Before I say anything, i must say that my truck is sitting in the driveway not being driven. So i dont know how this tip will hold up to dirt, or if it will make dirt stick. Now to the tip. The stainless trim on my truck looks really faded, so I did a quick spray of WD-40 on it, and it is *bling* the plastic silver side molding also got sprayed and then wiped off. It is also *bling*. I did the tailgate 4 weeks ago and it still looks good, i just did the rest today. Ill be able to see how it holds up tonite, i sprayed my dads f350 tailgate (ick lol) 2 weeks ago and ill try to remember to look tonite. But it looks really good. Try to keep excess off the paint or you will have to wash it and start over. Remember the brushed aluminum gets sprayed and left alone, the plastic gets sprayed and wiped. Anyways, just a quick tip. If someone tries it and all the dust in the world sticks to it, post up.
