Did this about a month ago and still in perfect condition.

Plastidip my borla tips, it looks really good, it gives it a stealth look and no one expects it to be loud, no signs of pealing or nothing as the dip is heat resistant.

Plastidip the rear quarter windows but ended up pealing it off because it was a huge blind spot for me (dont know how people with louvers drive lol) but it looked really good

also did the rear side markers just for fun, and turned out good, u can still see the light

i think this is a nice touch for people that are going for the black out look.

Let me know what you guys think.

I was going to buy fireproof paint to paint my exhaust black but I never really thought about plasti dipping it.. That's a good idea, I think the max temperature the plastidip can handle is 315 degrees and I dont think the tips get that hot, but since I never touched it I wouldnt know.

I might even do that for the rear side markers. I dont really see a need for them anyway. But I would still like the light to shine through just in case. Can you post a picture of the rear side markers lit with the plasti dip on it?

Looks very nice, I like it! :D

Lol it was a cool try. At least you learned something. I like the exhaust, prob works for your theme. I dunno about the rear window though LOL, and I agree I could never get louvers. I need my visibility ..all of it

I did mine like 2 months ago, still loving it. Though i just took them off the car and sprayed it in my garage rather than masking off the car.

I might do this to my mufflers...I painted them with some black exhaust paint but it scuffs real easy. Looks good!!

I'm not saying it was aliens...but it was aliens.

A few things OK, but the windows, no no. I see you took it off though. Good call.

the murdered out thing is overkill, but if that what u like, im not going to stop u. i would have used black header paint instead of plastidip on the tips thou

As you can see everyone has different tastes. For me, I'm a little old school and don't like the bat mobile or knight rider look. A little tasteful bling is my preference. And part of that is the polished Borla tips.

I love my polished tips but I might do this to protect them from the salt this winter then just peel it off in the spring :bigthumbsup

Where did you tape off when you plasti dipped the exhaust? How did you spray the top? I'm gonna do this tomorrow

murdering a car out is so overplayed, it doesnt look bad but I just couldn't do it to my own car! It makes you happy so that's all that matters :)
