    Does Plastidip makes a black gloss? I thought it was only Matte black. They have a clear, and i know they have a gloss add on type of thing, but that isn't the same as a gloss black, etc.

    Yeah i just did alittle googling.. its the same thing but from what i have seen on other fourms it does not really pop like true gloss black. imo..

    BUt what you could do to get a true gloss black. 3 coats of plastidip used as a primer.. THEN hit it with your real GLoss black.. only negative is that platidip doesnt leave a true mirror finish.. its textured soo it mike look like crap



    check the light reflection on the wheel

    Your idea of the plasti dip first is a really good idea. Then some regular paint and clear. I never thought of that

I've had it on for about a month now and hit up the highway to work everday...no chips or flaking yet, and it holds up to the drive through pressure washers.

    Most of us are stockpiling for the apocalypse, in the future when we degrade to a barter system it'll be as valuable as gold. You'll see!

    Grills installed today and I got her running finally! Ill see how they hold up, so far so good. Im hoping to smoke the brake lights and such here soon but debating if it might be too much black.... And yes plasti dip is basically as good as gold, I just sprayed my 350Zs wheels with it and it is holding up great!
    * please excuse the dirty car, its been being brought back to life, tomorrow ill get clean shots of her I was just too excited to wait!

    For those of you that did your grills, did you remove them from your car, or spray the, while still on the car? Going to be doing this mod this week, just wondering the easiest route.

    Would definitely recommend removing them from the car. Its a pain in the ass to block the over spray. Also if you leave them on you have to be careful about taping off the surrounding area. If you wait til the stuff drys to peel off the paint it will pull off chunks from the grille also. If you remove both it will be much easier

    When I did mine I took it off the car...but it took some time and was a pain to take off the whole front end...unless someone has a better way of getting the grill off. If I were to do it again I definitely would just take the time to prep the car with tape and news paper and just spray it with it on the car. I did my headlights and and running lights as well (kinda the only reason why I decided to take it off.)
