I plan to plasti-dip my spoiler, roof and do the lower part of the diffuser between the bezels. Once I get my race ramps I'll do my rims.

The first time I did my rims, I was very meticulous and did several light coats. It came out really rough. This last time I had to redo one rim since I had a tire repair done, and the edges of the plastidip peeled up a bit. I started by peeling off the old plastidip. Then I just taped off the tire and just started coating. I didn't bother with letting it dry between coats, I just kept going until the rim was completely covered. The finish turned out MUCH smoother.

I anticipate having to do some touchup on my rims after getting an alignment this morning. I'll just clean them and do a complete recoat on all.

I love this stuff.

Been thinking about this, and might do my hood and trunk... over the stripes. Might take a few cans, but it's gonna have to wait until the hurricane comes and goes. I'll keep ya posted.

@tankmorph, so are you saying or considering that i wouldn't need to wait for it to dry to add another coat, just keep going?

That's just my experience. The time I let it fully dry between coats, it came out progressively thicker and rougher. The one time I just continuously sprayed a thin layer around until it was covered...much better!

Try a test piece. Like spray an old cookie sheet or something to test different techniques. You can just peel it off when you're done and it's dry.

I tape off and spray, wait a second and spray more, then wait and spray more then pull tape off. all in about 3-5 min.


gills and hood stripes are decals (ordered before I knew about plastidip)
rims are painted (done before I knew about plastidip)

every thing else is plastidip

I noticed that it left behind residue when I took mine of, it was rather hard to scrub down.

Hmm really? What did you plasti-dip? I've never had that happen before personally.

My plastidip project:






Thinking about doing the fake little vents on my hood to make them look more realistic.

Just tape off the fender and door. Then any over spray you can peel off.
