    Hello All, new to the forum and enjoying it so far. Was looking to put a matte black grill on the truck. Looking for easy/cheap. Any ideas on what a good route to go might be.

    Thanks,

    Everyone seems to be doing Plastidip. It also has the benefit of peeling away cleanly if you don't like it.

    After spending a difficult day at work surfing the Internet for a solution, plasti dip is the route I am going to take. I will post pics after the weekend. Pretty pumped

    Looks good.

    I had PlastiDip on mine but this summer when i went on a road trip the bugs on it ruined it. When I washed the bugs off there were little holes wherever a bug had been, I think the acids in they're guts reacted with the PlastiDip.

    My back bumper lasted longer, but a recent car wash ruined that. The soap reacted with the dip and melted holes in it, so I removed it.

    Still have PlastiDip on my Silverado lettering and center caps on my rims.

    i used the dupicolor spray on my wheel wells. first time it didnt hold up, but i went back and sanded everything really well, used more coats and it has held up over a year now. the Plasti dip has held up for about a month, i am going to redo because there are some spots i dont like. . . but if you do around 8 coats, which is a lot, it should hold as long as you need.
