Re: Plasti dip questions????

Is plastic dip that easy? Before buying a new front grill I want to black out the chrome pony. It works for that right?

Yes. Just make sure you mask off the area, because peeling the excess plastic off the grill would be a huge time sink.

Regarding the masking... I had trouble if you let the plasti-dip completely dry, then try to peel the masking tape off.

You almost need to do it within minutes of spraying your last cost... And always pull back and away from the sprayed areas... That will help prevent pulling up the rest of the sprayed areas.

Just make try to cover as much as possible it's really easy to peel off but it's a bit of a pain when it's on the front grill wheres theres lots of little groves ... On ur emblem there's another trim that's right along the horse... I just taped off right around that... post pics alllllso u should hit up ur emblems

I would say make ur coat thicker then ... I never had an issue with the lot cutting clear.... Also where u located ? Humidity and heat could play a factor ? Also make sure it drys well enough
