    Re: WDT Plastidip LOVE - Plastidip Pearlizer - MUST SEE

    Is the black gasket type piece part of the chrome molding or does it stay on the hood when you remove the molding?

    The reason I ask is because I'm having mine actually painted, which I assume will cover the black well enough so as not to show any discoloration through the paint, and I'm wondering if both come off the hood at the same time?

    Thanks.

    yes when you remove the chrome trim piece the black will come off with it. The black is held to the chrome with several of the mounting clips and IT SHOULD BE painted in 2 pieces. The chrome should be painted and the black piece should be painted seperately to be done RIGHT. If you paint them together you risk paint drying and eventually cracking and peeling at the seems

    That's good advice ... I'll make sure my paint guy does it as you indicate.

    Once again, thanks.

    I actually do paint work as well. I just really don't like doing pearls because it is so hard to accurately match so I'd rather pay somebody to be liable for the match than me waste a bunch of supplies and time trying. Can't wait to see all your little projects amount to a large modded pic thread!

    was finally able to snap a few pics with the vents on, kind of sucks about the night shots but you get the picture. I love the way it looks, now just to get rid of those fixed running boards and wait for my Plastidip order to finish the door moldings and rear applique....

    Haha I was wondering how long till the DYC crowd made it over here. I've been planning to dip my EXT for a while, just been busy to get to it. This however does give me a problem. I was just going to go flat black but this might be worth the trouble, maybe even two tone it with black somehow...

    Finally found a deal on a platinum/premium hood trim piece (was Silver but only $50 on eBay) so I dipped it today as well as the grille emblem. I've always preferred the color matched emblems versus the standard black emblem. Turned out great, probably my best "dip" yet.

    Cheap paint and clear will not stand up like the EOM paints.It might look good for a year in the elements. I hope the best for you but you may end up with a mess on your hands and regretting it, and wished you'd have had it done professionally.
