Bhlm is baked headlight mod.... bake your headlights in oven to remove lens.... then paint the Chrome bezels. As far as the plastidip.... wash the area then wipe with alcohol. It peels easier with heavier coats.....

I am tossing around either plastic-dip, powder coat, or rhino line my chrome front and rear bumpers. Any ideas or reasons for one over the other? The truck is the magnetic grey.

Plasti-dip is the least expensive$$.

If I don't like how it looks after a Maine winter, I'm gonna peel it all and go with powdercoat next summer. I was quoted $200 each for my bumpers. I spent about $50 for 3 cans of white plasti-dip and 2 cans of glossifier to do my front.

The last three cans of white dip I have bought were horrible.

The tip clogged, it spit globs. My skid plate looks like ass.

Previously, I did my mudflaps, intake tube and fuse box lid with no problems.

The voices in my head don't like you.

I black out the chrome and Grey on my grille and left my emblem chrome. It is just bearly enough chrome to not bug me... I blacked my emblem out and it made my front end look cheap and unfinished.. I peeled the plasti dip off of the emblem and it looked 100% better.

I just finished my front bumper. Here are a couple pics. Came out great. I did a lot of coats. Used about 2-1/2 cans. So far so good on how it's holding up.

Does the air temperature have to be above a certain warmth to use this product? I want to do my bumpers but I am wondering if I have to wait until Spring..........or just do it in the garage and get all high from the fumes?

Yeah it needs to be a certain temp. Or you will notice that if it is too cold the dip will not spray on evenly and flatten out correctly. I did mine in my garage with the heater on and just left in between coats.
