Very easy! For the grille inserts put your fingers into it and give it a good tug and they will pop right out and it just spray away and with the trim there are 2 screws one on each end and after those are unscrewed its just a quick tug for the clips to come undone. Took probably 2 minutes to take parts off and maybe an hour for the spray just because I added 4 coats.

Looks good! Nice and subtle.

I'll probably bust out my Plasti Dip soon and try something.

Did you spray the trim of the grills or the whole thing? I've heard horror stories about the mesh part once the dip starts fading.

It's really easy to take off the car if you put 4 or more heavy coats the lighter the coat the harder it is to get off because its so thin
And I sprayed the mesh along with the trim and no there is no fade at all so far.

Couple questions for ya:
Where did you paint the hood? I was worried about dust contamination.

Does it wash well? I was wondering about wax, etc.

The Bathurst stripes I painted onto the driver side part of the hood.
And it washes good even under high pressure no dirt or dust stays onto it and is not attracted to it much either.
I have not tried waxing the car with it on but I'm sure it would not make a difference.

Looks great sir. I've been thinking lately about trying me luck on both the door and window trim. Will get around to doing it eventually.

Thanks, I was wondering about getting dust in the paint during application.

Looks good. I've did my hood scoops a long time ago and now want to do my spoiler too. How did you tape off the rear trunk when you painted it? I'm worried about over spray.

In my experience with Plasti-Dip over spray isn't a big deal. I just rubbed my hand over the painted surface and it PD particles just kind of rolled off.

I had my scoops done right before I did this too it gives it a good look. I taped the edges of the spoiler and cover the rest with a newspaper or you could just tape it all the way. And overspray has not been a problem for me you can get some good off and wipe it right off leaving it shining and smooth.
