Plasti Dip what it is, and what does it look good on

Ok guys im seeing allot of posts about plasti dip and people recommending it. I did some research and found out its basically a plastic like coating that people use for tools. I have seen youtube videos of people doing their rims in this. My question is what are the advantages and what looks good on 4th gen coated in this?

Re: Plasti Dip what it is, and what does it look good on

The biggest advantage is its temporary, as in you can peel it off if you don't like it. Thats also the biggest downside though. It's not gonna last forever, and if it ever starts to peel, the whole thing is gonna come off. That being said, its great to see how things might look on your car.
I snagged a can of black plastidip andtest painted a spare berger panel just to see how it looked and it was pretty good, but not at nice as my actually painted panel. I tried my mirrors too just because I was bored and those came out pretty nice, but I peeled everything off after a week. It comes out looking really close in color and shiny-ness to flat black.

Re: Plasti Dip what it is, and what does it look good on

Thanks guys, this stuff is pretty cool, basically can temporally paint anything you want. Now I can play around with paint combos and stripes without it being permanent. Just curious how easy does it come off? What would you recommend painting on our 4th gens?

Thanks So Much

Re: Plasti Dip what it is, and what does it look good on

I dont believe this stuff would hold up very well to outdoor conditions or car washes nor would it be very scratch resistant. I think it would be hard to apply too, although the work people are doing with it looks good. I dont know, If I was doing some wheels I would Just pay the $$ to have them painted or powder coated. and it is silly to use this stuff for stripes when vinal stripe kits are available.

Re: Plasti Dip what it is, and what does it look good on

Used plasti dip on my grill on the CTS-V, it's my daily driver and it gets detailed every Friday and not chipping or peeling here. The stuff isn't going to come off unless you want it to. Everyone that's saying it won't hold up to daily outdoor conditions obviously has never used the product or knows anything about it.

Re: Plasti Dip what it is, and what does it look good on

It comes in clear...

anybody use it as a clear bra or behind their wheels to prevent tar and gravel from sticking to the paint?

Theoretically couldn't it be used as a substitute for claybarring your car? Or at least remove the brake dust from your wheels when you remove it from the inside of your wheels? Seems like it's almost like a girl getting her legs waxed. Hey... there's an idea...

The inner t-top area on that ls1tech topic looks cool

This is a topic I saw awhile back in the Grand Prix section and I thought it looked great. http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/paint-...xperiment.html

Sounds like a good solution to the inevitable cracked dash piece on all fourth gen F-bodies.
