Carl, the original post regarding FJ was edited, so it should no longer be an issue.

Let's get back to some Plasti-Dip... here's a vid showing it being removed. Might be really good for long-distance travelling to car shows instead of using green tape!

^^ nice, he did that one handed too.

As far as hating goes, there is a right and a wrong way to say things, My personal favorite is "Wow, not my thing but if you like it awesome." Also I don't care if anyone hates on my ride. I like it and nothing anyone says will ever change that, I am always open for criticism as opinions matter (Most of the time ) as far as the gas door, I think it's an interesting little feature and since it matches the other accents I think it goes well with the overall look I am going for.

Oh and BTW a CF door might not body match but something it would match is my CF hood. Just saying.

Anyway, it's all about the cars, not everything people do is going to be accepted by everyone, if it was we would all have the same car and the same mods, am I right?

Now enough drama, let's get some more cool pics, after all it is a SHOWROOM!

It's this stuff kinda heavy on rims though?

Doesn't it dramatically affect the balance?

^^ absolutely not. We used it as a "lets see how it's gonna look" base.
We spray the OEM wheel with plasti dip, let it dry and then we painted rims green. If we wouldn't like it, then you just have to wait till the paint dries a bit and peel it off with the base plasti dip. And onto another color...

Also dipped my wheel center caps. The Ford logo still pops out a bit as it's raised on teh caps, but hard to see from a distance. Not sure if I like it as the wheels are glossy black, caps now matte black. Pics up later today.

I plan on plastidipping my dad's 70's chevy truck. It's got some spots on the roof and the hood that have started to rust and since we don't have the cash monies for a new paint job we are gonna plastidip them to stop the rusting process. It's a red truck, pics later tonight

What DVolpe said. At the very least, apply some POR15 to it before covering it with PlastiDip.

Absolutely, sadly we ran out of the can I had and had to stop as we couldn't get another can today. He is going to get another one tomorrow and finish it up.

About 20 min of sanding though and almost all the rust is gone. As of now 2/3rds of the roof is now protected.
