    The only chrome I have on my truck (not including the RW rims, which will be going away) is the 5.7I badges on the fenders. Is there a diy on here showing how Plasti dipping is done?

    Make sure you spray it on thick. Also keep can warm by keeping in warm water. I've learned both lessons the hard way. So just passing on great feedback from folks on this forum.

    Thanks for the responses... never even thought of YouTube. I'm guessing no sanding required???? I'd like to make it a one time deal if it's possible.

    No sanding required, just clean the surface really good. Unfortunately if you want a one and done you should paint it. In my experience the plasty dip lasts about a year, year and a half before it needs some touch up.
