I think it turned out alright. I've never had anything other than polished tips, so I figure I migh as well try something new out.

Haha yup. I'll see if I like the all black look. The polished tails kind of went with the polished wheels, but I guess that's the beauty of plasti dip. I can just take it off I end up not liking it! haha

Im doing a few parts on my interior since I spilled an air freshener and faded away the black. Do very light layers cause it'll bubble up on edges. And allow COMPLETELY to dry before applying next layer.

I did some of my interior and I regret it. The dip on where you hold the door to close it peeled off. And it's hard to keep clean. It gets dusty quick and if you clean with a normal towel you will leave behind lint

You could always buy the towel specially made for plasti dip that doesnt leave anything behind. Or use one of those small air cans that blows dust away. Or a damp napkin or microfiber towel but light weight on it or it'll peal it away.

I'm going to dip it. I got hit a few days ago and I'm doing the work myself. Installed a new fender, popping the dents out and sanding it, and will dip the whole car as soon as I get everything smoothed out.

It's ok. First we tried heating it up and hammering them out which took out some. Idk the name of the tool but it's like a nail gun that goes into it and you pop it out

How big are the dents?? If they're not that big.. a plunger can work.. I did it on my dads truck the dent was like about a cd size.. first heat it up with a heat gun and then use the plunger.. hope that helps.. and to sand them u can use maybe some 80 grit and a grinder to get a smoother finish..
