    :/

    Recap cuz I think we're going in circles here:
    Current ones are textured. Sanding will kill the texture because there are major scratches.

    New ones: I don't want to paint

    I agree with Mikie. Try and find used STI skirts in the same color.

    Yep, I am searching right now. Most look as dulled and scraped as mine though. Hard to tell.

    Plasti-dip on the license plate delete took a bit of a beating, it seems. Gravel and/or high velocity bug splatter, I guess.

    Tore off the Dip and the delete's as good as new, so I'm re-dipping it tonight.

    The corners inside the lettering - the X in particular - were a PITA to remove completely; FYI green tape (or blue) does it.

    looks good. after having my plate delete on for a year i still have no chips or anything, but the plastidip does help im sure somehow lol. What did u do to make the gold underneath? gold paint? dont think i want to paint my bumper plate area yellow so i think im going to have to paint a piece of thin plastic or something to put behind there... i like it though. ive been tossing that idea around since i got the plate delete, just never took the time to actually do it..

    as for the stock exhaust i didnt have time friday so i plan on going tmmrw after work.

    Hi Mark! Welcome home :-)

    The gold is sticker, like for lettering & wrap.

    & no hurry for the exhaust, keep me posted.
    It would probably require some dismantling for shipping, I'll understand if that's too much of a pain.

    & I noticed your scuffless delete... I'd hate to find out the hard way, so, I figure, the dip only takes a few minutes (not counting wait time between coats)
    xoxo

    Too thick and the delete won't rest flush on the bumper / too thin and the paint'll crack.

    I happen to have just the exact size of sticker left in yellow! (measured it against the delete!)
