OK any dippers (Plasti Dip) try this idea?

I know there are a number of you who are strong users of the product Plasti Dip. There were also a large number at one time who liked the thought of adding the black out hood decal that was a factory feature on the Liberty Renegade.

Has anyone tried taping off the top section of their hood and trying to do a Plasti Dip black out decal as of yet?

Just thinking out loud via my finger tips.

I was thinking about trying the same thing. I was reading one thread (cannot remember if it was here or lost jeep) but some people were saying that it does not hold up well.

Would still like to hear other opinions if anyone else has tried it.

Dipping is temporary solution to your merc'd desires... Or pink for TJ

But more later you put on the longer it will last. When I had my stock wheels they lasted thru out winter surprisingly. I used 3 cans for 4 wheels. Nice and thick like.

Another option is to dip then paint. Colors don't come out as vivid but it's has the properties as dippin but gives you more colors, I'd suggest to over tape the area to avoid over spray.

I kind of look at plasti dip as a vinyl sticker that can be applied via spray can.

the more layers you have the better the result.

as for colors. they sell custom gallons that you spray through regular wagner sprayers to get any color your looking for.

Hah - I misread the thread title. I haven't been on the KK subforum for a while. Myself, I'm a Copenhagen kinda guy........lol.......as far as plastidip I haven't used it on any of our Jeeps. I was never really confident it wouldn't peel off the first wash it went through.

I've taken mine through touch and touchless car washes with no peeling

Though I will admit I was nervous taking it into the touch car wash

Looks good! You guys did a great job on the hood. How much dip did it end up taking if you remember?

thank you, i did it myself first but we didnt have the right spray gun so it came out textured so i took it to someone in my area to do it and he followed the lines i originally had and fixed it lol... i believe we used half a gallon... 3 coats probably could have used 1 more to make the pink a bit brighter as it had faded a little bit supposed to be a HOT pink lol

I think the only issue with using in the plastic-dip for a hood sticker is the its stretchy and when you remove the tape outline it might peal off the hood area you want to keep. I used plastic-dip spray on my rims and tapped the outside of the rim, when i was removing the tape part of the plastic-dip was coming off the rim. I removed the tape and just wiped the outside and lug nuts off with a rag with each coat.

I use a blade to cut it before peeling. Does the trick so you don't peel more than you ment to

was googling KK plasti-dip projects and found this thread ha, I recently did some accents on my wheels and had the same problem with the peel off. Did some research and you ARE supposed to remove the tape when the plasti-dip is still wet. They said even when doing the multiple layers, the last layer liquifies the layers underneath, so you only need to tape once. Wish I would have known this previously! Going to redo my wheels when I dip my whole car.

Hope this might be useful to someone, I know I'm resurrecting an old thread here
