Plasti Dip

Hi,

My GT is all white. I want to replace the louvers, side scoops and the hood vents with black ones or apply the plasti Dip. Anyone's opinion is welcome!

thanks in advance.

did my rims last month did 5 coats and a gloss. took 14 hrs total start to finish with dry time. they look amazing with no over spray. if you have the time do it, best part is if you dislike it they can always peel off.

Plastidip wouldn't hurt to try the look, but IMO plastidip just looks cheap and I'd never put it on my brand-new paint for other than trial purposes.

Wheels are easy to dip on a car, but I'd imagine dipping your louvers and hood vents would be needed to come off the car unless you like overspray.

I plastidipped my hood vents and am pleased with the way they came out. Pulled them off, four coats and re installed them. Easy. Click image for larger version

Rather spend the 14 bucks for the two cans then the 150 for replacement louvers more money for performance

Plastidip exposed to weather eventually starts to look like crap and is uncleanable, because it's rubberised. It also has a tendency to soften or cloud clearcoat underneath it so, be warned.

It's the fact your hand sticks to it while cleaning that makes it hard to keep looking good. On wheels, this is brutal because of the volume of embedded grime.

There is still the clearcoat clouding or softening issue, which is far more concerning long term.

Plasti dipped my rear emblem, grille and side markers. It's cheap and easy to use. It basically smoothes out any inconsistencies on its own when it dries. I've sent it through the car wash including power washing and it's held up just fine.

Placement and the amount of crap it's exposed to matters. I did the wheels to protect them over winter and it looked pretty beat by peel off time, what with all the brake dust, road salt and brake heat. However, the back end emblem I did is staying peachy.
