i would never pay someone to paint my truck again. lol ^^ i rattlecanned about 4 or 5 months ago and its still in the exact same condition as when i did it, just a little dirtier as my truck is in need of a clean redoing it with my new paint gun in about a week and im very confident that will last me a very long time

Re: Plastic dip thread!

thats the same brand i use..and yeah they have been PD'ed for a while now with no peeling or anything. just use masking take and tape off an area big enough to stop over-spray and leave about a 1"-2" square around the letters. Use a toothpick to clear out the parts inside the letters and when peeling pull the PD away from the letter outline and it should peel easily. I used 4 coats on mine, one from ever angle then some trim touch up for some shine. makes for a real clean look on them..let me know if you have anymore questions on it!

Did you do the plastic bumper cap too, or are you lucky enough that yours just hasn't faded yet? lol

I'm thinking of glossing everything I dip so it has a shiny look and hopefully will clean easier.

Thanks,
Most of mg truck has been done for a year and a half. Still looking good

Re: Plastic dip thread!

Found a new use for plastidip. For those of whom with concealed carry holsters and find the belt clips a little sharp, plastidip is the way to go. I have scratched my trucks paint, the driver door pocket, my dresser, my hand, that spring metal can be like razor blades. I have dipped them once before (4 coats) and one side came off. Just goes to show how much it rubs against other things! I'm right now in the proccess of redoing it. YEAH Plastidip!!

Beer makes me smarterer
2009 CC long bed, extra napkins in glove box, ejector seat, 2* timing advance, a couple pens and paper along with a flashlight and candy in center console, Justin Bieber needs to die, I turn the wipers on when it rains, cabin air filters, headlights are good at night, junk mail gets thrown in back seat, forward launching napalm, washing machine parts and tow strap in rear door pocket, flux capacitor, & a full tank of gas.

Recently added: Herpes all over stereo bezel, spider nest in flux capacitor, really bad fart/vomit smell once windows are touched...door handles are where I keep my booger collection.
