Default My plasti dip project

Well my front bumper started getting a few rust spots and my fender flares looked horrible and faded, thought I would kill 2 birds with one stone. So I'm plasti dipping all of the bottom of my truck. I do like the stock silver and gun metal, but thought I'd give black a shot.

I have thought about doing the same. I have the same color scheme, waiting to see how yours turns out. You may motivate me to do mine as well.

I think the color combination will look sharp. I know a lot of folks have used this stuff, but I'm still wondering how well it will hold up. From the pics it's hard to tell what finish you used. Is it more flat or glossy?

It's flat, but they make a glossifier you need so it doesn't fade, doing the other side now looks pretty good

I bought 3 cans and I'm pretty sure that's how much it will take, not finished yet

I did the same thing on my truck but put rocker guard over the plasti dip and it looks amazing and holds up great

I just used my pocket knife and took it across the bottom of the tape so it came off clean.
