Default Plastidip the quick and easy way to black things out

I used Plastidip on my truck and I love it. Just trying to see if anyone else used it and how they like it so far.

I just washed them real good and then used some alcohol and a clean cloth to wipe them down and it stuck fine. I did 3 coats and it looks and feels great

Did you guys take the emblems off the tuck when you sprayed them or did you just tape off around them?

Could someone provide the manufacturer? I've been trying to find it locally for a while now. Anyone from Canada know where to get it?

Your 'black out' theme looks real good! See you went to the Auto Mall, I got mine from Chestatee.
