HOW-TO Plasti Dip, show your plasti dipped parts here!

this is my first how-to i believe so bare with me lol...

alright well i found out this stuff in a previous thread and figured i give it a try, and i really like how it turned out and its very simple to do, you can paint your whole car with the stuff and it will peel right off! its pretty durable and ive seen some people that have had it on for years with no problems, and if something does happen... you can easily redo it.

anyway..... off to the how-to. this stuff comes in blue, red, black (looks more like a flat black once dry), clear, white, and yellow.

you can get this stuff at Home Depot, Ace hardware, Do it best, Harbor freight tools, menards, napa, true value, and a couple of other places, i got mine at home depot and it was $5.98 for a can of it and covers 10 feet.

the can looks like this..



whatever you plasti dip is totally up to you, just make sure you clean it first and make sure its dry. also there is no sanding involved! and if you dont like it you can just take it off and redo it with no hassle. from what i have read, it holds through car washes and all that so i dont think you will have problems.

1st step is to mask off the badge you want to paint.. you dont even have to remove the badge to paint it! i love this stuff lol.



leave a square around it, its okay if it gets on the paint around the badge, because it will come right off!

after you have done that, do two passes with the can, lightly spray the badge on one pass and lightly spray it with another pass, and let it sit for 5 mins. it should look like this with two passes.



after 5 mins put a nice coat on the badge. and then wait 15 mins....



after 15 mins put a second coat on and let it sit for 1 hour. or longer if you want. and if you want to do a third coat you can do that to, just make sure you let it dry for an hour or more. once its complete it will look like this...



i forgot to take a picture of me pulling off the stuff on the paint, but i took a pic of the front badge, of me pulling it off around it. this is what it looks like after all the tape is removed on the bumper. notice it is on the paint. but i can pull it off and its perfect cut off all the way around the badge.







now make a notch in with what you think is safe, i just used my nail and was careful not to scratch the paint.





and you're done! very simple and i love it. now on to the next thing... i painted one of my rims that will be used in the winter and compared before and after... when i looked at it after it dried... it blew my mind! i was very impressed! i love the look of it. on to the pictures!








i think it looks amazing hahaha

also maybe this can be sticky'd and everyone can also post pics of there before and after plasti dip projects.

I forgot to ask up there, did you have to take a knife around the badges or did it just peel right and leave just the badge dipped?

I doubt it would look very good on stockers, would probably just make them look even smaller than they are...If I wasnt debadged I would plastidip them though

nope, it all makes an even cut off on the badge when you pull off the extra stuff around the badge and whats on your paint.

notice these three pictures, i just pulled it off with my hand and it cut evenly it self all the way around.





i hope that helped.

Hmm. That's sweet. I didn't know if you had left part out or something. I'm thinking when I do my stock rims I might try putting a red pinstripe around them. Maybe have them looking that much better w/o being perminate.
