All out BLACK

Ever since I Plasti-Dipped my rims I've wanted to do more. Since the gray part of my Jeep constantly needs to be redone in order to look nice I figured, why not Plasti-Dip it. So I did...

By the way, does anyone have any advice on how to 'properly' take off the tape? I don't want to destroy what I've just done.

Nice! A lot better looking than the grey. Not sure about the tape. I would go along the edge with a toothpick and separate the tape first.

I'd say the "proper" way to take off the tape is to spray it and immediately remove the tape while it's still wet, otherwise you'll have to cut along the taped edge as mentioned.

From what I have read, I heard the plasti-dip doesn't stick well to the cladding on the laredo's but sticks well to the limited's cladding. How is yours sticking?

I'm glad you put this on here. I was thinking about doing the same thing when I get back from my deployment. I have the Shale Green top and I hate the "gray" cladding on the bottom. Yours looks good. Can't wait to get mine done.

Once I'm finished with the Plasti-Dipping part I'm going to put wax on it so that there is a layer or so of wax on it. This way if you were to scratch it, you would scratch the wax, not the Plasti-Dip. I did it on my Dads Tahoe and if you scratch it with your finger it doesn't effect the Plasti-Dip at all.

Since the cladding is close to the ground I'll probably do about 3 coats of wax on it so that it really won't come off. You just have to put the first coat on REALLY gently or you'll rub the Plasti-Dip off.

I believe there was more a problem with the Plasti-dip just didn't like to adhere very well to the cladding of the Laredo. I personally like the look of the flat black of the Plasti-dip then I do of the glossy satin finishes other members have done.

I see in your picture that you have the Grand Cherokee blacked out , did you do this yourself. I'd love to do it myself but I feel like I'll screw it up. Any tips?

Get a spray can, no reason to use anything else.
