Normagene, I used Plasti-Dip for it all. I was told the Plasti-Dip is good up to 350 degs. I don't think the tips will get that hot, but will soon find out and let you know how it holds up.

Can take crazy amounts of heat like 1,800 degrees, overkill, sure, but better than peeling off at some point. It's a matte/flat black which is also what I want.

Thanks. I have some on order, 2/Red & 1/Charcoal. The gray is for my strut bar, did the end brackets w/the Blk BBQ spray paint. The red is going on the engine cover/fuse Bx cover etc... Used the Blk Plasti-dip for all my emblems/bowtie etc... Yeah, I'd like to know how it holds up on the tips after a long ride. I know Fonzie, Dipyourcar, said he did his tips on his Audi.

Just installed the long tube headers from Stainless Works what an awesome sound. They really did their homework everything bolted right up just like it was supposed to.

Love these tires! Much quieter and better wet traction!

I was thinking of doing a spinoff of this thread called, "Where did you go in your Camaro today?" since a lot of people tend to post things like that in this thread.( me included)
Good or bad idea?

Over the last coupla weeks I've:

Got the ABL half done (broke one of the LEDs somehow, just got the new one in the mail yesterday...the new connector beats the old one hands down...no more heat shrink tubing)

Gave the instrument cluster bezel a shot of Plasti-Dip

Added some "attention getting" stuff under the hood)

Installed LED license plate lights

Wired the DRLs (now HID driving lights) to the headlight circuit

Connected the "show mode" for the Afterburner taillights/sequential turn signals
http://www.chevyasylum.com/10Camaro/part07/Welcome.html

Did a coupla car shows
http://www.chevyasylum.com/cruisin/c...3/Welcome.html

And now I'm installing the multi-color headlight halo stuff.

Not much.
