Do your side emblems still light up?

Yeah, you can spray over the glass part thing and then peel it right off. Which the Z emblem will still stay on and the outer rim as well. Hope that helps.

Hi all,

Just got a 370z and want to plasti dip the fangs but also looking to add a 3m clear bra on the front bumper. I am wondering which one goes on first? My guess is plasti dip first but the tint shop says I need to wait at least 4weeks for the plasti dip to fully dry. It seems important to wrap the bumper ASAP if I want to protect paint.

Suggestions?

I would clear bra first that way if you want someday to get rid of fangs you can just peel it off.

You should clear bra the front bumper first.

Then once the clear dry has settled and dried completely to the car (1-2Days in the sun)

Then you can spray plasti-dip over the top

Tint shop doesnt know what they are talking about. Plasti-dip fully dries in about 20 minutes in the sun.

Interested to see how you taped this off. How'd you remove tap without peeling the dip?
