Did you remove and paint or do it on the car? Curious as to keeping the overspray out of the "cavity" that the pipes sit in...

Thought about doing the same thing you did. How's it holding up with the heat? I don't know plastidips heat tolerance. Anything melt yet?

I love plastidip! I did it to my LS the bezels, wheels and the bowties in front and rear! I didnt want to paint them since I'll trade the car in for an SS once I'm old ready to handle a V8!

looks good. I did some more plastic dip over the weekend and I used the plastic dip metalic spray to go over the black and I think I like it better than just the black.
