    I've seen some impressive results on other forums and all over youtube, so I figured I'd try it. I've got a few coats on already - right over the chrome. I'll finish it up and take some pics. Stay tuned.....

    Haven't used the plasti-dip, but did 2 trucks with steel XL bumpers with duplicolor truck bed coating. They turned out great and are holding up well.

    Did you scuff the chrome first? And wouldn't it have been easier to pull the bumper? It's only 4 bolts...

    As far as prep goes, just a good cleaning with Windex and some rubbing alcohol on the chrome. No scuffing, no sanding, no priming. The idea behind this stuff is that you can apply over anything, and remove it without harming the original surface.... we'll see....

    Also doing another truck ... it'll either be a great outcome, or twice the headache....

    Also we tried to add an eye-brow to "Powastroka"s F250... I know we might get flamed for it, it's kind of a "ricer" thing to do... but it's removable!!!

    Is it just flat black when dry or is there some shine? I'm really thinking of doing my bumpers with this stuff

    It dries totally flat. No real shine at all. But it looks better than flat paint. It's got more shadowing or something.
