Plasti Dipped My Trim and a Killer Bee

So yesterday I manned up and went to Home Depot and bought 2 cans of plasti dip and painters tape. The result is no more ugly faded chrome trim, it took about 2 hrs total for both sides. Definitely not perfect but looks 100x better to me.

Before:



After:





While I was doing this in the garage because it was too windy outside a bee decided to come in and try to sting me. With my plasti dip loaded I sprayed it and the result was the first ever plasti dipped bee.

Bro.. why didnt you get the side marker that blends in with the car? The dark one doesnt look bad but i think the side marker blended in looks better. Just my opinion!!

I got these for $3, the painted ones are like $50+ and i'm just being frugal but I do agree with you! I do like the contrast black side markers have with black wheels, all I need now are the black wheels...

Yeah that does look nice, so does the shark fin too when black because of the contrast.
