    I'm going all black and blue with my ride so that's right up my alley. What'd did it cost to get that done? Or did you do it yourself

    That was for someone to do it or did you do it yourself and that's what the product costs were?

    Did it myself and it was easy. Just took the grill off by the 2 clips that hold it on the bottom, took off the plastics under the headlights and washed them. Layed out a sheet and had 4 cans of dip. About 2 hours later (having to wait 10 minutes between each spray) i was slapping it back on.

    I did mine with plastidip as well. There are lots of you tube videos that will help you do a good job with plastidip!

    Plasti is easy to apply. Downside is it doesnt last long, difficult to keep clean, and doesnt withstand bugs, rocks etc from normal driving. I had plasti dip for about a year but decided to remove it and paint mine. Using color match paint, high automotive grade clear coat and primer. Its very easy actually. Im not a professional painter at all. In fact, I just paint Retrofit Headlights. Got a paint gun from habor freight and the results....not 100% factory but close enough no one can tell. Painted, Tow mirrors, Bumper end caps, hood buldge, plastic front bottom bumper, rear bumpers. Total cost was about $300 give or take.

    Yes sir! First I removed the chrome with Easy Off Oven cleaner. Then started sanding with 400 grit, and then 800 grit. On the plasti bumper, i need to sand it a little with 800 grit because of some scuff marks.

    Sure bud. You'll be very surprised at how easy this is and long it lasts. You might have to do a touchup in a year but aside from that it lasts. Ill go through a detailed description of all the steps (which are minimal) when i get to my work comp in about a hour or so.
