Bought these for the side of the Supra and want to paint them black. How did the plasti dip hold up? I also have SEM urethane bumper coat paint I could try. Any ideas?

I am impressed with it. I applied it in March and have had no issues. When we dry we do 'pat' around the letters as to wiping just to be safe. Would I do it again, Yep..

Pulling around the outside edges is easy, the inner 'A' of the decal that fits on the trailer was a challenge, used toothpick and wifes finger nail stick.

Bro had mine done all summer, no issues, unless it hit the dock or a bumper was running. I did 2 separate touch up and you can't even tell. I'd be happy to come help you. I would do plasti dip over permanent

Thanks guys! I think I can paint them before I install them. Really want to see a photoshop!

I would put the letters on as is. Then if you don't like it, dip'em. I was amazed how easy it was to do on the boat, specially with larger letters.

^ Second this motion. If you had more black and less bling then I'd probably vote to start with black.

Only thing I've plasti-dipped was my old anchor and sand spike. Neither held up well at all!

What if you dip one, put it on with 2-sided tape, leave the other chromed - put it on with a little 2-sided tape. See which you like better before committing? Can always peel the dip if the chrome is better.

Part of me wants to leave it naked.

Where did you get the decals? Mind sharing cost?

Dusty, I got a great deal on eBay from a guy who bought them from the dealer and then sold his boat prior to installing.
