    Promised yall pics! here they are, It's dry but not fully cured. I went ahead and made my own stickers to cover up the dents on the left side, i figured why no make it semmetrical so i made 2 sets. I accually tried hammering out the dents, but this bumper is so damn thick its virtually impossible. Hahah. Too bad Its 11 at night so I can't put it back onto the truck and get pics, but thats the first thing i will do tommorow :party:Let me know what yall think :rofl:! Honestly It looks way better than what I expected. I want to put it onto the truck so bad!!

    The black looks alot better imo, yea you could have done better on the patches but overall I think you did a good job, plus the stickers actually work on the bumper :great:

    It does look better. I think you need something to break up all that black. Maybe a small white stripe or something. The stickers do break it up a little.

    Yea. haha i was accually rushing to paint it before the weather dropped any more. If it was just 10 degrees colder the paint wouldnt have dried. And thanks man :) I personally like the stickers!! haha

    ***UPDATE*** i started having issues with the plasti dip about 7 months later. in direct sunlight, the whole bumper appeared to look 'rattle canned' just from weathering, so i peeled it all off and I professionally painted it with my air compressor and a pre-mixed can of dupli-color jet black car paint. it looks just as good as plasti-dip and is still flat back since i didn't clear coat it. I figured pictures would be useless since it looks the exact same.
