I dont use the dip. Ive just seen some people who have done it on forums and had good things to say.
Check tacomaworld, they have so many derp threads that they even consolidated many into a "plastidip megathread" i believe.
I did dip my front grill but it pealed off bc I couldn't get around some of the edges. But I did my rims and they are stay on there a long time
I did mine last week and it turned out good
I YouTubed plastic dip and it showed how to's so I gave it a try. I took the grill off. It has about 6 coats of it on and took it to pressure wash car was and nothing happened to it. Looks like factory
Remember the key to using plastidip is to apply a lot of coatings. Start with a light coating then add a bit more coverage with each coat. Typically 7 coatings or so will allow you to easily peel the plastidip off in the future.
Fog lights conversion to LED or HID? Has anyone done that yet? I'm going to plastidip my grill next week. I'll post before/during/after pics.
I'm running LEDs in my fogs.
I'm a little late but I did my grill, emblems, and dealer tag frame, and nuts that hold the steps down on the step bars. They sent silver with black....DROVE me nuts!
*screws* not nuts. Must be squirrel season
I am running LEDs for both fog and low beams. Got them from amazon. Works great and had no issues with load time as the HIDs can take up to a minute to light up. Cost about $50 for both sets. Just search h11 bulbs.
I'm running LEDS fogs... as well (yellow) from Amazon about 26$..
