Came out pretty good, i didn't have a microfiber rag, so cleaning the runover is little more difficult, but it does go out. I'll post pics later.

Done. it's too late to take a couple of pics, i tried it, and the only thing i get is a very reflective license plate. i'll snap a couple of pics tomorrow morning.
Cleaned all the runover with a big cloth, so i'll mask some more when i do the windows trim. the portion that gave more troubles was the front of the hood, i guess because that's the portion that sees more chips and crap during daily driving, the back was a cake with a little rag i had. in any case, a little bit of wax took care of everything i didn't see in the front anyways. Again, had i know of this stuff before, and i'll have literally a dipped car haha

Mehhhh, like a real bronze. I know in one of his videos it says you can spray it over black to achieve a bronze-like finish but...I'd have to see more than one example. Better yet, I'd want to see it in person.

Lol thanks, I'll have to wait until next week to plastidip the window trims, our weather just entered sucks mode, with nothing but rain daily until Sunday, so now i'm like a junkie waiting for a fix

This product makes newbies like me to look like a Pro, so i'm confident the trims would look good, and i don't have to worry too much about the runover, another + to the plasti dip stuff. i'll mask either way on the big spots around the window trims anyways, but i'll use the same approach as before, leaving around 1" of space between the trim and paint, i haven't tried a larger section yet, so will see how it goes.

Wonder what that pre-dip spray is...
I'll just use rubbing alcohol and hope for the best...

No idea, i just used a small cotton rag, and had it wet with some Windex, cleaned the badges and surrounding areas, and came out pretty good. the plasti dip didn't stick around, and peeled off perfect. The runover in the front hood was a little tougher, but didn't stick as well. all the areas that were covered by plastidip in full, had no issues with plasti dip sticking to the paint.

I'm expecting the window side trims to be fairly easy because that area doesn't seem to be a porous as the hood area, i guess because that portion is not subject to all the freeway stuff the car frontal area gets hit with, during daily commute.
