Post up pictures of your plasti dip projects and end results here!

Plasti dip is available in tons of places, one of the most popular places is Dipyourcar.com
They offer all kinds of plasti dip, from cans, gallons and spray guns. They have a ridiculous amount of color combinations too!
You can also get plasti dip from your local Home Depot, Lowes, etc.

Plasti dip can give your car a unique look, that's inexpensive and completely reversible. All you have to do is..peel it off! Best part about it!

Currently the only thing plasti dip on my car is the front bumper. I'm planning on doing a little more including shaping up my front bumper that I just did. Looking forward to all the pictures to come with plasti dip! I'm sure we can come up with some pretty creative ideas!

I was thinking of blacking out the "Forte & T-GDI" emblem. Thoughts? How hard would the r&r be? Plasti dip good for this?

Has anyone plasti dipped the silver around the grill? Or maybe even the silver around the fog lights? How hard would this be to do.... keep in mind I don't have too much PD experience :(

Had a little fun with some dip.

To me at least, the grill looks so much better. It should have come from the factory this way. 5 coats of black and 3 coats of glossifier. I might redo it with the new top coat gloss, it didn't get as glossy as I was hoping. It still looks better than the chrome ring though.

I also did the back emblems. I kind of like the T-GDI but I'm still not sure of the rest. I may just remove the badges all together. I like the clean look, plus it'd be easier to wipe down after a wash. Gotta love trying to get all the blow-by off....I need a catch can something fierce.

Wondering how the black emblems would look on black. Those look really sweet on white though. Maybe I could go with a red. Hmmmm

Anyone have any time I can borrow to get this done? Keep up thr good work guys.
