend $10 and test out what you want for a few months? Maybe you'll change your mind or think of something better.

Unless you are 150% sure of what you want to do, I think shelling out the cash to paint something without testing it out first is a bad decision.
