Plasti dip

I know lots of people have used this. What do u use for a prep before spraying? No sanding I assume? I want to do my mirrors and maybe the rear quarter window moulding. Then my silver rims to black. Or gun metal.

Gets lots of newspaper or rolled paper and cover everything besides what you want to paint ^ overspray is bad. Do it inside a shop if you can wind is your enemy.

I've plasti dipped my whole Foxbody. Pretty much what everyone has said is spot on. Definitely cover whatever you don't want overspray on. And a wash is all that is required. Do 1-3 light coats, and the last coat do medium. Pretty much the same as any paint from a can senario, but the thicker it is, the easier it is to take off.

Cool. Thanks all! I have some mill paper. Pretty thick. Will be good for masking. I have some body shop skills so that helps.
So two or three light coats then go a bit heavy on the last. I will be doing it inside a shop. Use konk to kill the bugs.

Hey all. Another question. How durable is this. Like will it fade in the sun if I use a clear on my car? Or paint the entire bottom end grey? Does it take road abuse? Orin's this what this was actually meant for. I know nothing on this stuff.

It's pretty tuff. It's not gonna take rocks and not get damaged. Sun should be okay unless you leave it on there for years. I had my dip on for few months no problem just dumbasses messing with it tore it up.

I painted my car over a year ago, and besides the occasional rock that chips the front bumper. It holds up just fine. Just some touch up here and there and it blends I fine.
