plasti dipped
 
If I'm going to plasti dip the raised part of my hood is there any prep I need to do first or do I just spray it on. Also where can I buy plasti dip and how much does it cost. Thanks

its like 6 bucks per can and you can get it at home depo or lowes, theres tons of youtube videos online that help you with the prep, pretty much just cover what the outside of the square and make sure the first coat is a light coat and wash the jeep too :thumb:

I was going to plasti dip my wheel flairs but used under coating instead its about the same price but wont come off as easy. It also has a nice textured look. My friend I wheel with plasti dips his tacoma and has to redo it almost once a month.

what's under coating just a different brand? Would it work on the hood like I want

I got it at O rielys. Its to spray the undercarriage. Its more durrable but also more permanent. It will work. But its textured so if you have scrap metal or plastic. Id test it out first to see if you like it. I'll post a pic of my wheel flares and the can in an hour when i get off work for you.
