Plasti dipped my faux gas cap today.

I think it turned out great. It was my first time using this stuff. I did the pony in the grill to. Definitely happy with the end result, especially considering i only spent $6 haha.

I ended up saying screw it and dipped my stock rims today too. Had a ton of paint left and had nothing else to do with my day off haha. They wont go on the car until winter, but atleast now they will look 10x better then stock, and I'll retain my blacked out look lol.

Looks so much better. I thought color wise the stock 2013-2014 wheels are the ugliest wheels I've ever seen. They look good plastidipped!!!

Oh yeah completely changes the look. Pics dont even do it justice. Pics were taken from with my cell phone camera in a dim garage. Dont know if i would ever plasti dip a nice aftermarket rim, but for stockers i would do it all over again without thinking twice now that I've seen it in person. Cant beat the look for the cost.

Very true. Thicker it goes on, the easier removal is.

Are you talking about when you pull the painters tape up, how do you prevent the plasti dip from coming up with it?

---------- Post added at 12:14 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:13 PM ----------

If so, what i did was carefully and slowly run a blade around the perimeter of the tape before i removed it. Being extremely careful not to slip with the blade and nick any paint.

Good stuff! I really like the look, especially since you can still read the Ford lettering on the cap. Great work!

Heres what i did. Probably a little overkill but i didnt want to take any chances. Yes i know plasti dip is "removable" and peels off easily with a thick layer, but little bits of over spray would be a pain to get off. Make sure to clean with soap and water first, thats all all i did to prep the surface. Take your time taping off small corners, etc to make sure you dont have any gaps. Other then that, best tip i can give you is make sure the first coating or two are very light. Then lay it on a little heavier on the 3rd and 4th coats once you have a good base. Dont panic if it looks all messed up after the first coat. It will all pull together and smooth out after it starts building up. Remeber take your time, and wait at least 20 min between coats.

also when pulling the tape pull at a good angle away from the paint and it will cut a nice even line after the cut.

Go to sherwin williams and buy professional painters tape, you won't need a razor blade. Just peel it off when your done spraying.
