|dealerjoe||I've thought about that. I'm planning on removing the plasti dip this week. Still like the uniqueness but due to being lazy when waxing last month the edges are hazed and I might have chipped the paint off the lower lip on my door so I need to get to touching that up anyway.|

|junglefoot||DealerJoe, would be cool to see the doors reversed as well. Do the top and have it stop at the line of the top!! Nice job!|

|dealerjoe||Why stop at the grille?|

|Wizzywillz||Nice pics everyone, I'll be doing this in the next few weeks. Hopefully it comes out as good as all of yours!|

Could the plasti-dip potentially melt since I'm in Mississippi? I mean it gets easy 110 or higher in the summers here.
Also, how does the plasti-dip hold up to giving the jeep a good carwash?

|GPJeep||I've found that loose gravel kicked up into it will scratch it, but it will protect the original paint!!|

|shacklyn||Just got the Jeep and grill good and dirty with mud and road salt. I took it to the local self-wash and blasted the grill with the highest pressure-washer setting. No chips, scratches, or anything else. The Plasti-Dip is great so far.|

|PittJeep||Same here, grille is holding up great after more than a month. My biggest concern was what would happen when i scrubbed it while washing the jeep and so far no problems at all|

|NFRs2000NYC||It has been about a month since I did my grill. It has been through rain, medium snow, tons of road salt (including a thick coating on the grill itself), a few washes, and it still looks untouched.|

Those with the plasti dip on the grill - How is the durability long-term? Also, how easy is it to clean bugs and other stuff off?

|Old_Man||Great! Thanks guys.|

|NFRs2000NYC||Its not a big deal if you overspray the rubber. Plastidip will not have any effect of the seal. If anything, it will keep the OEM seal alive longer, and protect it from dry rot.|

A couple more pics for you guys. In the first, you can see why you need to use Goo Gone - or a similar product. I had road tar in places I couldn't see when the grill was mounted.
The second pic is a close-up of the finished grill. Someone asked to see pics of the weather strip on top of the grill. If you look closely at the top of the second picture, you can see some of the Plasti Dip overspray. I didn't tape mine off.

That being said, I've seen several videos on YouTube of guys painting wheels, & they speed alot of time taping off the tire. Don't bother, just put on 4 - 5 coats on the wheel, then once dried, rub your finger over the tire near the wheel edge & the overspray easily separates from the rubber tire & peels right off.

|Old_Man||Looks great guys. How do you deal with the top edge, where the rubber strip is? Can anyone post a picture of how that area turned out.|
