I got a hair up my butt to see what my grille would look like in black b4 i have it vinyled. It looks great and plasti-dip is hard as heck to do and get it perfect on the grille. on the Bowtie it was easy.

Looks like your cap locks key is stuck, or else you have been breathing too much vapor from the Plasti Dip.

mine just look like normal flat black wheels. i did the who rear chrome area today including the bow tie. came out nice.


with the wheels you dont have to tape anything other than the valve stem and the lug nut interface surfaces.

i took my wheels off because i wanted the inside black and not silver. you can tape off the inside to protect the calipers. but i would dismount the wheels. you can do them one at a time.

Nice job. I love the look, but would never own a black car. We ended up getting a 2012 Mocha Steel 1LT.

Wife loves the chrome but hates the piss yellow/gold emblem. Ordered some silver vinyl to cover it. Since its her car chrome handles and shiny chrome wheels is what she wanted. Will be posting pics as the parts come in.

Thanks for sharing.

i think i hate black cars as much as i hate chrome. but the price was 4k of normal used trucks so i couldn't resist.

mocha steel is nice i almost bought one used but it had chrome 20" wheels and they wanted premium dollar for them and they were like how could you not like chrome? i dislike chrome because like black its a [email protected] to keep clean and purty.

post some pics up and make a gallery so we can see your new whip.

I like the black rims and blacked out emblems. How long will the plasti dip last on the rims. I am going to paint mine but i could not make up my mind between plasti dip or the Dupli color Chrome black out.
