A lot of people actually using weather stripping for garage doors and some times it doesn't look half bad. It just depends on the contour of the lower bumper. With the way the focus is shaped, you'd really want something more purpose built.

I'm all for innovative things like using something for what it wasn't intended for. I do wounder what effect air flow has on it? Is it ridged at highway speeds?

That's a good point.... you don't want this "foam" flapping around like a $2 hooker when you get on the freeway.

Red Candy Titanium

So far I've done...

Thule AeroBlades
2x Thule Peloton bike racks
PlastiDip chrome waist trim, chrome grille strips, and 18" rims
VHT Nite-Shades tail lights and mirror turn signals

Still need to PlastiDip fog light bezels and buff out the clear on the tails. Work in progress. Little dirty and lots of bug matter, needs a wash, but waiting for paint to cure.

As long as you're blacking everything out... you should do the reflectors in the rear valence.


How many coats of Plasti dip did you use and how man cans did it take to do your wheels?

4 cans for the whole car and I have just enough left to do the fog lights. I got 3 cans of the glossifier. Was thinking of going gloss black, but I'm digging the flat.
