kevinfranklin replied to NEVER AGAIN A GM's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI will add that mine is noticeably better after the tranny warms up..... so be cognizant of that and see if that's part of the equation.

I'm looking to get the black 3M covers for my chrome handles, so does anyone have positive or negative reviews if you've had them a few years? There are several vendors on eBay, and I can't seem to tell the difference between any of them, so I was going to just go with the cheapest unless someone has guidance otherwise.
kevinfranklin replied to MikeMartino's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraSo I'm wondering if anyone's had issues using painter's tape (when masking off for buffing, etc) on Plasti-dipped parts. I definitely will want to mask off things like my door trim when I buff every couple years. IOW, can good painter's tape (3M) pull the Plasti-dip off?
I get some privacy error when pinging those previous links....... and I can't find a "GmPartsGuru" website. So what are a couple favorite options for GM parts that folks use frequently?
kevinfranklin replied to Shredzy's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraSo none of these pictured so far appear to be the latest matte black Aeroskin II I saw in a local shop that has an "extra" ramp-ridge across the front..........that supposedly helps to push bugs/rocks/crap up just a little bit more to avoid the windshield. Anyone have one of those and like it or hate it?
Carl, you and I have PM'd back and forth a couple weeks ago, and I'm still interested......... but was wondering if you ever filmed a video of the actual gauge face swapping process. I just want to make 100% sure I'm comfortable with tearing into it before ordering. BTW, did you post pic's of the carbon fiber gauges installed? That's the style I was leaning towards. thanks!
So did you put anything (PD glossifier, clearcoat) over the Plasti Dip after you were done with the color? I finally got to working on my emblems and didn't add anything as a final coat. Now it seems like if I rub the wrong cloth over them, they might get fuzz stuck in the dip, but they're still just a few days old, so maybe they'll continue to harden?
Looks like you took the whole assy out, so was that difficult? And I think what you're saying is you removed screws (2 of them?), and added in a washer in-line, between the 2 black sections.....is that right?
So, whoever has added vinyl to their plastic trim pieces, any suggestions/hints as to how to make good, wrinkle-free corners? I used heat, and had to experiment around to try and figure out when to use heat, where to use it, etc. If I used too much, the vinyl would get flimsy and wrinkle. If it was too cold, I couldn't "work it" enough to work out the wrinkles. Any and all suggestions are welcomed!
So what's been your experience with the Plasti Dip on the front tie? Does it clean off ok, or have nicks/cuts in it from road debris that will require a re-apply? Same question for the side trim, although I bet that lasts a lot better, due to it's location.........
