absolutely fantastic write-up sir! i never would've thought to mask around the trim leaving the paint exposed like that...but i knew that the plastidip could just be peeled up once dry. i laughed at your bit about trying to do the vinyl....because it was 100% dead-on with my experience when i tried it. i've been debating trying the plastidip for a few months now...but this write-up has convinced me that i've waited a few months too long! hopefully i'll have time to attempt this in the next few weeks.

the only thing i would do differently is with regard to the overspray on the rest of the car. i'm planning on picking up a few of those cheap plastic drop clothes used for painting and just covering the entire car....that way the only mess i'm cleaning up is around the trim pieces themselves.

but again... for a great write-up!
