ok i just saw your last post.. so you used the trash bags to protect your paint right? not to help with the lines. so i guess do my three layers right away and then tear off the tape asap.

Sorry I wasn't able to help you with this before you dipped the stuff.

When I get time I'm going to do the ls7 rear blackout, bezels, and either hood spears, or leaving the raised part of the hood white and plasti-dipping the rest of the hood. Not sure but I used this on my rims on the last camaro, so I feel comfortable using it for the ls7 blackout. I will deff post pics when its done

Thanks for pointing that out, I guess I should rephrase it. What I mean by "disintegrate over time" is that through driving your car the plasti dip will get hit/scraped/etc and might start to show spots where it has been ripped (is that the right word?). What I was getting at is that you may have to redo your wheels after say a year or so. That's all I was getting at with it.

did my front and rear of the car.
Again, peeling off when dip is wet is the key to a good edge.

Ugh I need to redo my LS7 trunk black out. I didn't lay down a perfect final coat so some parts look like they were stroked by a paint brush with clear coat. Plus when I was washiong my car I slipped and ran the towel too quickly along the edge and part of it peeled a little. Getting the masking tape to line up the upward facing edges around the lights was a pain especially around the curves.

Here's my trunk.


I also did the front bumper.




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.

It's a rubber polymer that is a liquid until it is exposed to air for a long period of time. At which point it becomes a very durable and hard rubber. It can be peeled off without hurting the material underneath. It comes in a spray can and in a dippable can.
