So I noticed my plasti dip starting to peel... Has anyone else had this issue? and what is the best approach to make it right? Peal all off then reapply?
Thanks

Here's the one I was trying to hit. The bottom wouldn't be that different, but the top is one big piece for the door and windshield hinge.
I think it will look good, matching your grille. Your yellow will contrast much more than my dark green, however.

Thanks. I've got a matching set. First one didn't bother me. Second was just careless.

Will do thanks

I just recently joined the forum and last night I found this thread. I had never heard of plasti-dip, but I just purchased two cans from lowes and I'm testing it out on my trail rated badge.

Plasti Dip Coating Wheels

Sneck, you may just be too hard on your rig for Plasti-Dip.
Yep, may not be such a good idea.

Wow that will probably hold up a lot better than mine. Was it hard to take off? On tjs its so difficult its just not worth it. Much easier to mask off.

Sometime this week I plan to pull the fender flares and dip them. Also, new tires tomorrow hopefully(nothing special, just gonna find the cheapest we can in town) and I'm curious to see if I'll have to re-dip the wheels, or if the process will mess with it much.

Well tonight I wanted to take out the HID system the dealership had in there (yes the dealership sold me my JKU with illegal HIDs). I figured since I had to take the grill off I might as well try my hand at plasti-dipping.

I did have mesh in between the grills but the adhesive was coming off on a few so I took them all off. I will be putting them back on once I get more tip ties. I think it came out really well. Hopefully it holds up.

I can pull a JK grill off in under 60 seconds.

as nfrs2000 says it takes a minute if you take your time. 6 plastic push/pull rivets are all that is holding it on. There is some clips at the bottom and the turn singnals just pop off via 2 clips no tools are needed if you have strong finger nails to pull the push/pull rivets out. One thing is it makes you realize how easy it would be for some one to steal your grill.

Interesting. To get the the grill off you have to loosen/remove the radiator and a few other things.

I did my bubbling door hinges the other day. Door locks and Jeep emblem previously. Doing well so far.

Looks better than my attempt to do the hinges. As soon as I pulled the masking tape away the plasti dip went with it

I did them while I was changing ball joints. 4 coats and plenty of time to dry before peeling. Also used an exacto knife along the edge so it didn't all pull off.

Thanks for the tip. I might try it again. I had read that you should spray one more time and then pull the tape while it is still wet.

The other part of me just wants to call up my buddy that is a painter and have him do it for a case of beer.

The knife version works great just be sure not to cut the paint.

Any Prep work involved before doing the grill? I imagine clean it to get a smooth surface, but did you all wipe it with acetone or anything prior to spraying?

I wiped my grill down with alcohol. Worked great. Got to get to the third coat or so before it starts looking good.

I washed it, rubbed it with alcohol and used a detailer on tough spots.

Do not over do it when spraying. Go light and do multiple layers.

how many cans did that take? Don't need an exact number, just a round about, give or take a few hundred will be fine.
