I'd really like to see what it looks like when you get it and put it on.

Not really completely. I tinted my tails and in two years they were back to completely red. They were DARK and I put four coats of clear on them. They just faded right back to red.

See, I don't think this looks good. I love the look of the Saabs the 9-5. There was someone on here that did his '13 Focus sedan turn signal and back up light, and it looked really good. I forget who it was though.

Painted my radio bezel this past weekend, came out almost the same texture as the rest of the dash.

How do you keep the Plasti-dipped areas clean? I sprayed my spoiler, and faux rocker panels, and they always look dirty - no matter if I have just cleaned them. I do live in a very dusty area aka all dirt driveway. But the dirt just clings to the plasti-dip making it look like crap! :(

if its on the exterior, a little tire shine goes a long way.
