    Silver Plasti Dipped Aeros project on Silver Model 3

    Finished changing my black Aeros to Silver (Bright Aluminum) using Plasti dip! I didn't like how the black Aeros looked on the Silver Model 3, so I decided to dip them and think it turned out much better than the originals. Before: I didn't like the black Aeros, so I removed them and...

    Has anyone tried to Plasti dip their wooden trim?

    Just curious if anyone has ever tried to Plasti dip their wooden trim to a different color. Other than properly masking the surrounding areas, it seems like it shouldn't be too difficult to do. Compared to other options (removing the trim then painting vs. wrapping), could dipping be a more...
