GrassKicker The easist way I found to not get overspray on the tire is to take a old deck of playing cards, shove them between rim and tire and go to spraying, let dry after a couple of coats, pull the cards out.

GrassKicker I sprayed my four wheeler rims with plasti-dip 2 years ago, it has held up good thru all the pressure washing and everything I put it through.

MFG What prep for cowl and hinges?

Beach-Bum how did you spray all those things? ive worked with plastidip alot and know you cant tape it. did you just over spray everywhere and peel off what wasnt wanted?

Rakk17 The hinges and cowl look great. What prep did you do to PD them? I'm thinking about doing mine today.

Understandable, but with no lights turned on, I can make out red. When the brake is pressed, lights up well, in direct sunlight. Even just turning the lights on without pressing the pedal, it lights up great.

GoldenSahara00 Or retint them, much lighter. Mine are more of a smoked orange than anything. And my sides are untinted to help.

As dark as those rear tails are, I bet the drivers behind you on a sunny day will beg to differ...

I used to have my tails done like that on my old truck...my friends thought it was cool until they noticed they couldn't see my taillights lit up until they nearly rear-ended me a couple times. Then they just kept their distance.

Also had a state trooper follow me for nearly 10 miles while on a trip out of state...I just maintained my lane and never slowed down, but I know he was just waiting to see how bright they were so he could nail me. I had friends who were following me then too and they said you could BARELY see any light from em unless the sun was behind the clouds. They look cool, I admit, but I'd save yourself a ticket and put a set of stock lenses back on. I nearly rear-ended a guy on a busy road who decided to wait until the last minute to brake and make a left turn. I was FUMING...

"WAY TO SIGNAL YOUR TURN JACKASS!!!!!!!"

...when I was nearly against his bumper, I realized I could vaguely see his turn signal flashing.

I replaced my own taillights shortly after.
