But i think the idea is going in the right direction with the vw.

When I did it I just taped of a rectangle with an extra inch or so around the focus lettering. I gave it about 4 coats and it peeled right off while sticking to the lettering. It came out great.

I noticed a few days later I missed a spot on the side of the F and tried to go over in again. That was a mistake. The plasti-dip did not peel of very well. Probably should have removed the plasti-dip and then gone over it clean.

Do you think it would be good to paint my honey comb bumper black with plasti dip?

I know it doesn't really matter but do you think it would come out good?
