    I actually did not take it off. But it suuuuucked to do with it on.

    I believe you take the little panel where the backup sensor lights are. Sorry dude. This part I'm not sure in. I just know that I will take it off if I change the roof!

    Re: 3M 1080 Mohawk Complete Pics inside

    Ok guys

    Here is my finished product for this season. I painted the wheels...3 coats of plasti dip, 2 coats of trim black on top of that and then while the trim black was still wet i dusted in a liiiiiittttle bit of plastidip metalizer. Let me know what you think.







    As you can see i have a bit of a water problem. We went from 2 feet of snow last week to less than 6 inches this week and the drainage around my house is having a tough time. SOOOOO water is running in the garage door. And to add insult to injury it is now raining real hard....perfect.

    Anyway...cheers!

    PS... this is also with the re 11's on. 305 in the back and 265 in the front.

    Just wondering did you remove the tires from the rims when plasti dipping or did you just tape off or just peel off the extra overspray. Also what was the reasoning for the trim black spray coats, more protection or a better finish color? I want to plasti dip my rims but I am hesitant on if they will constantlty be needed to be recoated from chips. Mine is a daily driver so wanted to know the longevity. Also did you buy black lug nuts or are you go to plasti dip them too or just leave them not sprayed?

    You use a deck of cards and wedge them between the rim and tire.

    I did not bother. Just painted right over the tire and peeled it off after.

    The trim black is a slightly better color and I find that the plasti dip sticks and doesn't chip as easy as just paint but it is softer and dust sticks to it. The trim black dries smooth and hard and is easy to clean. So it is a little tougher I think.

    Cheers

    I've ordered the vinyl to do this. Going to look interesting with a power hood.

    black grill, symbol look good - except center of symbol sticks out like rudolph's nose - why not black that too? not a fan of smoky lights and vinyl treatments - but if that's your thing, go for it; intricate details of such automotive modifications can certainly be appreciated by all
