    I plasti dipped the chrome bar above the trunk but between letting the layers dry the dip would kind of spread out in one specific spot revealing the chrome. Does the dip react differently to the chrome or was that one spot maybe not cleaned well enough? Also I have a 2011 1lt so I don't have...

    Been meaning to do the interior parts for a while now but after checking out the forums it seemed the only way to get the speaker trim was to take the door off. Stumbled on a great thread that showed the plastic pieces can pop right off... Saved so much time and instead of using Vinyl I used...

    Ended up doing the fog light covers and mirrors over the weekend. Had an extra can of plastidip. Any thoughts? Was a pain , had to tape it up and spray from outside, was too stubborn to take out the covers. Now the car matches the interior pieces too .

    Well, I was bored today and found myself wanting to dip my car. So, I put some eyelids on the cruze. I did the basic taping off, but for a clean line, you have to peel the tape when it's wet. And being that the plastidip doesn't match my color, it's black. Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App
