Funny, and I get you colored the black shoes. However, what's up with the second pair of shoes at the bottom - random?

It's the final product...the Plastidip kind of shrunk up and showed the under texture. My wife liked that better actually.

I kept it for probably 4 or 5 months I think before switching it up. My friend did his at the same time and still has it on. After about two weeks, it is pretty much on there until you rub a curb or peel it off.

Nice job.... you think it will stick to chrome tips? If so did you use a undercoat?

Those are my chrome tips. It sprays right on (several coats). No undercoating of anything else.

Just spray it on and it's on until you decide to take it off.

Looks great! I wish I would have seen this before buying Black tips! That also helps for maintaining OEM look and clean up when needed. I am jealous!

I might try this in a week or two. You can find 4 black cans on amazon for 51 bucks. I want to do my side markers and wheels. Will post pics when I get around to doing this project.
