Default More Plasti Dip

Well it's been awhile since I've been on here, been pretty busy with school. It finally warmed up a little here so I dipped my front bumper, but it's already scuffed from putting the painted cap back on so I'd like to just get the bumper painted to match along with the grill, maybe this summer that'll happen... Here's some pics, enjoy!

I love it!!! Nice job, Josh! Now you gotta dip that chrome grille to match your bumper.

Thanks! That's my next mod lol but I'd like to just have the grill and both bumpers painted to match; only thing is I don't know how much that'd cost me

Probably more then you want to spend. That's why I am being el-cheapo and sticking with Plasti-dipp. Can plasti-dipp the bumpers and grill probably 40 times before it works out to the price at getting it all painted. If you do enough coats on it, it becomes pretty strong. I think when I redo my bumper because I have to fix my fog light plasti and install tow hooks, I am going to put my 6-7 layers on just to be safe.

Yeah, I've been trying to get my uncle to do it for me because he manages a body shop at a Dodge dealership and could get the five finger discount lol and I've been doing 4 coats with everything I've done and it's held up pretty good, I guess sliding the painted cap on is what scuffed it, but it's not that noticeable. If I ever redo it, I'll prolly do at least 6 and see how that holds up...

I'm assuming that you mean the body colored upper bumper when you say "painted cap"? Why did you remove it at all? You could just peel the overspray off the painted part...

Yes, that's what I'm talking about. And the cap was already off because I had my uncle paint it, and from my experiences with plasti dip, it probably wouldn't have seperated between the plastic pieces and the bumper very good, if that makes any sense. I figured the dip would fill in the small gap between the valance and bumper, and fog light plastic and bumper, like it did when I tried dippin the tailgate handle...
