give about 5 mins between coats...and then in a week take a microfiber and some detail spray and rub all the dip down nicely...my rear deck looks smooth as normal paint from doing that

How much time between coats? And also with the rear valance how long between coats because you don't want it to dry on the tape

if you let it dry on tape no biggie...use a razor to cut where the line is...that'll let it pull clean

Bad to put a hair dryer to it to speed up drying process or jus let it dry on it's own

dipyourcar.com recommends 30 between coats. I did it and it turned out marvelous. Even if a coat looks heavy in spots or a little smeared it'll basically fix itself once a half hour passes and you put another coat on it

Did my rear valence about 2 weeks ago, was my first try, came out pretty decent. Later I'm going to go back and fully dip a little higher on it to complete it with a different look.

One more question. It's snowing a little bit here today. Is it true that the plasti dip will hold up in snow, rain, high heats? Ect

Thank you very much, and yes it holds up in all weather! If needed it is a sealant and a sound deadener for your car too(doors, roof, ect.

The rear valance and decklid panel came out awesome with only tiny little micro bubbles but the wing on the top half came out all bubbly ..any suggestion how to fix this? My dad is sanding down very little to get the bubbles out and then were gonna do 1 more coat? Think this will solve that problem

In all honesty just wait between coats and don't try to cover the entire piece in the first coat. I did mine lightly and it wasn't fully covered till the 3rd coat and the 4 was to match it up good.

Just let it set for like 10-15 min between each coat, by the time it dries and is all done its all worth it. Comes Out with a awesome flat surface, that looks like a decal.

Practice with it... When I started to use dip I was hitting everything... Even blasted my trash can to black it out lol

Lmao looks good. My dad is helping me do it, and I think he impatient between coats but I keep telling him to wait. And if it's bubbly now should I jus apply some more coats or peel it off and start over? Bc the backside of the wing came out good and top side all bubbles

It looks great! Awesome flat finish.

And for the wing if it bubbles, leave that bubble coat on for about 30 minutes-40 minutes and then go back and give it a final coat and leave it for a hour to sit before you move it or put it on, will come out great!!!!(try that before you tear off your dip that you worked hard on!!

Post pics when done please!

Any other questions feel free to ask.

It should just rub off with either your finger or a detailing rag
