Its pretty straight forward. I've had the best results by doing a few quick coats, then removing the tape before the dip has a chance to set. Cleanist lines that way and the dip won't stick to the tape.

I gave about 30 seconds between each medium coat (3 coats) and pulled the tape off right after the last coat. I've done it several times and this gave me the best results.

I'm sure there's a thread for every question on here. He wanted to make a thread askin and it got the job done.. Besides a 2 yr old threa might mislead. 2 years later ppl may not feel the same about the product. Was an example

There are no 2yr old threads about plastidip on this site........there are however threads started every other day about plastidip. It would be way faster to search for plastidip threads than to start a new one and wait for answers.

Was a example. Can't we post threads at will? I'm not 100% on the rules but can't he make a plasti dip thread if he wants?

Yes he can but it is better to search and find the answers you need rather than start ANOTHER thread about plastidip......especially since they pop up almost everyday. My advice to anyone,and I do this myself,is to search for the answer first. It's a whole lot faster than waiting for someone to respond to a thread.

It's almost as bad as the "What's the best exhaust" threads. If you search for those you can find a ton of answers and sound clips without having to post another worthless thread.
