The club, welcome to it!! Lol.

Looks good man. This simple mod REALLY changes the entire look of our cars. Looks much more aggressive with the blacked out grille

Reps for plasti-dip! Chrome be gone!

For the rims HegHemi suggested to me that old playing cards work well shoved between the tire and rim. I cut up a piece of old poster board but next time I'll hunt down a deck with bent/missing cards.

Spraying tire shine on the tires before hand works as well.

Quick question for OP or anyone else that can answer. How durable is plasti-dip? I live in CO where we get some sand mixture on the road as a de-iceing solution. I'm not optimistic this chrome grille I have is going to hold up and I'm looking for a reason to ditch it in place of the black grille, but I don't want to waste money even if it is $30 and my time if plasti-dip isn't or can't hold up over time. It may be a silly or stupid question, but I'm just curious if this stuff (plasti-dip) chips or flakes at all. Trying to weigh which option is better, buy a new black grille that (hopefully) has been tested to withstand rocks and such to a degree, or plasti-dip my current grille and save money. Thanks.

Pretty durable stuff. Has lots of flex and will hold up to below freezing temperatures, car washes etc. Great at protecting rims and grilles. One can will do ya and I think it's about $6 at HD, Lowes, Wallyworld. Doesn't like bug and tar remover, lol, so you can use that to clean up any overspray.
