    Thought we should have a thread dedicated to the dipping fun. Lets see what you have dipped on your Tundra and what the heck anything else. While you are sharing your amazing work, share your reviews of the product as well. Also share your research, install advice, problems, etc.

    If you haven't seen the dip your car website then you must check it out. https://www.dipyourcar.com/

    Popular items to dip:
    • Badges
    • Bumpers
    • Grill Surround
    • Interior plastics

    What is plastidip? Awesome rubber coating that can be removed if desired that can be applied to almost anything. "for comfortable grip, slip resistance, anti-moisture protection, abrasion and corrosion resistance, and more. Plasti Dip is a true DIY multi-purpose rubber coating"

    How's my old tundra treating you?!

    Anything else you've done to it?

    Real good. I love the tundra! I'm glad I found it. Still feel lucky. I think I got a good deal. I added a bak flip fibermax tonneau cover and husky floor liners front and rear. Trying to pay her off!

    They were asking 31500. Paid 30000 and they gave me 2000 more than I wanted for my 4ruuner! 01 4Runner wanted 4 and got 6. It had 220000 and a bad trans. It needed new wheel bearings, windshield, blinker had a short, no horn. But the interior was spotless. I tend to be a little ocd. I was going to keep it for a toy but decided not to. Now all the money can just go to the tundra ( and the wife's Subaru) when i have too!

    I tried smoke and black. Didn't like the look. Black was not very transparent andsmoke was too grainy and not dark enough.

    Dipyourcar.com has a lot of color choices. Don't think they color match. I have heard people adding a base with a lighter color and a tint or metalizer to create custom colors. Might work.

    changed up the emblem a couple weeks ago:) This is the rustoleum knock off dip stuff.... Seems ok but I think I like the consistency of plastidip better.

    I have been bitten hard by this stuff. I have dipped my grill surround, front and rear bumpers, section under grill, rims, door handles, battery harness, tow hitch, and all emblems. I will say on doing your wheels, go to dollar store and get a bag of med size ballons. Cut them at bottom of neck where it starts to get big. Take the neck part to slide over your lugs . Tooth picks are very useful getting dip out around badges. I will say if your going to do your wheels, to tape off tires. I'm only saying this because when you go to pull off existing dip it will take dip off the rim. You could trim with blade if that's easier. I put 8 coats on my wheels and bumpers. I take a small wire brush and clean tip after each use. Quick note, I bought trash bags from dollar store to wrap my calipers and rotors, for you people who want to spray them in place. Hope this helps. uploadfromtaptalk1436217209422.jpguploadfromtaptalk1436217233654.jpguploadfromtaptalk1436217245491.jpguploadfromtaptalk1436217256142.jpguploadfromtaptalk1436217273819.jpguploadfromtaptalk1436217291908.jpguploadfromtaptalk1436217326777.jpg
