Plasti dipped

I have been considering changing up my side moldings, and today was the day. The nice thing about Plasti Dip is if you don't like it, you just peel it off.. the other thing with Plasti Dip is it doesn't always look that great. Here's the before pic:

And a couple in process shots, as well as the finished look. It's "whiter" than I thought it was going to be, also looks like I used Kilz or some generic ceiling paint.. not the thick skin I was hoping for, despite 3 really good coats. But after 3 cans I'd had enough, so off the masking came.

It's actually growing on me a little, I dunno.. maybe I should do black next time. I look forward to your comments.

Looks good.

But I think you're right. The black might have been better. Would have matched the rest of the trim on the truck. (Bumpers, slider, etc.) I think that the lines would have flowed nicely together in black. Just my $.02
Looks good though.:thumb:

I say go for the black and see how it looks. I think it would look better, but the white looks good too.

I just plasti dipped my entire runner and I love how it looks I used black though.

Looks better than the silver. My first thought was black too, but I photochopped it and I'm not so sure:

Good idea there, Martin.

Now that I look at it… I dunno either.
Maybe it should just be sprayed with black bed liner all the way from the trim down to the sliders...

I think just the trim and the wheels would look better. I can't believe I'm having this conversation about painting wheels.

The 100 Series MUD forum is taking over. Next it will be bulbs and how big of a tire can you fit without rubbing! :confused:

EDIT: Trim and wheels only. My vote.
