Looks good. I actually was really into plasti dip until I started hating on it when it started peeling and you couldn't really wash it. DipYourCar has a video on how to wash plasti dipped cars but it still isn't the same.

I originally dipped my stock wheels/front grille/rear badge. It's just PITA taking them off.......lots of rubbing and lots of Goo Gone.

This is how I did my rear badge...and maybe you might like it this way better?



This way the chrome GT really comes out. Just a suggestion. From the looks of it, you know what you are doing and it looks very neat.

^haha yes very true. They do work.

OP, not trying to jack the thread, but this is what happens when you have too much free time and get plasti dip crazy Lol!



Very ricey and just cheap looking. I'm sooo happy they are all gone except for the one in the rear badge:

haha, im not gonna go crazy with it, i bought 1 can and im done. i only wanted my badges blacked out.

next i'll be ordering RTR wheels, or some like them. that probably wont be for a couple more paychecks though, im pretty spent from christmas gifts for the kiddos and wife.

My badges still look pretty good after a year with plastidip. That stuff stays on pretty well in my experience.

I did my faux fuel cap the same way IHaveFat did. I think that'd really pop on your decklid. IMO, it seems like there's just a chrome circle out of place on your decklid if you look from a distance. Just my 2cents. Otherwise it came out nice, looks good.

I would have just painted the front emblem. they are super easy to take off (well for 99-04 atleast) and I think it would look good painted to match the car, but i am a little biased on that :lol

No paint will not change. you just gotta make sure if you decide to take it off, use Goo Gone or 3m adhesive remover. If you take the effort to detail it after that then it's gonna look brand new!

If you get plasti dip on the cars paint will it do damage
nope, not at all.

you actually dont have to use any goo gone, as long as you make the coat thick enough (at least 4 coats) it peels right off with barely any effort.
