Plasti dip mods

Has anyone attempted to tape off and plasti dip their decklid? I was thinking about trying it, curious if anyone else has....

I did it to my old 2012 race red 3.7 and it came out great. I never had to touch it up either.

I'd never heard of it until coming onto these forums. It's a plastic based spray paint that you can spray on parts of your vehicle. I've seen rims, tail lights, chrome accents, etc plasti dipped. And if you don't like it, it peels right off. YouTube it. There's lots of videos of people showing you how. I watched one on blacking out taillights. The finished product looks like matte black paint.

Look up Dipyourcar.com on YouTube. This guy is the plasti-dip master.

Basically it's a spray paint that you can peel off eventually. It's like a rubberized coating. Extremely easy to work with, and if you don't like it you can peel it off.

I have my rims and my grille plasti dipped black. Here are some pics.

Everything black you see here is pretty much plastidip. Yes even that black GT is plastidipped. Great product if you use it correctly

It's all about how far you spray your target. You ideally want to be about 6" away.

The further away the more textured it becomes.

Actually, the closer the more potential for getting drips because it gets kind of splashy.

6" is the zone you want.

Looks really good.

Out of curiosity, what did you spend on glossifier? I've been trying to find a good deal on it.

It gives the dip a sheen. Kind of like clear coat, but for plastidip.
