Should I use plastidip?

I've heard good things and bad things about plastidip. I'm tempted to go out tomorrow and get a can or two and paint my emblems and see how it looks. Is it even worth it?

I plastidipped my faux gas cap on my 2011 and I think it looks pretty good. The primary benefit of plastidip is that it's relatively cheap and (unlike 'real' spraypaint), it's very easy to just peel off if you don't like it.

Hey listen, I literally just went through this. I had my doubts but...this stuff is amazing.

I actually did my entire roof. Decided I didn't like it and peeled it off, like it never happened.

I did all my marker lights and all my emblems. Stuff worked like a charm.

Use it. You won't be disappointed and if you are..... Peel it off. I promise you've spent $5 on worse ideas.

Use it... I just recently used red plastidip to go with red accents on my GT. I have an album that has all the pictures. Dipped the strut tower brace, engine cover badge, outside badges, hood vents, spoiler and faux gas cap.

I use it all the time. I've done my whole car 4 different times. I do it as side work for kids an people not wanting to buy new rims or want something different. If you have any questions feel free to hit me up

It's an appearance mod so just like anything else it's all personal preference. The important thing to know is it won't hurt anything.

Personally I think when people spray the entire rims with the center cap it looks tacky and cheap but some like it. I did my faux gas cap but left the center emblem stock colors and just plasti dipped the chrome ring and it looks great.

It typically looks better on emblems and side markers than is does on larger surfaces like rims or the roof. That is, unless you get a real spray gun and used a clean room and so forth. I've done my hood vents and emblems and love it. Looks just as good as when I did it 6 months ago.

I used smoke Plastidip on my taillights and now I'm switching up the look some. Isn't peeling off very easy at all? Decklid peeled right off though. Any suggestions for best wait to get off the taillights?

Get some melted cheese and spread it on your tail lights, after that let it dry up which takes about 10 minutes then you get a wet microfiber towel and scraped it off with it. It works perfectly and takes about 15 minutes. Works flawlessly !

They make a spray called dip remover from dipyourcar.com i have used many times and it is amazing but you do need a power washer 1800 atleast to get it clean.

Would use plastidip 10/10. Easy to put on, easy to take off, and it lasts a long time if you do it right
