be sure you block the radiator so it doesn't get sprayed.

Figured I would post mine since I happened to have literally JUST got done with it tonight and came across your post. 6 layers of just standard black. Hate that stock chrome, your brushed version looks great! I'll take better pics in the sun if anyone is interested.

Looks good, yep the daylight pics would be nice. I was thinking of black too didn't know if it would be too much. Glad you didn't black out the emblem...looks better like that.

I will post some daytime pics in the AM tomorrow. It was the second time I had done it. The first time was a few months back (my first time ever playing with plastdip) and I did a poor job. Looks much better this time, and after removing it once feel much more confident in using it in the future. My chrome looked brand new underneath still!

I agree, I like the emblem. I have the color coded touch up paint and am considering taking it to a paint shop to have them blast it in white. Who knows, may even paint the NISSAN black into it. At least that is my perfect scheme :) all this would be ssuming I get rid of the chrome rear bumper... which will probably never happen unless I get rear ended. Until then I will let the logos tie the bumper into the truck haha

Thanks man! The black plastic side mirrors are already getting pretty scratched up from trail brush though. Might end up getting black protectors anyway.

Just so much chrome on our trucks
Not that much if you think about it - the main "chrome" is just the grille and rear bumper. No chrome window frames, no chrome door handles, no chrome wheels, etc.

Ugly silver SV rims may as well be chrome in my opinion, but I suppose you aren't wrong. I'm a complainer, Raine! Get rid of my chrome! :mad: think I'll be snagging level 8 mk6s here sometime soon.

Literally laughed out loud. I think the floor mats emblem could also be considered chrome. Blasting it.

Edit: thinking of my old mustang's floor mats. The Frontiers are embroidered, huh?

[Literally trying to think of what else is chrome without going out to my truck to look LOL]

The interior plasti.dipping game might be the niche hobby I've been looking for. Can't wait to plastidip those pesky chrome headlights...
