Did you remove the parts to dip them or mask off everything else? I'd imagine the grille isn't TOO bad to remove but the trim near the DRL's would be taped off?

I just took off the whole bumper, removed the DRLs, and used tape and plastic bags to mask off everything else. If you do it this way, you have to take everything off while its wet or else it'll peel off your dip and waste your time.

No need to remove bumper cover. I blacked out my grill last summer with plast-dip. Just put pieces of cardboard between grill and rad. Masked off perimeter of grill. Spray bombed the trim around DRL gloss black. Just masked off around trim. Finished with clear coat.
In agreement...but someone with OCD might agree when it comes to even the smallest of details. I still want to give AutoDip a go someday. PlatiDip is okay for what it is. You would be doing your Elantra a favor by removing your front plate. ;) The car looks so sleek without them.

Bumper has to come off. Remove from the back side. The big grille isn't easy.

Hi Everyone! This might be a shot in the box but...

I’m new to my Elantra unfortunately it’s not a sport but I wanted to blackout my grill, I need a little help on a starting point. I’m going for a blackout exterior but the interior is silver/pink. Am I crazy?
