RonMaiden The dipped spoiler looks like cheap unpainted plastic and needs a little shine with maybe a couple coats of semi-gloss clear.

I did my fogs and license plate like that and it removes the dipped look which tends to look dusty and dry after a few months in the sun.

Sweet. I may have to give that a try!

Did you take it off to dip it?

Drovira14 Plasti Dipping the radio today, base coat is on. Going to do a metallic gold look. Will update with pictures.

Switched up the base coat to black after realizing it would be a lighter tone with the white. Two more coats then I will show a picture after install.

Love it!

Could not be happier with the result in my blacked out focus.

All in all, I give myself a B/B+ on execution. It turned out decent, not great

Don't buy anything that is flooded. Water damage is not something to deal with, and definitely not with electrical

Drovira14 At night they are just as visible as the stock. A lot of the light goes through the dip.
