Plasti-Dip

Not sure if you guys have seen this stuff. It's basically spray on rubber in a can. Here is the link. And here is a link with some guides and diy stuff. This guy sells the stuff, but I just went down to my local NAPA and they had a few cans of black sitting on the shelf.

So I just finished doing my grills with it and it turned out perfect. They are drying now so I will get some pics up when the are done. This would also work for our trim. And the cool thing is, if you mess up or they get chipped or whatever, all you have to do is peel it right off and start over.

magic in a can

for the winter time, i popped off my side mirror caps, sprayed them, and protected them over the winter freeze and salt kicked up off the ground, last week, peeled them off.

It is good stuff. I just did my grilles as well and it looks great. $5.00 versus $50.00+ works for me.

I hear great things about plasti-dip. Great thing about this product is that it's reversible. Check this g35 out. He dipped his entire car! http://plastidipg35.blogspot.com/
