What is Plastidip ?

I see a lot f people on here who Plastidip parts of there car and was wondering what exactly it is or does? Probably a stupid question but I like the way I looks and was wondering if its permanent or if its easy to undo if I don't like the look of it and how I would do certain parts?

What I did was roll up a bunch of blue painters tape and stuck it In between the rim and rotor/caliper, do that all around the rim, make sure it's extra clean btw

Take off your wheels, makes it so much easier. then put index cards between the wheel and the tire so you don't get overspray on the tires.

I only take off the wheels because I don't want it to drip. And it doesn't matter If you get the dip on the tire it peels off super easy

I'm going to get the white and plasti dip parts of the good and possibly do the roof like a reverse black on white. I think it'll look unique.

best part is if you hate it just pull it off...now when you do your hood and roof remember the larger the area the more blotchy it'll look unless you do a decent amount of layers in nice even coats

Remember to spray about 6-8 inches away... Spray too close and it runs, spray too far and you get texture.

The plan is to do mine this week/weekend, but that depends on time and finances (just got hit with a hefty work schedule and a hefty set of bills) but if all goes according to plan, I'll post pics of me doing it, being done it, and then loving it.

Note: the final picture set may be R-rated.

I like that you did with the raised parts on the hood leading towards the scoop. I might do that to mine but red (my stang is black)
