I tried this stuff out yesterday. It seemed to apply and cover very well. I did have a problem when removing the tape used to mask areas off. When removing it it also lifted the dip where it was supposed to stay. I used that blue painters tape and tried to remove it directly after applying the last (5th) coat. How have you conquered this issue?

What were you dipping? I didn't tape off my tires because you can just peel it off, but I would treat it the same as oil based paint, when taping. I wouldn't let it totally cure before you peeled the paint off.

I've found that making sure the last coat is nice and thick, and then using your method of peeling away the tape while it's still wet, yields good results.
I peel it right after I spray the last coat, and at a sharp angle, so it seems to "cut the line" better.

I used this method to paint "war paint" stripes on the fender of my '85 MR2.

I also used blue painter's tape, but I'm going to switch soon because that stuff doesn't stay stuck down once the wet plastidip gets sprayed on it.

I don't know if this would work better, but I started using the green painters tape a few years ago because it made a better seal and never went back to blue. I think it's called Frog Tape.

Has anyone tried the Dip Your Car's tip of using a cut garbage bag to cover calipers to dip your wheels while they're still on the car?

We did some ford truck wheels at my shop on the truck but just stuffed the holes with masking paper. Depends on the particular wheel if the bag will work. If there are a lot of angles on the wheel your better off just taking them off.

Looks good, next time to save some time, use the tire shine cleaner and spray tire, then take alcohol and whip rim then just spray without taping. Plasti dip will peel off tire and will be clean edge

I washed my JK and prepped the wheels by using rubber cleaner for the tires and an alcohol wipedown for the wheels. Hoping to spray them tomorrow. I am leaving them on and using the garbage bag trick to cover the calipers. I will try to do before and after pic's.

Sorry if this has already been asked, but how long have your plasti-dipped wheels been lasting before needing to be re-coated? I'm thinking about doing this to my '14 when it gets here, but don't want to have to re-coat like every month. Thanks!

I'm going on a year now...never had to repeat. I did 4 or 5 layers and its lasted this long so far without any issues of peeling

Will plastidip fill this?




Should I get this refinished before dipping or will it fill and not be too noticeable?

Also, I have 5 rims to do and 6 cans of dip.. will I need more?

Thanks!

Here is the finished product. Not even 3 full cans. Did 5 coats on 4 tires. My spare has a cover on it and I didn't feel like doing it today.

YouTube has some great videos put on their by the Dip Your Car guys. In one of them, they dipped a car that had curb rash and it filled it in nicely.

Plenty of dip! I used 4 cans for 4 coats on 5 wheels. The divots should fill as long as you do 4 or 5 coats and its thicker. Try spraying just the area that has the marks and do as many coats as you plan for the whole wheel, but just in that one spot. If it fills, peel off and then do the whole wheel. Test it and only waste a partial can rather than the whole thing. Should be good to go tho

I did my Ram wheel few years back. It looked great for awhile, but right now they have a brown/dirty tint to them from brake dust that I can't get off. Anybody else have this issue?

From my experience a good rule of thumb is to dedicate a can to each wheel. Just put on coats until it runs out. Cuz with this stuff you can't put on enough. At least I haven't seen it yet.. and I haven't felt like wasting dip on an experiment.

Just brought the jeep to dealer to fix my lockers... Hope they don't scratch the rims. I am still nervous about handling them with the plasti dip on. Even when I take the tires on/off I grab from the rubber which is just me being nervous tho.

You know what? I just noticed brake dust/dirt on mine last week for the first time. They've been dipped about a year now. I was washing the Jeep and it caught my eye. I couldn't clean it off, but I really didn't try that hard. Made a mental note to go back and work on it. I'll post my results.
