I also bought the glossifier but didn't add it. Do you have pics? I'd love to see if it'll change my mind.

I did a brushed silver fuel door on my TJ the other day, now the wife wants me to do our bathroom countertop. Anyone have any experience using it on something like this?

That steering wheel came out pretty good.


So, has anyone tried this stuff on coil springs?
I would love to paint my springs red (Plasti-dip comes in red) but the former owner painted them with some sort of rubbery undercoating stuff so using regular paint is a no go.

We used Nightshades on all of the lights except for the headlights. Turned out nice!

Turn signal light shines through fine at night, a little rougher to see during the day...

I used Nightshade on mine. Works great.


Even held up to the pressure washer at VERY close range...and the pterodactyl size bugs that I was removing with it. So did the Plasti-dip by the way.

lol, yeah, about that... you see, stuff keeps coming up. Like the three funerals that I had to go to this past weekend, and the wisdom tooth extraction that I am about to go to now... trust me, I would love to. I need the distraction. It's just been crazy and non-stop over here.

I don't think it will last too long on such a used surface. Listen, it costs almost nothing and is completely removable. Give it a shot.

Yeah I will probably test it tomorrow to see how it looks. I figure worst case (best?) is i somehow ruin the ugly counter and have an excuse to go buy a new one, best case is it works well and looks good!

Shiny tires on a jeep should merit a fine!

I installed KC Daylighters under the windshield a while back. Even though the backs are black, I'd still get glare in the bright sunlight so I Plasti-Dipped 'em,

Did you have all of them removed? I just had one removed and he did a filling in another tooth while he had me numb.
I have been having a lot of dental work done, I think it stems from damage done in a motorcycle wreck back in '99. I'm getting to know my dentist pretty well. He's thinking about buying a Jeep. I may be helping him pay for it.

I'd give the office a jingle in the morning, were I you. Sounds like you may have Dry Socket! That hurts terribly when I had all four of mine out over 20 years ago. Basically, the skin has not closed properly and the nerve is exposed. Ouchie ouch!
