Here you go [MENTION=50229]smcox1[/MENTION]. Over at a buddies and the rain stopped long enough for me to take a couple of pics. This is with the rear emblem smoked and then sprayed with matte clear plasti.

Sorry the truck a a bit dirty but like I said its been raining everyday or at least every other. Pretty sure I might of also mentioned this was done last summer and I have not noticed any fading. It beens beaten down by the sun, snow, road salt, and it still looks great.

Its tough to say man. My buddy does plasti dipping on the side. So he buys the plastidip by the gallon directly from dipyourcar and uses their electric spray gun. If you're going with the rattle can route id say 3 or 4 cans. Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions and ill do my best to help or ask my buddy for you.

Just a guesstimate I'd say he's right at 2-4 cans. Good thing is Advance Auto and Home Depot carries the dip. So if you have too much you can return it easily.

It took 1 can per wheel with about 5-6 coats for my wheels. Remember the more coats the better. You don't want the dip thin as it will make it tougher to peel if you want to remove it.

Also, don't be too concerned about overspray. It easily comes of with a microfiber towel or doing clay bar or even better Nanoskin Autoscub.

That emblem looks great smoked! It takes two cans at the very most but one can could get it done.

I did mine but peeled it off shortly after. I think it looks great on white, silver and other colors but wasn't feeling it in the black.

I think the anthracite would look good on the black especially if you have the dark Grey 20s

Same bro. Will probably do it after the sun goes down. Although I might do it Saturday.
