Plasti Dip can be a b¡tch to use sometimes, at least it looks like you didn't get any streaks or runs

You gotta pull the tape off when it's still wet! And use more then one strip of tape on each side. Now get back on the horse and **** it up! **** it up!

1. Peel tape when wet
2. use multiple pieces of tape, and mask off everything else to prevent overspray.
3. Practice, practice, practice.

You will soon learn the ways of the plasti ... Peel away and Focus!!! now "Again!!!" J/k it's so easy to peel off and try again but overspray can be a b!tch if it doesn't layer

Practice makes perfect... Just keep at it. You will go through quite a few cans before you finally get it down.

Best way to remove over spray is with a dry towel!

I feel bad about spray canning my car for anything. The only time I use plasti dip is to see how something will look before I paint it than it comes off. But the stuff is pretty amazing. And I can't really find any justification not to use it other than personal preffrences.

Like anything if you take your time and do it right you will get good results.

Looks like you put to many coats without letting the others dry wait about 15-20 mins in between coats and put light coats not heavy

Did mine 2 days ago.. I didn't peel it when wet tho I had to carefully use a razor blade as I was pulling up the tape, came out pretty damn good tho, I have horrible paint chips under the dip from someone sitting in my hood, you can still see the chips up close but not from more than a few feet away..I'm gonna have my hood re painted in the beginning of summer and gonna have them actually paintit black under the scoop I think

There is a green painters tape that is supposed to be better for painting lines, Frog Tape.

I failed multiple times myself lol. I treated it like real spray paint and kept getting little bits of overspray all over that were a PITA to get off. I then realized to just spray a square around whatever I was trying to do and peel it where I want and it worked much better

I also failed big time trying to paint my tails to look more like the 13+ that I saw a few 2005-2009 guys doing that looked kind of cool. First the lines were jagged as hell from peeling the tape and then when I turned on the lights I realized I needed about 2 more coats at least to make it not transparent. HUGE waste of a night lol

The plasti dip is coming out chunky and not like paint at all? It's not working very well for me. And I'm shaking the can very vigorously for a solid minute, not sure what's going on...

Whats the temp? You usually want to spray it at 70 degrees or warmer, too cold and it will come out just like you are saying. You may even want to submerge the can (not completely) in a thing of warm water to give it a good internal temperature.

Plus that's where I'm having difficulties getting the paint in there because i try getting in the crevices but it having a "spray" nozzle it goes there and around the area so it gets thick surrounding the area.

I've done two rims, and from a far they look not bad and you probably won't notice unless you observe but just need some tips possibly for my next two rims or next time I plasti dip something.

You just gotta work with the angles, my wheels were tricky to do because of all the curves, I didn't want to spray too heavily in one spot and too thin in another.
