Not a Ti, but gives you decent idea:

2013 plasti dip emblems

This is my first attempt with plasti dip. Any feedback would be appreciated. I may remove plasti dip off the ford logo. I'm not a fan of chrome. I still have to do the front grill bars and fog light bezels.

On the blaze colors u have to put a base coat of white down if u want the true color of the dip to come out correctly..

Quick question for everyone. I plastidipped a few things like door handles and such but it came out "fuzzy." Am I applying the last layers too light?

And to add, correct me if I'm wrong, but the instructions are on the can just like any other can of "spraypaint"

Plasti-dipped my old Cobra. I got it wrecked so it had a blue V6 front end with a yellow body. We then used the V6 car's rear bumper and a few things, kinda used it as a sleeper. I enventually bought a cobra front and re-did the mess but this is the best pic of the plasti-dip I have.


And a quick video for anyone that love the 5.0's scream
