Plasti Dip Accents

I have had my emblems and grill dipped matte black for a while now, decided to do my wheels.

Hopefully you like as much as i do.

Nice, I just dipped my GF's emblems and rear license plate area on hers today. I went with gunmetal plasti dip on her Basque red pearl. I am going to do the front grill sometime soon.

Jealous...of the house. I wish I could pull my RDX in the garage at an angle. I've got a center post right in the middle of my garage. It drives my nuts. Many a time have I ran into the MoFo while trying to work on the car. END RANT

Looks good. I'm a fan of the Plasti Dip black out.

Thanks guys, I just enjoy having a car that stands out in the lot... It is not fun parking next to another RDX and you cant tell yours apart from the other. I have been deeply considering the glossifier... I see a C63 AMG with gloss black wheels in my subdivision... Looks clean and mean.

It is very nice to have unobstructed 3 car garage, I actually have a lift on the single car side of my garage... which is out of view. Ill soon be installing two new front struts, rear shock & four new ATLP lowing springs all-around, soon as the parts are delivered. I might go gloss while the wheels are off.

And ill be posting more pics.

I wonder how this would look on a white one...my bezels around the fog lamps are so chipped from rocks. Would be a great way to clean it up.

You can always peel off the plasti-dip if you don't like it. I think that black accents look great on white cars.

The good thing about plasti-dip is that it's more chip resistant since it's somewhat flexible.

My grille and bezels were painted 8 months ago and still look great.

Did you remove any / all of the trim or do it while attached to the car? Seems like it would be easier to remove, but I'm not sure how to pull them off. The front grille seems like just a few bolts under the hood, the fogs wiggle like they're clipped in but I'm too afraid to yank on them for fear of breaking. I'm clueless on the rear one. Any tips?

Very Nice! My wife has an 08 Dark Metalic RDX and was considering doing black emblems and grill but wasn't sure it would look right. Obviously looks awesome! Thanks for the pics!

So I did the front...not quite sold on the beak but I definitely like the fogs. We'll see if it grows on me. Sorry for the bad pic, I need to get a better one.
