There are some bends, but I bent them back. The heavy cuts, I figure are gone forever.

      But if I can get the look back to the stock color, that'd be nice. I had some stuff from an Autozone that was supposed to restore black plastic, but it seemed to fade a week after application. I'll give this a shot. Thanks again.
      I'd like to point out it looks a little darker then stock at first but give it a few days, maybe a wash and it should match perfectly.
      Black Plastidip is a little lighter in my experience so if you aren't satisfied try that afterwords...maybe sand a bit off with 1000grit beforehand if you decide to redo it.

      Flexidip is actually hard to get off even if it's been on for years....removing my stripes was not fun and ultimately required chemicals....

      Darker than stock (blacker than black) sounds nice actually.

      This is the damage that needed to be repaired:
      Attachment 113482
      Attachment 113484

      Of it drying...You should see pretty clearly where i stopped spraying:
      Attachment 113486

      And the final result:
      Attachment 113488
      Attachment 113490

      The last time i did this there was absolutely no difference in color using this exact can (hence the rust...), but after a few days it looks like nothing ever happened. I should have sanded this down, but i could not find my sandpaper sheets so i just winged it....

      Note to anyone spraying for the first time: If youre not accurate and/or you decide to create a pattern such as my stripes do NOT use advertisements as cover on white paint - it will bleed through when moist!!!
      I've been thinking about wrapping my splitter and side skirts with adhesive carbon fiber tape. Anyone do this yet? It would match my trunk spoiler.

      I cant say that ive seen anyone do this, but it would look pretty decent as long as it all matches:

      Where things will get really "interesting" is in the rear diffuser if you have it...

      True, I've got the rear diffuser and gave that lots of thought. I'm not sure it can be wrapped in a factory clean look. i'd never try unless i was confident it would look correct and clean.
