Personally wouldn't use plasti-dip, it ends up looking tacky and rubbish, either wrap the parts or paint them

Couldn't you get a few cans and try it yourself, its quite easy to remove if you make a mess.. Just need to using masking/detailing tape to mask off any surrounds, or if you can safely remove the pieces, even better.

Just make sure you put enough layers on. If you spray it too thin, when you come to remove it it breaks off in tiny pieces and takes ages.

A nice think layer (4 coats minimum) will peel off in one easy sheet.

Ahh im just so bad at anything like that, maybe i will just go to a bodyshop but i reckon they will take the p*ss.

Does anyone have a rough idea on how much that lower bumper bit will cost to paint on the back bumper of the 1 series lci? gloss black
