plasti dip

Silly question, but what is the piece of trim called on the back of the 4runner that the lic plate bolts to? I need to paint (maybe plasti-dip)mine, how does it attach to the 4runner, I've seen a few people paint it where it is rather than removing it. Will emblems stick to that surface after using plastidip, or should you put them on prior to painting and paint them then?
How does that stuff wear over time?
thanks

Durability is just dictated by how many coats of Plastidip you use. I used 5 coats on all parts I've done.

They're not very durable really, it you scraped them against something, it will damage the coat. The rear flares on my 4runner, for example, get all jacked from people entering and exiting the back seats.

In the back though, where they're not likely to be touched, you should be fine. Without a coat of clear though, they're likely to stain.

how plausible is it to just paint the flares?

A good primer, paint, and clear should look fine. I would be skeptical to it's durability on the rear flares, again... but what can you do. I did the plasti dip because it's removable.

Painting the flares after they've been plastidipped, that's an idea.
