So it's not necessary to scuff it up like some guys are doing, I suppose that takes away from the removing back to normal benefit of it.

Anyone paint just the bottom piece where the fog lights go? Wondering how well it will match with the top black on the bumper.

did my mirrors,bumper, valence, and bottom plastic. mirrors had the fake chrome backs cleaning metal I use water and soap and dry then go over with denatured alcohol planing on my flares tool box and bed rail caps, and door handle covers. look up dipyourcar.com these people also have many vids the tube I love this stuff if my truck body was in great shape I would do the whole thing it's pretty easy they dip a whole car on YouTube they sell kits also they spray there's with mediocre sprayers they sell it in the gallons and I believe they thin it out for the sprayers great stuff and clear coats are not good on it as far as peeling it off it will be harder to take off makes it chip more than peel like one other post said the glossifier is what the web Site recommends not a spokes person for them just trying to fully inform everyone on this stuff especially the clear coat issues. trucks look excellent gentlemen!
