Anything cool you can do with PlastiDip on 2018 Crosstrek XV aside from emblems?

So I found the part number and got it ordered up.

SO MUCH better in my opinion!



And if anyone would like one, this is the part number

I'm considering using plastidipping all of my badges in white and then going over it with their pearlizer to hopefully make them blend with the white car. I'm not a huge fan of black emblems on a white car. Makes them stick out more than the chrome does. We'll see if I get around to it though.

I used to run a business doing plastidip a while back. Looks awesome Caterheflen.
