Plasti Dip Question

I am looking into Plasti dipping my bumpers and fender flares. Will Plasti dip damage my paint?

No it does not damage paint. Its basically just like a plastic protective layer, you can peel right off whenever your tired of it. The more coats the easier it will be to get off when you do so. I did my rims on my lancer 5 coats..decided to remove it came right off.

no but that stuff is a complete waste of time. it peels off alot easier than i thought. i used it on a few things, gave it 5 coats and it did not hold up at all. i don't know how guys coat thier entire cars with it. i thought it was going to be tougher and more like the rubber found on the handles of tools. maybe the stuff in a can is but the rattle can stuff sucked.

It is going to be like any paint process. It needs the proper prep done to the item being painted, which means clean. It is also better if the surface could be lightly deglossed or roughed up to provide a good surface to stick to.

Also keep in mind that every product fits a certain purpose, I'm not sure that "Da Dip" was designed to be used in the enviroment of highway driving conditions cruising at speed of 70 MPH plus. Think of it in the manner of a good paint job on a front bumper would cost you a couple of hundred dollars. A can of Dip around $5...there is a reason for the difference in pricing. Just set your expectations accordingly.

Have you thought about looking in to www.rhinolinings.com? Get it sprayed on the bottom quarter of your doors and your bumpers. I know a lot go for the plasti dip but ultimately its crap and will peel off. I kind of equate it to the people who put their own window tint on, 95% dont have a clue what they are doing and they end up with bubbles, voids, scratches, tears and misalignments. For a lot less than you might think you can have a pro shoot it on for you.

Just my opinion

Ok well look at it this way depending on which branf you use its 50+ a gallon plud what the "pro" charges and thats just saying the pro doesnt fk your **** up but with plasti fip it doesnt even matter 6 bucks a can and five or six months down the road you want to change it up just peel away. And pros do.make mistakes

I've also had my jeep dipped for about 6 months i two toned my wheels and painted all my badges and grill. the dip holds up great to the texas heat and even discount tire changing out a bad tire and hacking away at my rim only managed to put a few small tears in the edge of the dip. for the price and the overall quality I love this product and back it 100% My next project is dipping a kk renegade esque matte red cutout on the hood and dipping my interior

I dipped my wheels and emblems, gonna do the tail lights next. I love this product because if you mess up or don't like the look then you can just easily peel it right off, I would recommend this to anyone.
