I'm tempted to finish it off and just do the Full Evo, looks sick RawDawgnX
thanks man i like it for now, no one where i live has that mod so thats y i did it. cause there 3 other xr that look like mine. so i had to set myself aside from all of them.
yeah, mine's a little different right now but I really want it to stand out like that! haha
apparently I got a little squirrelly with the twirl tool in the first picture......there isn't really a twirl on the grill or bumper...
I like the look of that RR. Got any other pics from diff angles?
nvm refresh ftw
wonder what it would look like with the fender flairs and gas cover red
maybe do the mirrors black 2
thats a little plstidip overboard IMO... painting the flares and panels look like the base model toyotas... the stripes was good. luckily though it isn't permanent
at the end of the day, it's your boat
I like that man! You did a really good job with the dip. And like GR said it's not permanent and you can take it off whenever! Good job!
thanks, I didn't want to do the flares or bottom panels but I have the infamous pink flares on the passenger side and this is a cheap way to hide and protect.
i wanna plasti-dip my chrome grill emblem. do i have to sand the emblem at all before i spray it or do i just clean it off? also is it easy to just pop it off the grill or should i tape around it and spray it on the truck?
If u don't want the plastidip to ever come off then sand it first. Also u can easily pop the embalm off the grill, there's 3 tabs I believe that u just pinch and it pops right off
thanks man! i just hate chrome emblems, bumpers, rims.....haha pretty much anything chrome. i'm tempted to try the lower evo mod with the plasti-dip as well. not sure if its something i should jump into or get proffessionally done :dontknow:
The ego mod is pretty simple to do, and there's a write up for it in the how to threads. U just won't want to sand the paint when doing this mod so that it can be peeled off later down the road. They also sell plastidip clear but I've only seen it at NAPA auto parts. I've been thinking of using the clear plastidip so I can spray a clear bra on my front end and any other rock chip proned areas
well than if it can be peeled off than its definitely worth a try. that sure would make clear plasti-dip a great paint protector than. any idea on how much plasti-dip i would need to do the lower evo mod?
I'd say at least 2 cans, just make sure u follow the direction on the can by allowing 30 minutes minimum between coats. Yes it can easily be peeled off when dry, it really does turn to rubber. Also make sure that u take the tape off quickly because if not when u take the tape off it will pull the rest of the paint off with it
i'll remember that. thanks! i don't plan on keeping my nasty chrome rims for too much longer but maybe i should try plasti-dip on them as well
On the rims I would consider scuffing them up so that the paint doesn't come off which can easily be done while washing them
ok so if i do the evo mod should i clean the bumper by hand to avoid peeling it off?
Yup def don't use any power washer or direct hose spraying on the edges. I don't have mine done and I'm not positive that u would have issues spraying water on it but figured u can't be too careful. My bro did his rims and hit one with a power washer and some of the paint came off
