Took whatever this panel is called off and sprayed it black. Didn't do a very good job, but I just wanted to see what it looked like. I used like 4-5 cans on it, all of which were almost empty. Couldn't take an after pic, will tomorrow.

Can anyone supply me with the name of that panel?

Its a hood cowl. I almost fell out of my chair when I read that you used 4-5 cans on it, but then saw that they were almost all empty.

Has anyone tried this on a standard (non painted) hard top?

I'm thinking a charcoal grey color top (and other accents as well) would look pretty sweet with my True Blue Sahara...But assuming it potentially doesn't, the idea of just peeling it off seems like a worthwhile gamble.

Could be pretty sweet. They do have gunmetal plastidip, so you're good there. Will probably need around 4-5 cans to get a nice thick peelable coat.

Has anyone used the rattle can gunmetal color yet? I'm seriously considering doing my wheels, emblem, and all the Sahara chrome stuff in it before I go all out and dip the roof too, but I'd love to see something else done in it first...

Or does Bayou gotta be the guinea pig?

I have on my friend's wheels. Looked nice. For my rig I prefer the black though.

Any chance of a pic? I'm not against going black (jokes aside...), but it seems like everyone is going that route and personally, I think I'd like contrast of the Blue/Gray better. The silver/chrome with this True Blue is a little too drastic for my taste...

Somebody has to be

I think on your rig, the Gunmetal would be sweet... for me it's black, but then mines Crush and black only...

I haven't done mine, but I've seen it done. You tape off around them, and then put news paper around the tape so it's basically sectioned off. I think there's a picture somewhere earlier in the thread, don't quote me on that though.

I don't personally have pics, but I have used a number of their colors, including red on my s2000.

Here are some new colors dipyourcar has released....I feel they are an accurate representation....

Vintage Gold




True Anthracite




True Aluminum




I have always loved plastidip but now with all the colors available, not to mention the fact that you can make your own, the possibilities are literally endless.

Damn straight. The only thing is, to really bring out the metallic you need to hit it with one coat of glossifier, but it still looks awesome. I actually think a black JK would look amazing with the gold wheels, almost like Jeep's own dragon concept. Black and gold IMHO work very well together.

I just got back from a day trip to the states where I picked up 6 cans of black plasti-dip! (All other Canadians on this thread will appreciate why I got it there instead). So stoked to get going but...

I just have one question before I tackle my rims. Do I need to peel off the excess and re-tape the lug nuts for every coat or can I just peel the outside and the lugnuts after its done? Also do you wait for it to dry to any extent before peeling away the excess?

I get that, I've done it before when I did my grill and other things. What I mean is, the upper tj door hinge and windshield hinge are one solid piece, no lines. So I'm wondering how to go about the upper hinge, design wise.

No, you don't need to peal/tape between coats... and yes, I'd wait an hour or so after the last coat before pealing it clean. Also, depending on the piece I'm doing, I may take a sharp blade and run a tear line before pulling the tape. That worked very well when I did my freedom panels.

Also, on wheels it's much easier to do them off the rig... just place nickles over the lug holes, and remove the center cap if you're not going to spray that.

If you spray one good coat just before you peel tape you won't need to use a razor blade.. just don't cake the stuff on so thick that it may run.

Hope the pic isn't squashed. If it is I'll load them seperately.

Attachment 220861

Got a kick out of this from where I sprayed my bezels and jeep cover-thing(?) Wasn't planned at all. Didn't notice it till I went to fold up tarp. :]

Cookie Monster.. there you are!

you should post a pic with your turn signal on/drivin lights so we can see how it shines through?
