Not perfect, but pretty darn close.

Looks like it came out pretty good. I've been thinking of doing the same thing to mine to match the black paint on my truck. What kind of prep did you do/how many coats?

be currious to see how it holds up durability wise, my chome caps seem to be bug magnets.

Awesome job! I've been wanting to do the same thing to the chrome grill. Too much chrome for my taste. Just afraid to mess it up. Please let us know about the prep and any tips you might have.

I just cleaned the caps with glass cleaner and sprayed about 10 lights coats. Plasti dip is about $5 a can. It was much easier than I thought it would be.

I'll definitely be doing this one soon... think it will stand up to a pressure washer when spaying down the truck or is it easily peeled off?

Yes, I did my grille inside pieces and use the big rig wash near work and so far so good. (its multiple guys with pressure washers)

Did it to my grill. Too much of a difference from the Tuxedo black. Stuff comes right off with mineral spirits.

Hash Brown - Great job! That's exactly what I want to do to mine. Now just need to be brave enough to give it a shot.

I love this stuff!!!
I have done my grill wheels badges and much more on my tundra. Wash area good with soap and water dry then wipe with alcohol and spray 3/5 coats with 15 min intervals. Wash with soap and water first week after that pressure wash like normal paint.
I have had it on for over a year got a few rock chips in grill but put a dab of paint thinner on finger rub area of chip to smooth dip and clean an prep like first time then just spray and touch up area.
If your doing badges or something like that mask about an inch from badge on paint. Spray but between coats run a tooth pick around badge an paint so when your done you can rub and peel it right off the pained surface.
nice thing about the dip you don't like it peel it off. Good luck hope this helps
