That looks really good. But you could have just polished them and they would have turned out the same.

I like it!! Very clean looking.. did you remove the trim pieces to coat them..or how did you do it?

EDIT! .. nvm..I was wondering how you used the dip to paint.. I've never seen it in a rattle can..just the can that you DIP the tool handles into..

Pretty cool idea. I think this is a really cool way to test out certain ideas, and then if you like it peel it off later and have it painted.

I agree.. I bought a can of Duplicolor shield (temporary spray on bra protection) for that purpose

A little polishing compound (with a moist applicator) and elbow grease will produce the same effect.
Make sure you wax it afterwards!!

Hmm, interesting idea. I'd like to do mine, they are starting to look weatherworn, and I'd like to do the panel at the rear of the back door window. How does that panel attach, anyone know? I can't find any studs inside, do they snap or clip on? I'd rather take them off and repaint them. I might try this stuff for other parts though.

Yeah it peels off easy if you want it off. But its strong enough to make it through the high pressure car wash here.

Considering that my doors are two different shades of fading dark gray (one's from another car). this might be just the ticket.

Still don't see why you would go through all the trouble of masking and painting to use a product that will peel off

To dummy things up and "test" if you want them I can understand, otherwise why not just use paint?
