Plasti Dipped My Jeep

So I was bored today..... A friend of mine had ordered there sprayer along with gallons of white, black and grey paint. So I went there with the intent of going flat white but come to find out that they had shipped extra grey instead of white. Well we both were interested to see how this plasti dip would turn out so even though white was my intent our curriosity got the best of us and settled for grey. It was sooo easy, peels off just as videos show and leaves a perfect line as if it were masked, pretty much fool proof just as the videos show, so when the white comes in im going to mix some pear in along with the white and redo it. Here is a couple pics.

I can tell you that it holds up a lot better than a rattle can paint job on a grill. I was constantly repainting my grill on my truck flat black, plasti dipped it few months back and it still looks the same as the day I painted it.

Did the sprayer require a air compressor? If it doesn't I may just do mine.

Well the sprayer you order on there site comes with an electric type of compressor, its like a small shop vac with the hose attached to blow. So no need for air compressor

know how much a set up would cost? I've been debating this for a while. I am wanting to repaint my entire jeep one color but haven't decided what. i'm leaning keeping the red. I have been wanting to plastidip to see what it looks like without making the mistake of painting the jeep the wrong color and hating it..

any pics during your process? i want to come see your jeep...

You can get everything you need including paint/plasti dip for 250-300. That comes with sprayer, the so called air pump to power the spray, blue tape " EVERYTHING". I just sprayed the silver metalizer over the grey because I wasnt too please with the flat grey color (it looks good on a new gtr or lambo but on a 97 tj it looks like primer). The matalizer made it look like a fishing lure, gave it more of a gloss and added large metalic flakes. I like it alot better. I can try and post a pic in a few but pics dont do it justice. I didnt get any pics of the process but you can come see it any time and I can explane the process. Just shoot me a pm

Very cool. I'm looking forward to seeing this in Moab.

I put down Monstaliner in the tub and on the front grill and have been toying with doing the entire exterior. It's the prep work nightmare that would stop me from Monsta-ing the exterior.

Over the mountains and through the woods, across the stream and up the slickrock, down the canyon and over the rocks to nobody's house I go.

I am very much looking forward to upcoming moab trip!

I hear ya, I herculined my tub in and out under all the armor. It is a chore. Entire exterior would be nice to have done for so many reasons.
