Well I got off my lazy butt and hit up the Lowes and got a rattle can of Plastidip and did some car modding today.







Anyone else had some fun with Plastidip? Post up some pics!

I know Pattacular has some pics [popcorn]






Temp usage. -30 - 200

The rims came black, but my whole car is covered in a VERY fine ash due to the fires nearby, getting too close for comfort to be honest, less than 5 miles away now. So the matte black rims are supposed to be glossy, but I have heard of people plastidipping the rims.

just a question, what's the point? why not paint it with normal paint? it just looks black....
I can just peel it off if I want, it's a rubber substance that is sprayed on and it looks matte like the door handles and pillars.

Also they don't make Carbon Fiber gas doors for our cars so I can't do that. T_T

Don't mean to go off topic here, but best of luck to you. [eek]
Thanks, there is a whole lot of concrete between me and the fire but still, all it takes is a change of the wind and then I might start worrying more. [dunno]

do you follow same steps as regular paint? looks good!!
just clean and spray. don't sand, plastidip acts just like vinyl and clings to the paint. masking off it the same, but you don't need to worry about spraying on other surfaces because it just comes right off with a rag.

Question: How many cans do you need to do your wheels. I have been thinking about spraying my winter wheels.

Here is mine. "Euro Style" Vents and my chrome trunk trim when I had a 00-04 rear end.
