Looks good with the lip. Did you plasti dip the lip too? Hard to tell in the pic. I'm going to show this to my buddy who has the same color car. I keep trying to convince him to do something with the grill.

I plasti dipped my wheels about a year ago and they have held up really well except where I scratched it torquing wheels.

Have you considered dipping the lip too? Might look good. I think it would bother me if the lip and grill were two different colors of black. Not my car though, just throwing it out there.

The only issue would be that the lip is a flexible plastic and the plasti dip would look like crap within two weeks because of road debris, rocks and any loose gravel that I am lucky enough to find. The dip matches the grille so it looks ok.

Well, I am a firm believer in plasti dip depending on it's application. I have done an "Audi" mask, the area around the license plate, and most recently this STi scoop. I did it while I was waiting on my Grimmspeed WRB paint, which I am on day 3 of working my way to a proper paint job on it. None the less, I wanted everyone to see, especially people unfamiliar with this product, just how user friendly it is and how easy the removal process is. Now, I used 3/4 of a can on the scoop itself so it was thick coats and probably 4-6 coats. I have learned that thicker is better, just do it in layers and have patience. None the less here are the videos. Hope this helps someone!

I've literally been looking at this for ten minutes, trying to figure out if I like the blacked middle section. Can't say I do.

I'm running the same painted lower bumper setup, except mine ends at where the towhook cover line is.

Entire car. Used 3 gallons through the Wagner gun, and will put on at least one more. Its only been on 2 weeks, but its holding up great. No chips in it, and all the bird crap and pollen has washed right off.
