Plastidip emblems

Well I pulled the trigger and finally tried the stuff out. It came out pretty well! I did orange to match the orange sticker I have on my back window for my girlfriends dad. Orange is loud but I'm into it. Click image for larger version

Thanks! Orange on mineral grey is a little "loud" but I'm alright with it. It got too dark to get a picture of the gas cap.

I think it looks awesome!

And for some reason, I thought mineral grey was specific to 99-04s, like my '01. Guess I don't know anything about the paint colors, haha

Much appreciated. I really like how it turned out. Especially since I just washed it and got all the orange dust off that I didn't see yesterday evening.

How does the Plastidip application go, is it like a spray that you tape everything off and apply? Or is it like a paint that you brush on?

Spray makes the most sense to me, but I have no clue

I was paranoid and still masked as good as I could, since I had never used the stuff before. In hindsight I should have just taped a square and peeled the extra off.

Tips for this method.

Heatup the can, it will spray better. Cooldip doesn't atomize for beans, hot will be a nice coverage of fine drops.

Do several light coats. Everywhere there is a gap will make a natural break and you won't have any trouble peeling the background. If you go heavy it will bridge between the emblem and the body. That will make peeling the background without peeling the emblem difficult.

Heat it up with warm water btw. It has the possibility of exploding otherwise

It's extremely flammable and able to explode. I've seen a few garage explosions due to dip. Please be careful.

I think not setting a pressurized can inches from the flame is pretty self explanatory :laugh:

You must have to keep things warm,
