Default just finished plastidip grille, bumpers,gas cap, and all badges.

Was kinda scared to do it at first but i think it turned out good. Does anyone know the best way to clean the surfaces with the plastidip on them?

Not sure where you are located but I see some of that white crap on the ground and roof behind your truck. How cold was it when you did this? Did you do it in a garage or outside? I was gonna hold off til the spring

The actual painting doesn't take long at all its the prep work and waiting between coats that takes time. I didnt do it all the same day , I did it over about 4 days

Crap, thanks a lot. Now I really want to do my chrome bumpers on my truck that is the same color as yours.

Question for the OP.....how many cans will it take to do the front and rear bumpers??

Looks awesome, by the way!
