i dipped my trep.

i plastidipped my intrepid.. the color was supose to be flourescent red.. its more like pink people told me because i didnt do enough coats and the car was silver. so its like pink. i used a air compressor spray gun and i think you are supose to use a electric spray gun instead the electric guns give more even and also a bigger area of spray.. im going to try again this summer with blue.

Awesome. I plastidipped my rims this winter to protect from salt. If you don't like it peel it off and repeat! It won't even take you that long to take it off when you do.

I dipped my rims and my hood, using black... with that silver base, before the summer coat, may want to investigate the primer they offer now. Should help keep the colors true.

are you sure it comes off easy. i had to use a micro fiber towel to rub it off my head lights it wouldnt come off in big pieces.

next time i am doing flourescent blue. i didnt know they had that color until after i did this.

i really want to get these rims i can get all 4 for $430 but i dont think its in my best interrests i think the blue color will match my current rims now.

You don't rub it off. You get a start and peel it off like you would if you got a new phone and it has the piece of plastic on the screen.

That's a different color. Plasti-Dip is awesome though! It's funny that you posted this today as I saw this yesterday.

It really comes off easily. Except rims they aren't HARD, but because of the more curves and bends etc they are more of a challenge. It should come right off. It won't damage your paint either.

I dig it...I plastidipped the bumper, lower grill surround and wheels on my FX4 for the winter and its held up nicely. I'm going to redo it in the spring. Its amazing stuff, I'd like to do my entire Vision.

How much did you use?

How did you apply it at the door edges?

Can you take a couple pictures with the doors open?

Thanks
Ken

alot of people stare at it and today i looked up and some girl was just laughing at it. i dont know what people think cause no one ever told me but some of my girl friends online said they like it .but i think it looks good. its only cost $150 to do.. its takes 4 gallons to do 5 coats on this whole car.. but some places it didnt get as thick as other and i cant figure out why.. im sure i sprayed evenly on the whole car.. i think its better to use an electric gun because you dont loose pressure so the coats will be more even. its $150 for 2 gallons and i use xelyne to thin and thats $20 a gallon at lowes. i use 1 gallon of thin for every gallon of dip.. so its pretty cheap to do.
the one guy i work with keeps calling it pink and its pisses me off cause its not pink.

heres the site where i get the stuff
i was to try flourescent blue next time i think it will match the rims better.

http://www.awarehousefull.com/one-gallon-plasti-dip/

i didnt open to doors or anything. it just sticks.
the only part you have to worry about is how you mask stuff off.. when you peel stuff off be careful you dont rip off the parts you wanted painted cause it all sticks together. they say you should take your tape off when the stuff is still wet. but i didnt do it that way.
if you watch this guy you will see how easy it is...
