Plasti dip

What is this and how do you do it and how hard is it?

From what I understand it is paint that is more like a rubber coating. It is very easy to apply and people say it is long lasting if you do about 4 coats. There are tons of videos on YouTube showing how to properly use it. I will be plasti dipping the rims on my 12 GT and my Rubicon as soon as the weather is right. I might even do some stripes on the stang, seen a video on that too.

its cool to get creative with plasti dip. like if u wana paint ur deck lid or wheels and stuff without spending a butt load of cash on real paint. and if u mess up just peal it off easy. doesnt harm ur wheels or paint. im kinda getting tired of using plasti dip though cuz its lookiing to tacky imo

As horseplay said its easy to peel off and won't harm any clear finish. As for what it is....its a rubber coating that will stick to just about anything and easy to peel as long as you do a thick finish (3-4) coats. But yea it becomes very tacky when everything in your car is plasti dipped.

Lasts very long. Since its essentially rubber it handles chips rocks and even salt and pressure wash.

Do 3 coats and 2 of glossifier ... You have to do light coats and 10min in between coats. Also you can put clear paint on it but WARNING it will be harder to peel..

Awesome! I might have to try this. I was looking into getting black rims but this is the way to go for sure.. this might be a silly question but does it at all throw the balance off? and say a rock does come up and chip the paint off do you just spray over it without it looking like it was sprayed over?

Lol no it won't throw the balance its not that heavy lol.. Depending on how deep you can overspray or peel and re-do . And no it doesn't look like paint over paint it actually blends in well
