Dipped my front grille, window trim, rear trim and emblems.
That's a dark car for sure!
I find it interesting that you left the chrome under the doors untouched. (There was much grinding of teeth regarding this during mid-2012.)
Looks cool, I didn't know you could black chrome with a spray like that.
How durable is it? I looks like it would last a year or so, and then start to peel at areas.
Can you get some closer shots? I want to see the final finish.
It's actually extremely durable. I've had the a single application on a pair of S4 wheels for over 28 months
any preparation work involved or just mask and spray away.
That looks great. I suspect mine would not turn out as nice and even.
There is a step by step video on youtube - Tesla Model S Black Out Window Trim with Plasti Dip - YouTube
I dont want to post the video feed here as I am not an authorized TMC vendor and want to respect the forum rules.
Fonzie, did you plastidip the door handles as well?
The video shows him with a pre-spray product. Though he does not mention it in his wrap-up pricing.
The PreDip spray is not 100% necessary, it just works very well. Soap, water and then rubbing alcohol can work too
Looks like he dipped the handles
watched all your videos. bought all my dip from you and now my model s gets even more attention than before.
I have a feeling I am going to do this eventually too. Unfortunately Tesla used very cheap chrome trim, and I have chips all over my chrome. It looks awful up close. So I'm going to have to hide that as it gets worse.
I also saw a COMPLETELY blacked out P85 at the Queens service center yesterday. It was fully wrapped in black matte (aka full car wrap), plus all the trim work was blacked out, blacked out windows, I didn't get a closer look but either it had the grey 21" wheels or the wheels were blacked out too, the Tesla emblems were painted red, the brake calipers were painted red, the "grey trim areas" (aka the rear diffuser areas , sides, front), everything was blacked out. (I didn't look up close to see if this was carbon fiber or black matte wrap). There wasn't a piece of chrome left on it. It looks like the one above, just a few steps further with the rear diffuser area plus the painted tesla logos and brake calipers. Was that any of you guys?
Has anyone tried putting Rog's Tesla Wheel Cap decals on plasti-dipped rims? I already ordered them and am planning to put those on when the car arrives next month.
Watched the video and seems simple enough and cost wise, you can't beat it. How did you do the door handles? Did you tape them off as well? I was thinking of doing the vinyl gloss wrap on all the chrome but that cost vs doing the plastidip is ridiculous.
Did you dip the entire door handle or just the front?
