    Got bored, started plasti-dippin

    So yesterday I plasti-dipped my back emblems as well as that little hood scoop trim piece (dont know the exact name). My roof and side mirrors were already wrapped in matte black. Let me know what you guys think! My next endeavor will be to plasti-dip the induction cowls that are in front of the front tires. Does anyone know how to remove these?

    I was actually thinking about doing the same exact thing. Did you take that part of the hood scoop out or did you just mask it off? Lol, better question is, can it even be taken off? It looks awesome though, I like the look.

    I took it off. It was actually very easy! here is the link that I used. DIY hood scoop insert removal and scoop wrap.

    I washed my car again today and it is holding up very well.

    That's awesome! Great job btw. I have a friend that paints cars so I was thinking about getting this permanently done if I liked the plasti dip. I have a WRB and I'm not sure if I'd want a glossed finish on it or not, flat black might just look better.

    Yeah they flat black looks really nice on our cars as an accent piece. You could do plasti dip and if you don't like it just peel it off. That's the best part about this stuff! I could see gloss looking real nice on WRB though.

    i really want to do the scoop also, I tried 'photoshopping' it before, not a great job and i really wanna see it in person to get a better idea (plasti-dip would be the best idea I suppose)

    What were you thinking about doing with the scoop, flat black or glossy? Whatever you end up doing, post pics, I really want to do the same thing, leaning towards a glossy look.

    Nice work, that turned out great! I was about to point you to Stu_Gotti for how to remove the cowls, but I saw your post on his thread already.

    Ooo I want to do this! How do I go about it? Myself or vendor? Never heard of this technique. I have WRB car as well think I'd go flat black on scoop.

    First step: Go to local hardware store and buy some plasti-dip lol

    Step 2: follow this dudes instructions on how to remove the piece from the car. DIY hood scoop insert removal and scoop wrap.

    Step 3: Apply plasti-dip to the piece. One coat roughly every 20-30 minutes. (I did a total of 4)

    Step 4: Let dry in a dry place that is out of direct sunlight and has little to no wind for a couple hours

    Step 5: Re-apply part and put the heat shield back on

    Step 6: Go to an empty parking lot and take some pics while feeling accomplished

    Thanks man! I appreciate the feedback. I was ready to get flammed pretty hard but so far everyone has liked it. As long as I like it though is what makes it worth while. But you are right, now I look at the car and Im like "damn, how would that piece look if I were to make it black?" haha. My next course of action is to do the little induction pieces in front of the wheels. Then I will do the bottom of the bumper like your saying. It gives it a nice clean look.

    Not sure how I feel about this just yet...I have seen one car locally (SWP '11 sedan) that did this....it was kind of distracting when driving in the opposite direction.....a big gaping black hole on an otherwise white car. Though, it does also look kind of menacing.
