^Wow that's a lot of $$
For the emblems and roof rack it should be easy. From what I have seen just mask off around the emblem, paint, let dry and the extra around the stuff should just peel off and separate around the emblems and roof racks. If the parts are separate the plasti-dip will come apart nicely like u cut it with a razor. It seems to be harder to get a clean edge when there is one surface.
take the headlights apart and do them black too, that's the last detail to make it look like an altitude. it changes the whole front end of the car. we have a deep cherry altitude here on the lot and it looks sexy!
there aren't any replacement parts involved. you just put your headlights in the oven to losen the glue, take them apart, paint them, and put them back together with a strong glue. my father did it to his tacoma and everyone thinks they're factory, including the body shop that worked on his truck after his accident. they were confused as to why they couldn't find speedway blue headlight replacements, only chrome :rotfl:
Picked up a 2012 black sport 5spd last week and am looking to do the grille in gloss black or maybe gunmetal for some mild contrast. Has anyone has tried to sand/prime and paint the grille inserts? I figured the plasti dip would require similar prep as paint to get it to stick to a glossy plastic surface :dunno:
If the grille goes well, may try to do the badging to match. I already did the tint in front and weathertech floormats, but its time to start making my own True North version!
I already plasti dipped the all the chrome on my 2012 limited 4x4. It came out great, again its just the headlights left. I'm wary of the angry wife if I use her oven to bake my headlights. The dealership here can't find a part number for the black bezel headlight assembly.
Hey, sorry to hijack your thread, but I was just wondering if anyone could tell me how to remove my headlights so I can paint the inside housing black? I've tried looking online and I can't seem to find any step by step instructions and from what I can see, it looks like I have to remove my front bumper to get at the headlights? I'm a newb so any help would be really appreciated.
It appears you have to remove the front bumper cover to remove the headlights, when we had the front bumper off to install my winch it looked like there was a bolt under the housing that needed to be removed.
Hi guys I want to share a project that I did over the weekend.
I started by buying these cross bars

I have a 2nd gen 2019 Trailhawk, with no tow package. I need to add a hitch to the back. Has anyone does this before? I'm going to assume it's bolt-on but you have to swap the back fascia first to install it.
My only concern comes down to the wiring. I'm sure I could figure it out with...
Installed gas charged hood struts on my 2019 Compass a few days ago. Was a pretty straight foward install and I took pics to help others do the same. The install is the same on 2017-2020 Compass’.

Does anyone have a diagram or know how the D Applique pillars are removed from the rear? I scratched mine and I looked up the part, seems like it's just one piece that I can pull off and put a new one.
I was looking at it and it seems like I would need to remove some inner paneling to get to...
I'm desperate to get a P0300 code fixed on my wife's 2007, 2.4 compass FWD. The wife was driving home when it went in to limp mode. She made it home and I scanned the following codes P0315, p0456, p0300, p0304 and p0335.
I did some research and found that it was the crankshaft...
