Plastidip sells a kit so you can do your own application. The dip is thicker than paint. I don't know if the Wagner* has different nozzles. I haven't read about anyone trying it yet.



*edit, they use a Wagner in this video

Very cool. I used your grill style with pinstripe surround an added led strip inside my headlamps.

As you know, I asked if anyone had done the truck on a gen 1.5 . Well, my wife bought me a couple of cans of plastidip for my bday, and i was able to do the trunk like I was thinking about and front lower grill.

So, here are some pics of the set up and final photos.

Taping everything off.


Then realizing you don't have to for coat #2


front grill




And the glamor shot


I definitely like the way it turned out. I am such a fan if plasti dip now. Sooner or later, wheels are next.

I was just going to do black. I think I'm going to repaint the entire center stack and wings with sterling grey to match the outside paint. Then I'll try the logo again in black or something

I just did my rims today, Black with a VERY VERY light coat of bronze metalizer. I haven't decided if i want to go any heavier on the bronze yet or not. I will say the photo does not give it full justice., the second image is a close up shot before i peeled the excess off the tires.
