Plasti dip is pretty amazing stuff. I did my wheels, interior "wood" trim, Definitely black out the headlight housing, But yeah its a great idea for a budget look, but I really didn't find the need for plasti dip anymore after i de badged and got aftermarket rims and such




I see you said you dipped your "wood" trim. Im looking to do that. How did you go about removing and putting the trim back on after you dipped it?

I pryed them off. Some pieces clip in like to the left of steering wheel. Others seem like there are plastic tabs that were melted onto the door. Hence prying them off. Just be careful and go real slow

Exactly. Hot glue should work
