Plasti dip

Has anyone plasti dipped their car? Does it do anything to the paint? If I plasti dip over stripes will it pull up the stripe when I go to pull off the plasti dip?

Doesn't do any thing to the paint but not sure on the strips that you have. If they're a vinyl type stripe then it might possibly remove them if you were to remove the plastidip one day. But if they are painted onto the car then they won't hurt it.

Plasti dip doesn't really bond hard enough to the paint to pull up vinyl stripes. I've seen cars with stripes and plasti dip on top. No ill affect.

Is plasti dip hard to get a smooth coat with no ripples?

Just make sure you shake it up and are far enough away from the surface you're painting so it doesn't pool up and run. When you paint do small coats at a time so it even and doesn't get bubbly

If you don't have a real spray gun and just try to use a can I think you will have a hell of a time trying to get it smooth. Made that mistake myself before sadly.

Use a spray gun and gallons of it. I did an entire car using cans before. It came out like complete crap.

For a whole car a spray gun and gallons is definitely the way to go if you want a high quality product in the end.

I tried plasti dipping my worn out vinyl stripes. Turned out like crap. Couldn't get crisp lines and had bubbling issues. Finally gave up and had them painted on.

Thanks for all the input. I'll think I'll try doing the spray gun and if that doesn't work I'll go get my stripes painted on.
