thinking of a plastidip project

Ok I recently pulled off my saleen wing cause I needed to fix the third brake light for my inspection sticker. I have always loved the new edge without a wing so ima leave it off. I need to fix all the holes with fiberglass and instead of paint I think I will plastidip the trunk lid and roof. Anyone have any pics of this kinda job? Opinions?

Right now I have clear tape under the trunk holes to keep water out so I was going to silicone the holes in with the tape to keep the silicone in place. Then if I rewing just pop the silicone out

Use duck tape on the holes, you can buy it to match the plastic dip.

Buy the nylon plugs, and sand em smooth and flat, and use silicone to seal em.

Just be careful, If you ever do plan on repainting, that silicone will ruin your day.

Well its yellow and had 10k original miles on it when i bought it in may 2012, it was owned by a ford dealership owner in my area and he bought it for his wife for their anniversary back in 2004 and she didnt want to scratch it so kept it in the garage till i got it. Got super lucky! Love it! Plus she could probably have a cobra if she wanted lol with owning a dealership and all.
