Not a fan of chrome on the tundras so I dipped everything. Took a long time but it looks great. Also painted my calipers red.

So, the white plasti-dip and glossifier was close to Super White?

The more Super White tundras I see with plasti-dipped bumpers and grille surround is driving me crazy. They all look so good without the chrome. I'm gonna have to set aside a weekend to do this. Truck looks really good. Did you take the bumpers and grille surround off to paint it, or just leave it on the truck and tape it off?

My bumper is factory white. I removed my grill to pd it. Very easy to remove and easier to work on.

Gotcha... I am wanting to paint my bumpers black since I have black fender flares, but there will be gap between the front of the flares and the bumper. I can't decide whether to paint that whole piece between the bumper and the grille surround black so it ties the flares in with the bumper or what to do.. :confused:

I say dip it and if you don't like it you can just peel it off. It's sometimes hard to visualize it in your head. It's a lot nicer when the final product is actually on the truck.

Thanks and what a game it was. The last 10 minutes almost gave me a heart attack. Leafs in Seven!

You did an awesome job! That truck looks great. I am going to tackle my rims one of these days. While I'm at it, you've given me some motivation to paint the calipers!
