Black plasti dip restore first spray shine!

I sprayed my beauty rings with black platsti dip. After a while it seemed to get dull looking to me. I have used meguiars high gloss hot shine on my tires for years now to give them a rich black look to my tires.

I thought to myself today when I washing my car; tires are rubber and plasti dip is rubber spray. So i said why not and applied it to my rings and bowties and they look like I just sprayed them with fresh plasti dip.
Here's some pics sorry I don't have a before pic but I applied it to my previously grey looking tires and dull rings and it looks like this now.

Used it before didn't think it was that special.

The whole point to my post was to point out you can use tire shine on plasti dip to restore the dull look not compare brands. I deal enough with that nonsense selling generic and brand name drugs to pharmacy's.

I wasn't trying to slam your product of choice, I used it in the past as well and after using SVRT I'll never go back. I just used SVRT on my trim rings as well and was very happy with the results. What I don't like about the spray stuff is that it slings like crazy. If you don't mind it getting all over your paint then I guess it's not a big deal.

You don't spray it on the car.. There are foam applicators that you spray it on to and then apply with that. You would have to be a retard to get that grease all over your paint with over spray.

Easy turbo.
He's talking about it slinging while you drive. Lot's of products like that fly all over the paint while the car is in motion.

actually what's he's saying is an applicator puts on a much thinner but effective layer that does not sling, whereas spraying slings, it as it's excess....

I was responding to the fact that he said you would "have to be a retard to overspray on the paint". He was talking about sling not overspray.

Anyways. Who cares.

OP glad you found something to clean your plastidip.

Obzen thanks for trying to clarify for me, I didn't think it would solicit this kind of response much appreciated. I apologize to the OP for making a product suggestion when he obviously wasn't looking for one.

Thank you! never had slinging issues with that stuff. I'm sure if you put a ton of the stuff on your tires then immediately drive it might go on your paint.

Lots of these don't dry. That's how they keep the "wet" look. Glad you found one you like.
