Well I was tired of the yellow emblem on my front grill so i decided to plasti dip it finally. It was pretty easy.
1st Picture is Masking off the chrome. I left a tiny bit of it so when i was taking it off the plasti dip wouldnt come off with it. View attachment 21942

2nd picture is the first coat. I waited 20 mins for each coat. Ended up doing around 5 coats of plasti dip.

3rd picture is the ending. Removed the tape. Rolled off excess plasti dip. Use a xacto knife or a tooth pick.

4th is back on the car. I do have to say it cleans up the front end very nicely.

Nice job looks good! You should have done something more long term like paint.

I was just texting out how it would look :smile: Thanks. I might switch over to paint soon. The black cleans out the front really well.

Once I get the emblem filled & cleaned up, I think I'll 'dip mine too... :yes:

Just make sure its not raining or humid. LOL had to run around so much so it doesnt get wet. and take it indoor to paint it correctly :lipsrsealed::rotfl:

So it was an okay day. Even though its raining i managed to do the rear emblem and trailblazer emblem. I like how its blacked out now. Will post pictures when its dry or when there is better lighting.
