Plasti-dip decals
 
So I would like to add some decals to my jeep, nothing too flashy, but also removable.
I saw a few threads with plasti-dipped decals with lizards and gators that looked pretty sick.
So what would be the best way to do this?
I have never used plasti dip on a car before.
I heard the plastidip can get stuck onto the stencil and peel the whole thing off on removal.
Also give me some ideas for what decals I should do and I'll post pictures :).

Edit: could I plasti-dip the head lights or would that cause the bulbs to heat up too much?
I kinda like the angry jeep eyes and don't care about functionality of the headlights (psh, who needs headlights?) plus my aftermarket fog lights are brighter anyway.

I'm alittle out of the loop, is plasti dip the same thing we use to coat tools with for electrical use or something new?

I did my grill a little over a year ago and its holding up pretty good. as for decals you would probably have to spray then remove your stencil right away cause once it dries your right it would pull the whole thing. I don't know about the headlight, but I don't think it would hurt to try. post some pics if you try this.

I did my headlights...
Used nite shades though.
Came out okay... I kinda did a sloppy job XD.
I'm planning on doing the plastidip decal as soon as the rain here stops.
Ill upload pics soon, the ones on mu iphone exceed the max size.

What kind of bumper is that? It looks awesome!

The smithy built xrc M.O.D. Bumper and thanks :).
It's not the cheapest bumper on the market though. I think I spent about 1k on it.
If you get the full end caps it comes with new 65watt lights that kick the stock flood lights' butt :P
