OK...not perfect...still learning this Dip stuff, but for now good enough; so much better without the chrome that matched nothing else on the car. Really needs a bath but that will have to wait a week until the Dip sets up.

Super clean hatch, how was the plastidipped rear "diffuser" / cover been? What made you do it, still holding up? Mines been getting faded pretty bad between washes, even with plastics restorer. Not a bad idea to plastidip it.

Also did you cut down the rally armor flaps? Most of them installed look too big inline with the wheels, but you got them perfect.

The dip is only a couple of weeks old on the rear valance & the wing. So, far so good. I went with dip because I wanted to try something different and if I don't like it...peel and redo. No discoloration on the dip....that's the main reason I dipped the valance was how crappy that piece looked all the time. I may end up doing a color match one day on the wing, but I don't take the world that seriously. The flaps are stock shape. I just put them where it looked good to me. I won't be running much wider tires (205 max width; 185 now) and will stick with 15-inch wheels, so I didn't need them to stick out too wide.

Update on the dipped parts. All seems good after a suds & spray down at the high pressure car wash.

Next, but a ways off, an RMM and wider 15-inch wheels/tires.
