Plastidip question

I want to plastidip my whole car or maybe just my rims. I'd like to know far this can would get me? I'm guessing it would be enough for all four rims. & how many cans would I need for the whole car

You would need 2-3 cans just for rims. For the whole car I would say 8-10

www.dipyourcar.com is a good resource.

If you're serious about doing the whole car, using a sprayer would be your best bet. Spraying large panels with the can will most likely yield an uneven coat and you're going to have shiny spots.

Yeah I'm serious, I like my blue but having a cheap change of color for a while would be nice. Are you talking about an air compressed spray gun or the replacement nozzle for the can that makes a wider spray?

And can anyone else chip in? What's worked for you and what should I avoid? I haven't plastidipped before but I would really like to learn & get into it

I wouldn't use aerosol can for the whole car it sucks I did my doors fenders hood and other things and the big things i sprayed left a lot of texture and a lot of streaks I would go with the pro kit on dip your car.com it's really not that much bout the same you would buy in aerosol can IMO

Alright thanks guys, everything helps. Il probably start small like with the wheels but I think it would be awesome to move onto bigger things. Kinda sucks the the 4gallon kit cost so much when the stuff will just peel away after awhile though

Wow that's so little.. Sounds like plastidip is monopolized right now? I couldn't find any other company that sells the stuff to compete against dipmycar.com which would lower the prices :p

I dipped my DD with cans. Used 11 or 12 cans. Looks good from afar, but far from good, would def use a sprayer on your Stang

Did my rims, took almost 3 cans, also hit my scoop and spoiler, and the lower part on the rear.
