Very easy. Lots of utube videos explains process in detail. Just take your time.

The hardest part is prep, taping off around the badges. The "Colorado" is kind of tough to get tape in all the letter crevasses. The bow ties are pretty easy.

As far as plastidip itself goes, it's great stuff. If you want an easy time peeling it off down the road, make sure to clean the surface properly before spraying and put on enough layers. More layers = easier to peel.
I've dipped multiple things from wheels to trim pieces to badges, it's surprisingly durable stuff and so widespread and easy to find now.

My dad even has his Porsche wheels dipped to match the decals (911 with GT3 graphics), looks great and has lasted through track sessions.

I am probably going to do all my badges soon along with the center chrome grill.


Also, if you ever do have any troubles peeling the dip, they make a liquifier that you can spray on and the dip comes right off. There's no reason to be nervous. Easy non-permanent stuff.

Autodip is another good alternative to plastidip. It is more of a vinyl look.

I just tried plastic dip the other day for its original intended purpose (covering handles on tools like pliers, that kind of thing). I was very surprised at how tough that stuff is! It really is like plastic when it's dry. At least the stuff in the can. I guess the spray is the same way???

If you spray enough coats, it's very durable.

I was actually inspecting my bow ties yesterday, seeing if they need any sort of touch up. I did mine well over a year ago and figured the front would have some nicks in it facing into the wind and all.....but it still looks like the day I sprayed it ( did about 5-6 coats) So yea...this stuff really does work.
