    Are you removing them to plasti dip or are you masking and painting while they are on your truck? I'm getting the itch to do some...:notsure:

    I painted mine with Plasti-dip by just taping them off. I did remove the fog lights though.

    Masking works. Use around 7 heavy layers for better durability.

    You don't have to move your fog lights. I made a template for them to cover lights and sprayed bumper in place. Just a thought

    First coat should be very light, second coat a bit heavier, 3rd coat I go with a normal coat. The first coat being very light helps the plastidip adhere.

    I pulled the grill off but taped the area around the bumper I wanted to dip.
