Lmao looks like mine the first time, jagged and uneven. Then I learned to coat, coat again fast, then peel tape before it dries. Looks good now

Where could I get my hands on some of this stuff? I don't remember seeing it at any store I've been to. I checked out their web site but I would rather go to a store than have it shipped.

Hey I hear those work wonders on your lights hahaha jk dont do it.... someone actually thought I was spray painting my tail lights black when I was using that lens tint. They told me "your going to get pulled over" I said "thats the point, I want to see if they can catch me before I run out of gas, an I just filled her up " lol

Plati-dipped my gas lip, doing the back is the next of many projects.

You have to pull off the tape while it is still wet

Could you spray some kind of clear coat on this slightly past the edge so that it wont peel up. I wanna make mine permanent. Also if I spray automotive clear coat over it. Will it blend in with the clear already on my car. Don't want it drying and looking funny.

You don't need 4 coats, do like 2 and peel it off before it dries.

You don't need to remove them if you don't want to, go to the dipyourcar.com website and watch the video on dipping wheels without taking them off
