I'm not sure how this is going to turn out because I have a feeling I suck at this and my first coat might have been too much

That's the awesome thing.. PEEL IT OFF! If you don't like it, peel, and redo just do real light coats

I say you peel it off and try again. I had the same problem the 1st time my lines were not straight and it looks really bad.

The thing is my lines were perfectly straight but I had no way of cutting t when it was bonded to the tape so if I tried to peel it off and cut it, it would peel all of it off

First you have to make sure the tape is straight, next have some one help you don't let the product dry onto the tape so peel it off within 30 seconds or don't do it in the sun

Yea just try like I said it. Take ure time prepping it, tape it good. Then do it in a cool place like garage, do either 1 very thick coat or 2 coats and don't overspray. I have a vid on my phone were we did striped on my v6 I'll post it up so u have an idea how to do it

Wow that looks so nice! How do you manage putting 1 coat on and not over spraying? My first coat I had a bunch of over sprayed spots

I'm with mustangdust. Do one really thick coat instead of a bunch of coats. Doing a bunch of coats is what gives it the weird texture. If you want it to actually look like flat black paint then do one really thick coat. Here's how mine turned out. It feels much nicer to the touch to. It's completely smooth

Re: Plasti dipping my car

i think you went a little over the top with all the tape, just do one line of tape and tuck newspaper into trunk so its easier to peel off and do deck lid in one process and lower valence in second process so you dont have to peel off so much at one time.

I had my dad do my spoiler for me because he's a contractor and good at painting and any stuff like that haha, he did the 4 coats on it and it's so smooth! Not a single mess up spot, he didn't have to use tape though but there's still no over sprayed spots
