I'm was trying to use the heat gun to get the color back on my running boards and it's making the non slip part warp. Is it too cool outside? I was thinking maybe I should wait until it's warmer. Has anyone had success with this style step? It's on a 2003 LT ext. ThanksView attachment 27170

This stuff will work magic on rubber and plastic and its only $7 at walmart.

- Walmart

on second thought idk about on running boards because it leaves a slick surface. Still this shit is the bomb!!

PlastiDip on the running boards? That would not last long..

For my running boards, and the plastic cladding on the rest of the Voy, and my wifes Aztek, I was a product called Back To Black

back to black makes the step really slick. I used the heat gun on the bumpers and it came out like new, but when I started the step the non stick slide, which is glued on, started to buckle.

Dupl-Color Trim Black paint. I've had to have said this a thousand times. Once, done. End thread.

Just for the record, a propane torch works much faster. More Power! :yes:

I've used Back to Black on all of my 360's. It works well but doesn't last that long on the outside surfaces. Under the hood things stay a lot 'blacker' for longer. I probably do it two to three times per summer then ignore it all winter. I've used it on the running boards as well.
