    Fun with Plasti-Dip (badging edition)

    So, since I couldn't easily acquire an OEM March badge without a heap of effort, I decided to just say screw it and make what I've got look mad.

    So I blacked out my badging, and that terrible chrome V on the grille. I also did my fuel door, but I don't have a photo showing that handy.

    Here's the photos. $16 on a can of plasti dip, I did 5 coats on all my badging, my fuel door with 5 as well, and still have about 40% of a can left. Easy mod, looks sharp, and if I get sick of it, or have a chrome-hardon, I can just peel it off without any damage or residue.

    Here's the photos.

    A great idea using the Plasti-Dip, wish I had thought of it when I painted my spoiler.
    I like the front ''V'' and rear badge in the Plasti-Dip, not so sure on the Nissan logos and fuel cap though.

    I just dislike the look of chrome on a cheap vehicle, lol. It looks like Nissan is trying too hard. And that's the beauty of plasti-dip, if you do it, and find that you dislike it, you can peel it off in literally 30 seconds.

    I suggest everyone try plasti dipping something themselves, it's a really easy DIY project, and it's 100% reversible with NO repercussions.

    My Plastidip job on my grill looks... meh. I did four coats of plastidip black and two coats of glossifier.

    It ended up with what my buddy called an "orange peel" effect. Which wasn't what I was going for. The can can was spraying much larger particles than my last cans used in a plastidip project did. Will probably consider investing in a small air compressor and spraying kit for future projects like that.
