Anyone plasti-dip a spare tire cover? Would love to know if it's a good solution to eliminating dealership logo (couldn't say no to a free cover, but would like to eliminate the free advertising).

Huh? Are you in Canada? It's pricy here but nothing outer-worldly. $7.oo U.S or $20.00 Canadian isn't really all that much and it's one of the cheaper mods out there. Just buy a can every once in a while and that'll help, and don't need a great many, four or five will do most projects, and then some. Availability, now that's a different story north of the border.

Thought I would share mine. I even used Plasti Dip to tint the tail light on my bike and the grill on my JKUS. Holds up well to wheelin and power washing/car wash.

wow...

I don't see how these graffiti artists do it. I used almost 4 cans for 4 wheels and my trigger finger/hand was crampin like crazy! The end result however, pretty awesome! My wife has warned me not to touch anything of hers with Plasti-Dip. I guess she sees the potential for abuse.

But I have loved reading all the stories, tips, advice, and ribbing!

One thing I noticed about the Dip, is that it isn't really black. Against my black paint, under the right light, it almost looks dark brown.

Has anyone actually done "real" paint OVER Dip? It would be color-matched, glossy, satin, or flat (as desired), yet still removable. Right?
Maybe an adhesion promoter coat would be needed first, like painting a plastic bumper.

Tnx

This plasti dip is a sickness. Yep, you can paint over it. This thing has held up nicely this season. That is black plasti dip with tan and od green sprayed over the plasti dip.

I did it and it looks great. Didn't take much to cover it either. The best part - dealers give you the spare tire cover for FREE if you go to the parts counter and ask for a dealer logo'd wrangler tire cover. That's what the part manager said to me. For them, it's business advertising but for us, we plastidip it!

Since I've been seeing this alot I figured it was a cheap way to see if I really liked the black wheels on my black JKU. I took off the spare and did that one as a test. 3 full coats and a light 4th coat and it came out flawless and I do believe the other 4 will get done soon!

Anyone have opinions on durability?

If you're doing city driving how long does it last? If an area looks chipped how do you repair?

How would this hold up in snowy/winter conditions?

How exactly do you apply? Spray all over let it sit for a few hours and rinse repeat 3 times?

I've got to say that your Jeep looks awesome. Great job. Jeep should offer a color like that.

Well, considering that I already had the razors and cardboard mat laying around (I took them all off the jeep and painted 'em at the same time), about $38 for the 5 cans of Plasti-Dip at Home Depot, of which I only used 4 (at this point so far...).

Based on my experience cutting and peeling off the lug nut area overspray, this stuff seems pretty tough if you put in on thick. I put 5 coats on each of the five wheels, allowing 30 minutes between coats and an hour after the last. I held the can about 4 inches away and it was in a wind-guarded garage at about 68 degrees.

I decided to cover some steel molle racks I got off ebay with what I had leftover and did that during the day, in the sun, and it seemed to add more texture to the finished coat. I can't really speak on durability since its only been 4 days, but I've already gotten lots of compliments on them.

Man that sounds like a perfect solution for painting the Sahara rims if I end up going with that for now until I get the ones I'm really wanting.

How do you remove the 5 coats if an area is scratched and you have to re-do the thing?

Removal of this stuff seems pretty straight forward, I used a toothpick to poke a hole or get a corner lifted and then it just comes of like a sheet of cellophane but with a little resistance since it does have a small amount of bond.

For those that might read this thread this far and want to paint their wheels I placed a quarter in the lug nut holes and it kept the plastidip out of the conical seat and avoids having to do any major cleanup before re installing the wheels.

Here you go...

Sprayed a couple of coats on a while back and haven't had any issues at all!

Egads, I want a Dozer colored Jeep. When the wife's 2010 sport is paid off, I'm snagging a JK Dozer.

This quote could be applied to anything: prostitutes, drinking alcohol, driving your Jeep nude with top down....LOL! Anyway, why not with Plastidip? It doesn't cost much and is reversible but people will always hate on stuff they don't like themselves so whatever. That's like posting up in the "Show us your Gecko" thread, saying "just because you could buy a neon green Jeep, doesn't mean you should." If you don't like plastidip, stay out of the thread. Simple as that.

Thanks! It really looks good and is durable too. I only had to touch up the edges of the wheels when the tires were rotated. Just use some mineral spirits with a latex glove and dab it on the ripped edges and it smooths out. Then re-apply more plastidip and it looks like it never happened!

Yeah I seen a color like OD green but it looks more like shiny pea soup, not good. I did like the desert tan color they had. I think a matte or flat color like black, tan, OD green would sell really well, especially to us military guys.
