Plasti dip

So anyone with experience with this? (saw one thread about rearsets in search but not alot info)


I thought it was interesting; not saying I have a project for it yet


But may be a nice protectant for rock chips etc on long trips like the 3 sistas/1 day trips.

I'll take a look thank you.

I always like to try new things for my own curiosity and exploration. Tinkering is my downfall but it is a great way to try new things/gain new experience.

on youtube I believe I saw related videos with different colors.

What drew me to this was remembering Curtis' frozen black M3(northsiders know him) and the frozen grey M3 that comes into our dealership.

I done my wifes Honda Civic SI rims in white to see what it would look like, it worked great and i peeled (pressure washed) it off a few months later. I had no complaints what so ever and it lasted great!

Pretty durable stuff. Did grille and chrome accents black on wifes Mini. Lasted a few months before it started peeling. Just re-apllied it before I sold it... Great if u want to see what a new color will look like temporary before you do something permanent

The FJ Cruiser forums love that . They recolor their badges, wheels, roofs, everything with it. If it can hold paint, they'll try to plastidip it. lol.

I personally have never messed with it. But as far as I'm aware it's a sprayable vinyl coating, and theoretically you can peal it off like vinyl when you're sick of it. May not work on a porous surface though. Also, last time I checked, Lowe's sells it for a reasonable price.

Works great on chrome. I sprayed the primary on my bike and it held up well. I peeled it off when I had to replace the gasket and the chrome still looks brand new. Just be sure to clean the part well to remove any grease/oil. I'm planning on doing my tank and rear fender as well.

The Bking has a large and ugly chrome trim on the gas tank that I plastidipped. It's fairly forgiving to mistakes and peels off if you tire of it. It dries to a textured finish.

Ive thought about it, they would work out, but after you wash your bike out in a burm or lay it down the plasti dip is gona mess up. it peels away with force.

tear free plastidip I hope

Might try this on the project car rather than the Rustoleum through a HVLP gun.

There was a video of a dad plasti-dipping his kids feet, saying it was the best type of socks. That was forever ago, before the plasti-dip fad.

This stuff seems really cool and all, but it doesn't look like it would hold up well in the long run. If he can just start it peeling by rubbing it, it seems like this stuff would start coming off really quickly.

I guess it would depend on where it was applied. High contact locations like the tank: yeah it would probably have a short life. Then again, I did spray my primary and it held until I removed it and I have mid-controls, so my boots did touch/rub. But, that is the beauty of it, just peel and re-apply.
