Plasti Dip 14' GT 5.0

So after reading about this. Stuff called plasti dip I went down to Lowes and grabbed some black. I figured for the first time I'd start small. So I did my hood vents. For my first attempt it's not bad at all. But it does have it's mistakes you just have to be a inch or less from the vent to see them. Let me know what you think. I'll upload outside shots tomorrow.

Want to really do them properly? Remove the vents completely and spray them. Take off the hood cover and then there's some screws/tabs. Remove those and the vents should come right out.

The very last picture almost looks like its a pearly blue/black. Like the top (left side in picture) looks blue, and as it goes down the vent (towards the right in picture) it gets blacker. Idk if it looks like that in person but that would be sick!

Looks good. It does make it easier to just remove them. I also did my rims and my 5.0 badges. And the GT emblem too.

It's been on for 3 months now. Still holding strong. Will have to see how it holds up in the AZ heat in the next few months.

I took your advice and removed them. Worked out nice because I just sprayed the under edge and the edge it self with 4 coats and now it looks perfect. I'm gonna let them dry over night then reinstall. I'm gonna do the rims in anthracite and probally a black matte bug bra or least impact edge acents to cut down rock chips.

Yup.... I actually did my heat extractors black and, while they looked good, I wanted to match my charcoal (amr) wheels better so I ordered the gunmetal gray dip. After peeling the black and repainting gray, I ended up peeling that too. It was WAY lighter than the charcoal of the wheels and honestly reminded me of when a car has plastic panels that have faded... I didn't like it at all. Sorry I didn't take any pics... I didn't even put them back on the car before peeling.

So after seeing the finish and durability of 4 coats I decided to put this to not only to a personal flair project but also to employ protection. Now think about what is the dirtiest place on your car thats a painted surface? In the first 1.2k miles I had 6 rock chips between the two. See new attached pictures for in progress dipping. I'm thinking 6 coats.

BTW these were a ***** to get off. 2 pop tabs, 1 star screw, 6 push grip fasteners, then you had to pull out the front the best you could and force the whole thing back to remove it.

Everybody's seems to hold up perfectly fine for at least 4-6 months with around 4 coats on it. Seems like it's worth it for the cost to me.

Rims are probally easiest of all. And a coat of clear or gloss over fully cured plasti will hold for at minimum a year if done right. 12 note cards and a few rag towels. Got first skirt back on car. What a pita. Gonna upload picks tomorrow if the tornados dont get us.

Some outside pics of finished product. I would recommend anyone who attempts to take off the side skirts to save themselves some time and buy a bag of the push clips and slide clips. It will save you a couple hours.

So I finally got my whole plasti dip idea completed. Why do just the skirts when you and have a whole body kit? Pics added. Last pic is of seat covers I picked up at a garage sale never used for 10 bucks!

When you plastidipped the 5.0 badge, did you take the badge off the car or just tape around it? If you taped around the badge, was it hard to get the excess plastidip off of the paint in the crevices around the badge?

Did some more plasti dip work. Pretty much perfected my edging technique with thw dip. My first double stripe attempt looked funny so i let it set and took it off and started over. Went with a single stripe with a 1.5 inch overlap. Once its done with full 4 hr cure ill clean the tape adhesive off around it.

I like the wheels and rocker panels, but not a fan of the fuel door.
