You didn't read the post I was replying too. The guy was asking if he could spray dip onto a surface the paint was already peeling off of and not risk peeling the rest of the paint when he removed the dip.

Read the whole conversation before you reply.

When you are using your phone its a little different to keep changing pages and whatnot. You could have just pointed it our nicely but no, you couldn't.

I'm on my phone right now. 90% of the time I'm on FF I'm on my phone.

If it looks like someone is replying to a specific post I always go back to make sure I'm reading the whole story before I post. Oftentimes it changes my whole reply.

I plasti-dipped my side moldings. I didn't even finish sanding the peeling off paint. This stuff is amazing. While you can see the edge of the painted part and non-painted part the plastidip is thick enough to make it look damn good from 5-10ft away so much so that I decided to just throw them back on my car.




Still need a side skirt for that side though.

Quick question..
If one was to paint, say a wheel, completely in plasti-dip and then use normal spray paint to paint one spoke a different color not found in the plasti-dip color pallet, would one still be able to pull everything off like normal?
