Plasti dip on body

Anyone very use plasti dip on body panels or hood? What or how did you outline it? Tape? I tired to tape it on the hood but it setup faster then I could get the tape off. Even tired spraying and pulling tape right behind it, no go either, any help or tips greatly appreciated thanks.

Let it dry before you take the tape off. That's what I did on my car, I only plasti dipped my spoiler, but it worked fine.

Yes. Try that. It's supposed to come off where you want it when dry.

I have found that if I put it on too thick I have to CAREFULLY go along the tape line with a razor.

Re: Plasti dip on body

i once plasti dipped a set of wheels and i kept the dip on them over the winter so that the salt and other crap didn't eat away at my chrome wheels. it protected them very very well considering that i put on about 4-5 layers of the dip on. I also want to mention that i did let the wheels dry for a full 24 hours before putting them back on the truck. But now the issue that i ran into was when i went to peel the dip off, it was very dry and kept ripping. it took me about 4 days to get all the remaining plasti dip off my wheels... huge pain in the ass if you ask me. If i ever want to black out anything or have something covered i think its much easier to just get it painted professionally. But for a quick protection or cool look plasti dip is cool stuff.

Re: Plasti dip on body

Ive been thinking about doing a house of kolor type paint on my truck. Check out dipyourcar.com figure it would be cheaper then a real paint job & if I don't like it I can always have my old paint back for free

Never thought of that, thanks for the idea.
