I dipped my entire s2000 last year (will do it again this year in a crazy color) and have the grill on my Jeep dipped as well. Windows you just tape off with blue tape/newspaper/circulars, wheels are easy...just slice a garbage bag, and drape it over the wheels.
What if i wanted to create an "urban camo" type look with it? How should i tape those shapes up? Blue tape?
