    Lightbulb Plasti Dip CTS-V Front Grille

    I had recently wanted to see how it would look to plasti dip the front grille of my V because there aren't that many that I've seen in white that have been plasti dipped in the front so I tried it and here is how it looks. Tell me what you guys think and what you think looks better.

    Did you cover up the components behind the grill before spraying? If so is there an easy way to do that without removing everything?

    I think it should have come from the factory like this, which is why I did mine...

    Car looks beautiful, I'm looking to do the same, was going to pay to get it done. You did a great job btw.
    Where could I find instructions to do this?

    Thanks!

    All you have to do is mask off the sides, you don't need to cover the back components at all, they'll be fine. Just mask the emblems and spray, 1st coat about 50% transparency, wait for 15mins, and spray 2nd coat for 100% transparency and wait for 15mins again. Keep going until you are satisfied but in my experience 4-5 coats is the best

    Have you guys touched yours up at all with additional coats later? I've noticed some rock impacts that have put holes in the dip. It's subtle, but at some point it will get worse. Can I just respray right over the old dip or do I have to pull it all off and redo?

    yes. just make sure the can is at least 72* and shaken well. I've done several spot "touch-ups" and it's impossible to tell the difference.
