Might cost you a bit more, but in the long run it's a unique style that looks good.
As odd as it sounds coming from me I agree, mostly. I am always pro getting a full professional paint job done and would say do that for the white, then plastidip for experimental purposes for the black and if it looks good? Rock a solid pro paint job on it. After all isn't that the main reason for PlastiDip? Get a look that can be easily removed?

Wouldn't worry too much about rock chips, so long as it's on thick enough it won't be an issue.

Oh also love the editing up there Mac, that look is for the win!

my back did not hurt today!! between them being uncomfortable for me (bad back to begin with) and the heat, im happy so far. it would have been somewhat different had Ford made them well bolstered/padded and with breathable leather. it was nasty driving around when first getting in and my back would be wet from sweat. i work in an office in a dealership and i dont wanna look bad.


i did my first two mods on the 12 tonight. i know most wont care. i debadged it (still need to get last of the glue off tomorrow) and i painted the front chrome whiskers black with some plastidip.
