I have had mine on a week now no problems looks awesome, but just like he said above me DON'T let it set after u paint the edge over the tape it will mess up. Paint the middle area first then work your way to the side do a quick layer of paint and pull the tape off while it's wet. If it's to light put some more tape on after it's good and dry spray and pull tape while it's still wet

Thanks, I plan on doing a complete blackout with vinyl. That front point on the bumper makes it a pain to fit vinyl, so I used spray vinyl its really easy too... almost want to do the front and rear blackout with it... too bad I already bought the huge sheet of vinyl

I have to disagree, I also want to b.o the r.p and I would definitely b.o the bezels. Ive seen a b.o panel before with chrome and imo it doesnt look good.

You know, I was thinking for the past week about doing this, and I'm going to this coming weekend.

Monster, if you pinstriped in chrome on the fascia on top of the plastidip all the way down, it would look fire. Keep the pattern going all the way down.

That way it looks like the whole grill extends down to the bottom. I mean, any decent pinstriper could do that in an hour or two - I'm telling you. I mean, shi-, your car looks great enough, but...someone photoshop that.

I had the idea for my car before I saw this thread tho, just wanna say...

Lol I started this tread hoping someone actually made this vinyl piece and instead you guys came through with a cheaper and potentially better solution. With all your success trying this, I think I'm gonna have to do it to my summit white. I mean, what can it hurt since it comes off so cleanly if I screw it up

I emailed BigWorm, and he did say he's working on this or a piece like it.

One good thing about doing this is you wont have to worry about rock chips or bugs stuck in the paint there.one good side of it.I may give it a try.

Well I won't be able to get sunny pics anytime soon... supposed to rain all week:(

But I can get you a higher quality picture That one was taken at work with my phone.

I also started out hoping some one made a vinyl, but I think it would suck to try to shape it around the point. Plasti-dip rocks!

ummm.. maybe... Although I know you can just take it back off, I'm not really the type of person who wants to go through all that time/effort just to step back and go.. Yuck..

So, I'll patiently wait and experiment through you guys
