I really like the look of the 10A wheel, just thought it would look better in red. When I actual paint them the red will be darker

Looks good! But, why paint? I've had Plastdip on mine for almost a year with no problems.

Only reason I want to paint is I don't think it will last long with the sharp edges left from where I had taped it off. I figured moisture would get under and cause it to come loose. Plus once painted I planned on clear coating wheel with por 15's glisten. I had used it on the brake calipers on my trams am, painted 8years ago and still looked like the day I painted them. I also plan to paint calipers on jeep red too.

They will hold up fine if you prep correctly, but unlike paint (which WILL chip on you) the plastidip can be fixed, redone, removed, changed up, etc.

I like it! Go for it!

I have thought about doing something like this as well. You can get your jeeps exact matching paint in a rattle can. I think it is Mopar brand but you can get it from Ebay, Quadratec and elsewhere. I just ordered one spray can of my jeeps color to touch up when I cut my pinch seam.

I'm just not sure how to do the rims. After you tape it off, do you use a primer and then paint or do you need to lightly sand the area, prime and then paint? Clear coat? Rattle Can matching paint is lacquer.

Anyway, photos when you get it done!

Headlights no problem at all...

The front where my blinker is...
I took too long peeling off the other areas while yapping and the dip attached to the tape.

I should have resprayed before just peeling it off, then it woulda never happened.

Im going to try and cut off the damage, and touch it up.
Worse case, imma just peel this faring and start over on this part.
Thats part of the fun with this stuff.

Im also going to try and stencil some camo on my doors, maybe make a stencil "sticker" or two also.

Ill post if i do.

No need to remove anything. Watch this video. The stuff he is using to thin it down is xylene. Home Depot sells cans of it for like $10. Buy one can, and it will last you another 20 years.



The trick to peeling the tape off with a clean edge is you must peel it off as soon as your FINAL coat of plastidip is applied. Spay the last coat, and remove the tape ASAP.

On my head lights, yes there is some loss. They are more dramatic then i will really do them. Its just for fun for now, im replacing them next week and will slap on either a less dramatic angry eye or use tinted decals. I just wanted to see how they looked.

Also, thanks for the video on touch up, great info.

Before i try it...
Id like some advice and ideas...

On my next weekend (tues - thrus)
i plan on plasti dippin black and white camo on my doors.

Im not sure if a stencil would work as nicely,

If i tape down the stencil,
Stencil Removal is my concern...
Im guessin ill need to carefully exacto the stencil off directly after the final coat,
then smooth the edges out.

Or if using a stencil,
Don't tape it down,
Just hold it up over the pattern
after each coat.

or if i should just try and tape off the camo pattern.
Sounds like a pain in the butt and time consuming.
Im not against it, just blah to time consumption ya know.

Any ideas.

I'm quoting you but this may be good info for this thread in general:

I showed the pics of your grill to my sister to see what she thought. Her opinion wasn't going to affect whether I did it, just wanted to get a non-jeeper's opinion; she especially liked the angry eyes. She said to spread a layer of vasaline or something similar over the tape after you've got it situated to prevent the dip from sticking to it, and that would keep you from having to take it up while it's wet. (For reference, she's an art major about to graduate from ETSU here in TN) I thought that sounded like a pretty sound idea, my biggest concern would be getting it on the edge of the tape but not on the jeep. I plan to try it as soon as it gets warm here when I do my grill, but idk how long that will be. If someone else feels like trying it beforehand, let me know how it does.
