Worried to plastidip?

I really want to do my rear valence to tie it all together.

I have done a few test sprays, it comes out blotchy? Im just worried about spraying it on my car and it not coming off?

Anyone else worried like this before using on your car? If so did you have a good first try on your car?

If you spray light even coats it wont blotch once it dries...4-5 coats for your valence. I did mine without ever using the stuff before and no spray tests and it came out great. Plus it does come off nicely.

What should I use to tape off? Just tape and newspaper?

And when should I remove the tape when done? About a minute after applied?

How long should I wait between coats? And if I do about 4-5 coats, just pull the tape off after the last spray?

Thanks for the help in advance, MachMan1017

Just tape and newspaper.
Remove tape carefully so you don't pull everything off.
Wait a few min between coats.

i used trash bags to mask off the car....i just tore them open and i covered the back half of the car in i think 4 bags...then taped the lines for the panel...pull the emblem off with some fishing line...cleaned off the area...then sprayed it down with light coats till i was satisfied...then when i went to pull the tape even slowly i noticed it trying to tear the edge..so i took a razor and lightly scored the edge of the dip where it met the tape...then slowly pulled the tape. left a perfectly clean line...it was so easy and the whole process took less then 30 minutes.

You didn't have locator holes in your deck lid where the gt and ford emblem were?

Nice cars too fellas.

A little trick is to spray the edges with another lite coat right before you peel them off. YouTube will make you a pro lol

When you have your wheel off and apply plasti dip to it and after it dries enough to put your wheels/tires back on your car does it come off since you're using your hands to put them back on? I'm confused about that. Cause I'd hate to spend all the time and soon as I put my wheels back on it peels off..

It looks like that when it sprays. But when it dries it's flat. And with a coat or two it will easily peel off.

Does the surface have to be a smooth glossy suface?

It goes on pretty thick so it doesn't really matter I think

Just remember to wipe down the surface with rubbing alcohol using a paper towel. This way you get rid of all dirt.

This hasn't been said yet, and i HOPE it is obvious but i am going to say it anyway... When masking with tape, use something like blue painters tape, or something with not a lot of tack... NO Duct Tape lol

The 99 gt deck lid had holes and squares under the gt and ford logo yeah.

Think 99 and 00 are like this.
