Plasti Dip
 
Would a spray can of Plasti Dip be enough for the two vents in the 2013 hood?

Venomouz831 09-12-2012 11:20 AM

Yea unless you mess up 10 times lol, I've done 2 18 inch rims with a single can and I do 3 coats

McQueen 09-12-2012 11:23 AM

Nope and since it's on the rims it take more of a beating than it would on you're vents. So you will be good as far as longetivity.

McQueen 09-12-2012 11:54 AM

Yea the rims take far more abuse than the vents.

McQueen 09-12-2012 08:33 PM

Ok so i just bought a can of plasti dip in home depot, tomorrow i will post the pic of the job.
I havent seen it on a race red car.

Buy two. One of mine got 'fuzzy' (don't ask, you will know it if you see it), so I decided to remove and re-do. Massive pain in the *** too btw. Anyway, ended up breaking out the second can

Love it. I did 4 layers because I am paranoid. Still plan to get a proper pair job just for piece of mind but they are dealing with 100+ heat and car washes no prob

Is it hard to get the vents out? I have 13' 5.0 and to plasti dip mine.

You just have to remove the hood blanket, loosen the one bolt, and then squeeze the plastic retainers on the sides and front. Be careful, one of mine popped out with the last retainer and if fell to the ground. A little sanding and it was fine.

I am also going to do it to my diffuser, just to see how it would look when painted black. I want to painted it but still get the RTR 3 piece diffuser.

F4m0usfr34k 09-13-2012 09:54 AM

It looks awesome, would it look good in a red car? Because in yours looks better than the stock chrome.

Hachie50 09-13-2012 03:33 PM

I think it depends on your wheels. My car is all black. Black AMR wheels and badges. I just need to do something with my brake calipers and tail lights. I think red cars with black wheels look so good. So if you do polished wheels I wouldn't dip the emblems. Black wheels, then yes

Yea makes sense, i have the stock brembo wheels, maybe down the road i might powder coat them black, i also want to powder coat the brembos in red to match the car.

Hachie50 09-13-2012 03:45 PM

That would look real good.

Redrader26 09-13-2012 09:00 PM
