Definitely looking into plasti-dipping the lara, want to do the wheels, emblems and grill. Has anyone done that to theirs and how did it turn out? Thanks

For a second I thought you were gonna dip the Whole Car LOL

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

when you mean black out the headlight housing - is that the process where you put it in the oven and all that?

just make sure your coating is even and it should come out pretty nice...
It's all part of a four year plan, and 4 years don't go by fast enough...

I did my grille, rear emblem and the bar in the bottom "grille." Posting pictures is such a pain so I don't have any to post, but I can email them if anyone is interested

Well it's plastidip. I mean if I don't like it ill just pull it off. :lol:

I already have my side mirrors done. Have been for months now. Holding up well.

I might even keep changing colors every other week. Its might get a little expensive. :D
