Plasti-dip adheres to ANYTHING, so no prep for the surface other than really fine coats at first.another question, how did you prep the surface of the star. Light sanding? Plasti Dip Primer? LMK
Not really. Except that I do go off-road in my GLA, so I do like that I don't have to throw so much mud and other debris and pile up underneath the car.skid plate, is there even a point with it being under the caR?
Thanks! I de-badged the rear, but have not plasti-dipped the rear. Still contemplating that move.The blacked out grill looks great, did you dip the back emblems as well?
I want to black out the grill too, specifically the cross-wings but leave the star chromed so it looks like it is just floating in the middle of the grill.
Sweet! Got to do some searching, looks like your GLA is modded up nicely!I posted some pics of my grill plasti-dipped and the emblem still chrome somewhere on here....
That's a great idea, black chrome or maybe even a black carbon fiber wrap on that chrome strip on the liftgate could look niceSweet! Got to do some searching, looks like your GLA is modded up nicely!
Was also considering getting it wrapped instead since I want to blacked the chrome strip in the trunk door as well. Plasti-dip is probably the cheaper while also being a safe and fun option.
It really was no hassle at all just masking and getting on the ground and spraying. Took about 2 hours, pretty simple really. Just make sure to do a LOT of coats and let them dry for a solid 10 minutes between coats.Awesome, I was actually planning on doing this. JUST got a GLA250 4Matic in night black on Wednesday and was doing some googling.
Question - why didn't you just pop off the skid plate and plastidip it separately? Is it difficult to remove?
