Just did the Plasti Dip hood cowl accents!

And i think it came out rather awesome. I like it more then i thought i would. It took me 2 attempts but i think it came out good. The 1st time my spray can started splattering randomly and really ****ed it up.

2nd time around i used electrical tape and it got the curves a lot better. It was pretty hard to get even. If i do end up redoing it i might spend the money on some good tape for masking curves, but i know its pricey. Also might try adding a little pin striping to make it look a little better.

1st attempt

2nd

How did you prevent the plasti dip from sticking to the tape? I did mine a month ago and the edges look like total crap and I hope to redo it.Click image for larger version

The only reason I haven't taken them off yet is because they look decent from far away, up close they can be easily seen peeling off.

You have to peel the tape off when the last coat is still wet. So it doesn't bond with it.

I believe the tape got stuck on the first 2 coats because I took off the tape right when I did the last coat and it was stuck to it.

Kind of what he said. BUT do it all in one coat. Even if you do it in layers there is still a chance it will **** up. so..

Tape it off. Spray one massive coat, evenly and quickly, and then pull the tape immediately. I did one side at a time.

When I plastidipped my trunk area between the tail lights I found using a heat gun from about a foot back made the dip and tape come apart perfect, even with a lot of overspray. Start pulling the tape up so there is pressure along the point the tape and dip meets, point the heat gun and pull the tape slowly and you'll have a perfect separation.

Excellent. Much nicer than the dust collecting piano black.

Thanks man! I thought so as well, and matches the lower valence better. And doesn't stick out like the magnetic ones do.

Agreed, I have a glossy one that I'm making matte as well. Going with matte for the roof so that it matches the front and rear bumper trims. Going to colour match my rockers.
