Re: plastic dip wheels

I never even knew putting them on inside was an option till seeing posts on this forum. My Maxima doesn't have them on outside, but all of our American cars have always been on outside.

Re: plastic dip wheels

Did you scuff them up or prime before painting?

Re: plastic dip wheels

I just cleaned them off very well, I had seen several other posts in various places saying no need to scuff up. Did 3 coats, and looks very good and uniform, was cheap and easy project, this stuff is pretty cool, was thinking about trying it out to make black out panel in back...

Re: plastic dip wheels

It'll be interesting to see how it holds up over time and how it holds up to brake dust. Looks good right now!

He just painted the whole thing. Then he got a tiny flathead screwdriver and put the edge between the chrome and the inside and split the plastic on the inside. Carefully peel off the inside, make sure part of the outside doesn't come off with it.

Ok so I'm new to this plastic dip and I've first heard about it on here and was wondering could I use it on my interior? Like the plastic pieces and also I sounds like it's removable so How do you do that? Lol

Clear..ok. I was afraid if I did that then it would peel it all off...my husband said he tried that and it peeled the black fact paint in the center off too. :/ I'll have to buy another emblem and maybe try again

It will work. But it doesn't come in a variety of colors like regular spray paint. If you wanting to use black you're set! Yes it's removable. It peels right off but with stands a lot. I have the plastic dip on my wheels, GT emblems, trunk emblem, and gas door lid! All have held up very very well!!

Just spilt the paint with something sharp like in the pic. No prying involved lol. Go around the whole emblem and be very careful not to peel anything you want on

Re: plastic dip wheels

could you do like racing stripes with this stuff or would that not look good? i mean it must be like the stick on racing stripes but just in liquid form?
