    Black Diamond Coupe - Plasti Dip - Fog Bezel/Front Splitter/Rear Diffuser

    I hate the way the plastic looks on the Black Car. Today I plasti dipped the Front Fog Bezels/ Front Splitter /and Rear Diffuser. I think they came out great.

    Great job... looks much better. Are you thinking of doing the grill?

    Did you mask it off at the edges or just peel off the excess?

    I did something similar but I don't like chrome so I did the fog bezels as well. The lighting in these picks makes the lower valance still look grey, it is black. I also did the back valance which was also grey before.

    CF wrap the top of that 3rd brake light if you havent already. Looks sharp...especially for 5 bucks worth of vinyl!

    The black chrome would be nice but I am sure it's pricey.

    I was debating on getting mine wrapped with flat black vinyl and spraying the grill. After seeing yours may just spray it all.
