Yessir! What ride do you have? I travel both north and south quite often so I may have run through your town

You are talking about the rubber trim correct? Did you use plasti-dip from a spray can? You take the trim off or just tape it up good? What kind of prep did you do? This seems like a really good solution to mine which, are faded badly.

I plasti-dipped the chromed plastic trim around the windows. Prep with plasti dip is VERY easy. Not much you need to do. I prepped around the outside and covered any cracks. Basically planned for anykind of overspray you might have. If you cover the other areas with the 3-4 coats like the trim, you can just cut your lines with a knife and peel it off. I'll post up a video of what I mean when i can.

Plasti Dip is from a $6 spray can you can buy at Menards. This is a video i made for my INC group just to show them an advantage over paint in the prep work. Check it out at:

Nobody works on my car but me! Except for special circumstances like tire changing, welding, or things I dont want to deal with (spark plugs).
