Arg, Need plasti dip help!

Ok guys, decided to plasti dip some hash marks/ rally stripes on the side of the mustang. I've done it twice now and every time I'm done I let it dry and come back outside to find it all full of bubbles. Is there anyway to get these bubbles out? Am I spraying wrong or something. I cleaned and used alcohol prep to make sure the surface was entirely clean. Please help!

What's the temp outside or where you're working. Make sure the bottle is warm. I know if it's cold out it sprays bubbles. But anyway I've never had these problems and I've dipped a lot of stuff. I have never used rubbing alcohol to clean it off first.

hmm, maybe that's the reason. It's like 30 degrees out here haha. Also now that you mention it where the sun is shining that portion is bubble free. But the parts that's in the shadows away from the sun is all bubbly....... well crap that could be my problem.... all that plastidip wasted!!!!

Yeah I would wait till it's nice out and the sun is evenly dispersed over the spots you dip.

You could also soak the plasti-dip can in warm water to warm up the paint itself too. I've found that it works for me.

Its the weather and humidity ...both can cause bubbling when drying. Keep the temp above 55 on the can if your gonna spray in cold weather. I use a heat gun and warm up the can top to bottom then shake then repeat then spray. Repeat as needed

Cool, thanks for all the help. We have a few days in the 60's with plenty of sunshine this week. I'll try then.

Thats where I do my spraying, my garage is heated. It helps to be able to control the humidity as well. Temp and humidity can have big effects on paint/plasti dip.
