I have older pics, but the car was driven into a garage with my bikes on top by a shop doing work so it basically needs to completely repainted. It will be matte black when it is finished. It is also being lowered Thursday.

Maybe it is me or the picture but I don't see what you did? Are you talking the lettering along the sides?

All the black down the sides of the whole center portion of the dash and gear shifter. It is usually all silver so I broke it up with the black.

Are those black vinyl strips along the edge of the plastidip? Do the decals have any problems sticking to the dip?

Yep they are, I had a hard time making a clean edge with the painters tape so I used pinstriping tape to give it a cleaner edge. The decals had no problem sticking to the dip.
