Agreed. Patience is key. Those who have crap results usually rushed it.

What's the best method for dipping the antenna? I imagined holding up a piece of cardboard or poster or something behind it and spraying it all around.

Just hang it in the middle of an open area and spray around it. Worked for me.

Yeah, hang it. Cardboard does not work so well....as it tends to dry to the cardboard....at least for me it did.

But the stock antenna does look better in black.

Went to town with plastidip. I'm no expert and it wasn't difficult. It took about 10 cans. Now that I know I like it, I'll follow-up with bed liner in the spring.

I meant like holding a big posterboard or something up like an inch or so behind it and then spraying directly at it, moving the spray angle to get every spot and keeping the posterboard behind it to stop any overspray.

I did but i put some newspaper behind the wheels so I don't get any on the rotors and other parts. I also taped off the lugnuts and tire valve. Took a few minutes to prep but worth it in the end. Any overspray on the tires peels right off so it was easy.

Nice looking TJ. I had an '06 with the light bar but I won't go with another light bar. Too much wind noise at higher speeds which was annoying. Here's my '06 TJ. I miss her though.

How does everyone feel about the glossifier? I'm tempted to pick up a few cans and try it out.

I'll pick up my CG JK in a few weeks from another city, I'd love to spray it as soon as I have it... what would be the drying times?

Any prolems peeling it off after you sprayed it? Or did you remove the stencil after every coat?

I probably should've peeled it off between coats but didn't. Fortunately I didn't have too many issue, a couple of minor pieces looked a little rough when I pulled the stencil off so I tried to trim it carefully with an x-acto knife.

If I decide to re-do it, I will try removing the stencil between coats.

Has anyone sprayed plastidip during the winter months (sub 50 degrees)? I am wondering how much it affects the drying time and smooth finishing...

I did my wheels in 38 degree weather with the door wide open... Dry time suckeedddd it was about a solid 10min per coat. i grabbed an eletctric heater and kida held it at each wheel for a few min and that sorta helped. After the final coat (i think i did about 4) i shut the garadge door and left the heater on in the garadge all night. Came out justttt fine

Dozer, I wouldn't do it, most paints have issues with cold and plasti-dip is much more viscous than spray-paints. It's prone to be being gloppy at the best of times. However, doesn't hurt to try it since you can just peal it off it ends up sucking. Show picks if it does or doesn't work.
