Surprisingly impressed with PlastiDip

Did my grille and rear emblem and I seriously had my doubts. Turned out really nice and now the Boss grille isn't so high up on my list. Definitely worth the five bucks and few hours work. Click image for larger version

My rear emblem was done over 2 years ago and still looks great! This stuff is awesome!

Looks great!!! Yeah, I was surprised how well it turned out as well. I did my grille surround, emblem, and wheels a few weeks ago and was very happy with the results. I do plan on getting new wheels and tires down the road but wanted to see if I really like the black rims would look good or not. It's definitely worth a shot to try if anyone is hesitant about it. We will see how well it holds up to the Florida weather though. So far so good!

Thanks guys. How long till it "cures"? I let it sit overnight. I want to take the stickiness off of it with some quick detailer or will that mess it up?

I wouldn't use anything on it yet. The stickiness should go away in time.

To me it seemed like it cured pretty fast. I just let mine sit about 24 hours before driving it and all is still well. It's been like 2-3 weeks since I've washed my car and it's killing me but I'm going prob try it tomorrow. I did buy the brake cleaner for the wheels from dipyourcar.com like they recommend for cleaning. We will see what happens tomorrow. Lol

I love my SR Performance center caps they really add to the look of the plasti dipped wheels!

I think I washed mine within a day or two. Just use a soft sponge or cloth with whatever soap you use to wash your car and wash it gently. Like I stated, my rear emblem was done over two years ago and doesn't have one blemish.

Sounds good to me. Glad to hear after two years the emblem held up. Wonder how long wheels and the front grille will last, they are a little more exposed to the elements. Thanks for the advice!!!

I did my grille about 6 months ago and it still looks as good as the day I painted it. It's held up to countless car washes, street races where dust was being kicked up in front of me (can't win em all lol) and even snow.

Awesome. That's what I like to hear (except the losing part, lol). Hopefully I won't have to worry about any kind of snow here in South Florida anytime soon! Although we might be moving back up north in a few years, in which I better start looking for a winter vehicle soon. Haha

I can tell you this much, if you do your wheels, make sure to put at minimum 3 coats on, preferably 4 if you ever think you might want to get it off later, like maybe when you get some other wheels and want to sell your original wheels.

If you only put one or 2 coats on it is the BIGGEST ROYAL PAIN in the BUTT to get off!!!

Go ahead, ask me how I know...

Getting this stuff off is horrible if not on there pretty darn thick. If it is on fairly thick it comes off fairly easy, otherwise plan on spending forever and a day getting it off.

Do not use any solvent, it will cloud up the clear coat!

Looks good man. I just did my back emblem too but i spray painted the whole thing. I actually love the way your looks so ill do the same thing.


I also plasti dipped my wheels and i have had it for 2 months now. All tires are perfect except my left front tire started to chip. I have no idea why that is the only one that started peeling off. I think i will have to re do it.

You actually don't have to redo it. You can use paint thinner to smooth it back down, then respray a layer over it. There's videos on YouTube that explain thoroughly .

Thinking about blacking out my emblem like yours. It looks really sick and so different.

Do it. It's so easy. Put on about 3 or 4 coats. Make sure to hold the can upside down and clear the nozzle between coats or it may spray out little "hairs". I had to do mine twice because of this. 2nd time turned out perfectly.
