Plastidip roof?

I have a silver 2009 mustang and I was wondering if I should plastidip the hood, roof, and trunk and maybe stock rims.. Should I?

Depends how well I can plastidip. Did some trial and error with the decklid and emblems. Emblems were hard to do so I'm going to debadge my car and do it then. I'm going to give the roof a try. I'll post pics in 2 weeks

My car looks identical to yours! I plastidipped the decklid but when I peeled off the tape it pulled some of the plasti dip off with it! And I tried the roof but I wasn't experienced enough with it! It turned out all stripy and dumb. So good luck! Make sure you find as many good YouTube videos as you can to learn how to do it. I failed multiple times and went through 4 cans of plastidip! Good luck.. but I was so pissed I ripped it all off with no pics to show! So sorry for the disappointment guys hahaha

I've had all my taillights tinted for almost five years already and always thought about the trunk emblem myself I just didn't know how it looked until I saw yours. Did you take it of or covered the surroundings, How did you do it?

I took the emblem off the car by wrapping a flat head in a clean rag or lint free cloth then removed the double sided adhesive foam stuff ford puts on at the factory cleaned the area up with 91% isopropyl alcohol, then taped off the actual pony emblem dipped the chrome section and reapplied with 3M double sided tape at most the process should cost like 20 bucks and Im pretty happy with the outcome

Don't plastidip lights unless its for a show. Even then idk if you should do it. You get almost no visibility if any at all!

I should of not tinted the headlights with vht nightshades, you can't see at all . I did it during the daylight, but at night when I had to go home from a party I found myself without visability . I should of read BSCHMIDTY'S comment a little sooner. luckily a friend had nail polish remover and took off a spot just for the ride home. The next day I took off the rest with paint thinner and the only reason why I did it in the first place was BC one headlight looks foggier than the other

Yeah I would never mess with the lights like that. I tinted the quarter markers and turn signals with tint spray. But bought AM light covers
