what product did you use to do this? ive heard of people using bedliner, and i know they have plasti dip spray, but i dont think ive ever seen a person use the plasti dip on the bumper.

is it textured or smooth? it looks textured in the pics.

Thanks guys for the comments.

Whats up beason, regonize you from TT...Rollin with the MAHouston chapter.

Yeah I was in the same boat as you, never heard of this stuff done on a T or Mada but its pretty awesome. Thanks to rsoto, he threw a couple of pics my way liked the way it looked.

As for the texture...the closer you are the smoother kind of like oem plastic bumpers...further you are you get a textured look, like a smoother version of bedliner(like mine). I really like the texture.

I only did like 4 coats but I think I going to put on more just so I could have a little piece of mind. I had to tear it off already to redo it but second time looks alot better and more durable.
