I did all the wheels, and all the badges except for the front back and center "Nissan"'s. I'm probably gonna do those tomorrow. Really love the way it turned out, made the truck instantly look twice as mean. Has anyone seen this color shift pearls? Insane. I probably wouldn't do it to a truck, but they look pretty sick on sports cars. Anyway, what do you guys think? I also installed a backup camera while I was at it. Next stop, Super 44 next weekend.

Looks good! I'm thinking about dipping my wheels eventually.. I sorta want them glossy black.. I also want the emblem and bolts to remain chrome and not sure how much work that will be.. :)

I was surprised by how easy it was. I just rippled some trash bags so they were just long pieces of plastic and put them behind the wheels to cover the brakes up. Did about 7 light layers. The key is to do really thin layers and take your time. I'd let them dry about ten minutes between coats. It was really hot out so they dried quickly. I was amazed at how easy the excess over spray came off. I didn't even have to cover the tires up with anything. It just peeled right up and I wiped the rest off with a rag. The badges were super easy too. It stayed on the badges when I peeled the excess around it up. I'd say I spent about 3 hours all together, but I really took my time.


If you have any questions about it, I'll be happy to answer! Now I'm just debating if I'm gonna drill a hole through my floor to run a video cord for my backup camera. The reception on the wireless thing I bought is terrible.

Nice dipping , I might look into doing my emblems and two mirrors too. I cant stand all of the chrome..

BTW>>>>Don't drill the hole for back up camera, look under the rear passenger seat for the rubber grommet underneath the trucks flooring and carpet. .

You can snake the wire through it, much easier install.

Thanks for the tip! I'd definitely prefer not to drill holes through my truck if possible. I'll be installing the new muffler tomorrow and while i have access to a lift i'll run the video cord. I'll post a video of the before and after.

I've done quite a bit to the exterior of the Titan. I've only had it 3 weeks and it looks like a completely different truck. I've installed a Super 44 exhaust, that's pretty much it for performance. I'll post a stock picture, and then some since then. I installed a dash cam, a fuzz buster, and LEDs in the foot wells. They look awesome. Lots of before and after pics below. I also tinted the rear lamps, that came out great. I'm going to do green/blue chameleon tint on the headlights, it's gonna be pretty much the only "color" on the outside when I'm done. I am going to have a friend print custom vinyls to replace the "PRO 4X" stickers with matte black ones. One side will say "BATTLE TRUCK" and the other will say "PRO 4X". Check out the pics, and tell me what you guys think! Oh yeah, I also got my front windows tinted to 35 percent today. That's as dark as you can get in NC.
