I'm assuming that gas will melt plasti dip as well? I want to do my flares, but I have a problem with gas overflowing when I fill up (which is often) and I don't want it to just wash away.

Anyone **re-dip** anything? Like recoating wheels after a few months... does it just adhere like the last coat does the first time you do it... thinking of re-doing mine this fall to get rid of the trail scratches from the summer runs...

Also, on the gas thing... I had the same problem... now I just let the pump run til it clicks off, and don't try to put more in, no more slop...

Bedline your flares and be done with it.

I imagine MtChef has one of those years of Jeeps that have the fuel filler tubes that overflow BEFORE the the pump clicks off. I can't recall the year of jeeps that have that issue.

Of course it's just what any Jeeper needs which is to have your Jeep use even more gas than it already does!!

I agree with others bedline the fenders.

x2. Its not worth the cost of the dip. You know you want em black so why put somethin on that's designed to be removable? I'm plannin on bedlining my wheels when the current plastidip layer wears out. Cuz I'm sure I want em black and I'm tired of redoing them like when I got new tires.

You should get green lugs to match you seat covers. Black and green always looks great.

Did the raised section on my hood. Made the mistake of starting this with only 1.5 cans of dip. Shouldve had 2-3. As it is ill probably just move the tape like a few millimeters out and respray later. Might give me a chance to make the corners better. If all else fails, I'll at least have my hood hinges dipped. Made sure to cover them thoroughly for just that purpose.

It's an 06. It clicks off then comes pouring out. I try to listen when it's close, but I don't always catch it.

Bed line the fenders. Heard!

If you do the grille and you don't like the look you can just pill it off? New to Platidip.

Yep! That's the "a-peel" ( sorry, had to do it) to it!

Peels off rather easily and stubborn spots - hit it with WD-40 and it comes right off.

Looks really good on the Dune. Some colors I don't like it as much.

It basically looks and feels like a rougher texture, like I bedlined it, and I feel like there is no way I could peel it off of the rim either...I don't know how I screwed it up, I watched a ton of videos before I did it and can't see how I messed up the application. I cleaned the wheel with alcohol beforehand also. In any case it still looks good, I just feel like it didn't apply the way it should have...

The trick is to make sure you have enough thinkness to it. They recommend about 5 good coats on wheels. With that you should easily be able to peel it off the wheels. On the tires, unless the tire is so slick that tape won't adhere to it I'd recommend taping it up. We did the same thing on an old truck we were testing the dip on. Tires were not slick enough and we had to work to get the dip off. Lacquer thinner takes it off the tire or you can slowly work it with your fingers till you get a blister. Either way is a pain. I'll tape mine the next time I do any.

I wouldn't use a brush because the finish won't look right. The door you should tape off, but there should be space behind the badge to slip paper in, all around to block off any overspray.

No need. The gap between badge and body causes the peel to separate naturally.

I used 3 gallons with my HVLP Earlex Spray Gun. Cans are too inconsistent, if you are spraying large areas shoot with a spray gun.
