It doesn't last. Couple full pulls and ur exhaust will burn it off. I have seen some high temp painted ones that look sick. I'm thinking about a matte black spray for the tips myself.

That came out good! Are you gonna do the letter inserts? I think it looks pretty sharp as is though.

Tape it, spray like 3 light coats lightly, 10 minutes between coats, let dry, cut along tape line with razor blade and remove slowly. Its pretty easy if I can do it just about anyone can

One of the other options I've done is got a print out of the letters. The. Laid tape down on my desk overlapping (glass desk) then cut out the letters in tape. Then take the tape cutout to the car. Line it up, spray then pull off the tape right away before it drys. Saves from having to take a razor to the paint.

Thats a good idea about the letters. I usually let it dry with the tape on so I can put on multiple coats

According to the company, Plasti-dip's temp range is -30°F to about 200°F.
