Done! I'm debating on using a silver sharpie on the FOCUS so it matches my car.

I'd vote to keep it all black /\
(you can always go pack and sharpie it but not sure how well it would hold up)

Today I got to experience the joy that is peeling Plastidip that has been painted over. I was wetsanding a run out of the clear coat and it just plain ripped the head off the run and peeled all the way down through the dip layer to the chrome underneath, so I had no choice but to peel it all the way and do a complete repaint. :-/

I tossed the piece in my convection oven on warm and the paint and plastidip peeled off in big long sheets! Kinda fun actually, but kind of depressing seeing my hours of work and dry time going down the drain. Oh well. A fresh coat of Plastidip is drying on it as we speak. Hope to get the black metallic and clear shot before I have to leave for work.
