Update:

earlier today I removed the diffuser, i cleaned and washed it.

I forgot to take a picture of the "before" but it was just that ridiculously ugly grey color and I have since put one coat of plastidip on and so far it looks better than the grille, I believe this is partially due to the even lines of the diffuser compared to the grille. So far I like the outcome. I will post pictures later today!

Hey just saw this. I did my grilles back in July, held up flawlessly. Also keep in mind the grilles can be split apart into two pieces each, easier to get it coated properly.

I noticed that after about the second coat so I left them together. They turned out pretty nice I like the turnout, now for the test of time!!

Diffuser done!!! looks pretty good, not 100% satisfied with the texture but i believe I figured out why it seems so course. If you spray a very thin layer at a time it lays rather flat, regardless of distance from the dipped object. If you respray much at all on a single coat it becomes much more thick (obviously). This stuff doesn't work quite like spray paint but it has many of the same qualities.

Oh yea, I forgot to mention my steering wheel trim piece has been peeling for quite sometime so I stripped off the rubbery stuff and decided to try and dip it... Here's what I got!!

The wheel trim looks spiffy.

I am getting a serious serious itch to do a rather "large" Plastidip project!

Wheels, diffuser, and grille to be completed soon hopefully!

What color Should I do the wheels in? I am thinking Olive Drab green, let me know what you think!! My car is BSM.


I am kind of scared and want some positive reenforcement on this little endeavor
Personally i wouldent use it for wheels or ur defuser..i would only do my emblems and small things like that

Yea, once I get some decent weather in spring/summer Im pretty sure my car will be completely dipped, just because. I am undoubtedly doing the Olive drab green, i love that color!

I think it looks quite good on your black car, certainly makes the rear looker meaner where I think the grey stock colour kind of makes it look cheap.

I did about 5 because I wanted an even solid thick coat, you could get away with three but recommend 5. It looks great still!
