Plasti Dip

Post by Dominican7 on Mon Jul 29, 2013 9:15 am

I decided to plasti dip my wheels because the lips were peeling.  I also plasti dipped my badges, and my hood until I get it painted to match.  I was able to mount the Mach 1 system too with the help of Trick pony's conversion bracket.














Also bought a strip of LED's to put in the trunk and brighten it up a bit.  I am just starting with the soldering wires to the led strips.  I have the basics but need a helping hand soldering tool.  They seem expensive so I am going to build my own.

Wheels and badges look good, but not feeling the hood

I hear you, I only did that because it was white and wanted to put it on. I am getting it painted to match here in the near future. For now the back will have to do.

Echo the above posts on everything. I have to ask why did you decide to plastic dip your rims? How is the long term reliability with this procedure? I mean you do experience various types of heat on the rims.

I'm seriously thinking of doing my 1997 with plasti dip. I was able to do my bumpers with Duplikote (sp?) last year without a garage. Have read a number of posts elsewhere by people who haven't used a garage for plasti dip. I'm wondering if this is really a doable or not. Painting my bumpers is not as risky as doing my whole car.

Art school does not prepare you for this. Smile

I've recently seen a 2003 stang and his rims have been dipped and the pictures really don't give the real look until you see them in person. I like the idea although I'd have a few reservations about long term reliability and or fades.

I read somewhere today that the neon colors fade but the "regular" colors are pretty good. This whole idea came from seeing a can of the "blaze" at Pepboys and thinking, ohh...I can do my wheel centers to match the pink stripes not realizing the paint would come out of the can NEON. Duh...going to return the can when I get my oil changed on Wednesday but the clerk said, "I've heard of people doing their entire car with this." So, I went looking around the Internet this morning and saw there WERE people doing their entire car. That idea got bigger when I saw that I could do my own color and that went further to "Can I match those two bottles of nail polish?" One is a spring green pearl and the other is a coral pearl. I guess it's a girly thing but I'm going to do it. Smile Now for a couple of guy-types who are willing to help? LOL Putting on the vinyl stripes and doing the bumpers was one thing. My whole car? That's another. BUT it does peel off. One body part at a time. That makes this sound less frightening.

Back to Plasti Dip...So, if I want two custom colors? Do I mix them from the stock white and add to it to make the colors I want using the color kit?

Hey Kate, Hijacking is kind of way of life around here, it happens all the time, some forums forbid it, we encourage it

So, back to colors. Is there a way to do custom colors similar to walking into Home Depot with a color sample?

Wishing I could just Photoshop my car... But where are my priorities? I just found out I have a leak in my right rear wheel bearing (is that what this is called?) and my so-called mechanic isn't returning my calls.

No issues so far with it.

I like the fact that I can peel it off and re-apply or pick another color with no issues.,  I have seen videos of people removing plastidip a year after application with no problems.

Dipyourcar.com is the place to go or you can try the plastidip web site too.  they have many colors and I have used this stuff everywhere.

I thought about your question regarding the paint store idear and I think it is very possible as it is just mixing right?  
I think if you got in touch with a body shop they'd know something.  There is some pretty smart folks here who might be able to steer you right.
