Thanks for all the compliments, I might get scallops painted on professionally.
Just got back from road trip, car is very dirty. Will take some larger pics when it warms up this week. I wanted to try the low LED's but will be changing them, before the snow rips them off. I did order new LED's to install inside grills. The plate is just there till I get the one from the state.

My concern using glossifier is masking...I dont think it will peel off unwanted areas of overspray like the plasti dip itself?

I guess my question then is, would the glossifier be ok to use on its own as a clear "bra" for the front bumper. I am considering doing the clear dip for the bumper, but would like it glossy...

Yeah, on cars with "floating" fuel doors its interesting, but the 2012 is kinda integrated into the taillight assembly cut lines, so I dont know how that would look dipped...

Interesting how its uses vary from vehicle to vehicle...I am considering masking off a portion of the top of my Bronco's dash (hard plastic, recessed and flat on top with rediculous sloped partitions designed to keep stuff from moving, yeah right). I may spray an 8x10" area so it actually grips a phone...

could always try, it's plastidip after all lol and comes right off. I just took the plastidip off my fuel door after it being on there for a few months and you would never have known it was there
