Plasti Dip

Where do you guys usually get your PlastiDip?

I went to 5 different places (3 car parts places) and Home Depot and Lowes.
Only Home Depot and Lowes carried it but they only had black, and like 2 of those

Was just looking at the site and it looks like its not white, but gloss.
Is that right?
Lowes did have the "white" now that I think about it

Well dip your car has ever color and plasti dip is always flat unless you get the gloss for the plasti on the site. But it will always be flat/matte colors

It's not gloss. I used it on my mirrors. It's matte white.

I'd say 2-3 cans total should be enough! If you've never used plasti dip I would suggest YouTubing dipyourcar.com videos & watch then it's really easy

I plasti-dip my bumpers and wheel wells on my truck. Easy not hard at all. Make sure if you are doing your rims to remove the wheels or cut up some trash bags to cover your brakes and rotors. I also recommend buying the spray gun handle for 6 dollars to help your spray control.

Wal-mart has plasti dip too. last time I checked it was with the paint spray cans and they had white, black, and the glossifier. If you do plasti dip your wheels i recommend either removing the wheels or leave the wheels on and cover everything you do not want to get plasti dip on.

I figured I would remove the wheels.
Only problem is I have to do 1 at a time as I can only remove one wheel at a time...

Somewhat related... Do those "professional" jacks (the ones that are like long rectangles and a hydraulic 'pump') (hope you know what I mean) Do those let you rise the entire car or still just one area at a time, just easier then the crank shaft?

Put the jack in the middle side of the car (check for your gas lines) and put a Board on the jack and lift. Then you can do two at the same time.

I YouTube'd it and it looked pretty straight forward. Anyone ever plastidipped their whole ride? How long does it last before you have to peel it off and re-do it? I wanna do my whole pony in matte black. Anyone have any input/advice?

Have you done any of your car with it?

I have never seen it up close, in-person, to know what the visual quality is really like.
That is my worry with even doing my wheels.
I am worried it will look cheap.
I don't want to look like some ricer in a nasty looking Civic.

Think I will use my wife's car as a test subject tonight and see how it looks (on just the car body)

That's my problem man, the kit for a pony is 355 bucks. Don't wanna waste the money. I want to just do the 3M wrap and say **** it, do it right, but it's so expensive... I really want an affordable matte black. I've seen a Bentley and pony GT in 3M and its super sick... Let me know how it looks and what you did.

Hmm... I am glad he likes it.

Personally I think it looks kind of cheap.
I wonder how it would look if he did the gloss on top.
I think the matte is what is throwing it off for me.

Again, these are my personal feelings, and nothing against anyone else.
If the person likes it, AWESOME!
That is all that matters!

I like plasti dip, but I don't think I would use it on my whole car. I plastidipped my spoiler and rear valance, but it's just temporary until I decide if I want to buy the rtr spoiler and Roush valance. I just thought I'd get used to plastidipping the spoiler and rear valance to see if I would like the look and so far I do.

Only things I will say about plasti dip is treat it as if it is spray paint. Don't do it on a cold day, and don't do it on a 100 degree day. Try and do it on a day where it is from at least 55 to 70 degrees outside with a little bit of humidity. Also don't do it on a windy day, if you do be sure to cover everything you do not want to plasti dip.

Plasti dip is fun to mess around with to give your car a different look, and can peel right off without any damage if you decide you don't like it.

It will hold up better and be able to take more of a beating than your paint. Say good bye to rock chips on the hood and front bumper.
