Yea you can do it with them on the jeep, just have to cover everything behind. There's some good videos on dipyourcar.com showing this

Did my grill today. Was going to do the grill mesh mod while it was off too, but I misplaced a bag of my tie strap anchors. Save that up for tomorrow I guess. Love the look. I used to have to only white Jeep in my town, and now there are at least 3 others, so I had to change it up a bit...

Before... ho- hum....


As of today... vroom vroom !!!!

Looks awesome!^

How'd you go about doing the wheels? You leave the tires on and use index cards?

I left the tires on and just stuffed old T-shirts in between the spaces in the wheels to cover up the brake components etc. and masked the lugs. Sprayed, and then backed up about 3 feet and did the parts that were missed from the top. Any excess spray just peels off the tires.

Put the jeep on stands and sprayed the whole thing. Remove the center caps and a tip I saw on here is business cards works a lot better than tape!

Here is my plastidipped grill.
I did do my door hingers, howeveri pulled the masking tape AFTER the dip dried and it pulled the edges off, so i just ripped them all off and it looks like it did before i plastidipped them.

Hey guys, so I just plastidipped my broken down Moab rims and I was just curious if anyone that has dipped rims without tires cleaned all the overspray from the inside of the rim?

I'm just wondering if I need to be concerned about any dried dip coming off and blocking the tire valve from the inside?

Also, would one can of dip do a couple coats on grill, or is more than one needed?

You can clean up the overspray with WD40. Just soak a rag and wipe it off. Might take a little elbow grease but it comes off. Just be careful to not get any on the part you want to keep. The WD40 will melt it.

When doing the wheels while still on the Jeep, what tape do you guys use for the lugs? Masking tape?

I do 4 coats on everything... The more coats the better. It took me a 3/4 full can and a full can to do my grill. So if you are planning on only 2 coats, 1 can should do it for you.

Dipped my door hinges today! I think it looks great with the Billet. I did it with the doors off and didn't worry about dipping the hinge pin-hole on the tub, which could be because of laziness, but I kind of like the way it looks...

I added the grill mesh to my dipped grill. What a great combo with the black grill.

Since these pics have been taken I have painted the cowling where the windshield wipers come out black from fender to fender. Everything else will be green, and the hood will have black sides with SAHARA in green block letters. I am also going to put a black graphic on the middle of the hood.

Im thinking on my new rig, to black out the windshield frame, and the area on the full doors above bottom of the glass up, so it would *look* like 1/2 doors. Any thoughts?

Just do it and see if you like it. All that it will really cost you is time and the cost of the material. I would let it sit for a day or two as it seams like it needs to cure. I have sprayed wheels and not like them initially and gone back the next day after being in the sun and they seemed to better.

I'll do a photoshop rendering first I guess to see if it's worth my time. Definitely going to do the grill the first day I get it.

I also thought about 'dipping the doors to make them look like half doors, but I didn't because I think my Jeep has about enough black on it for now.


If you do it, be sure to show us!

All right, what did I do wrong? Can I give a light sanding and do another coat or do I have to peel and do again?

It's hard to tell from the pic, what's wrong? You can't sand plastidip. Make sure you prep your base surface properly (soap and water followed by a quick wipe with alcohol). Do light coats at first, then you can go heavier as you go. Also make sure you wait 30 mins between coats.

Olsen is right, you can't sand plastidip.
It is hard to tell what's wrong, although the doors do look a little splotchy.
Did they come out looking sort of textured, or is the coverage just not uniform?

I sprayed my spare wheel on a hot day and the result was a textured look, not entirely unlike that spray-on hair stuff they sell on TV.
The plastidip was drying as it was being sprayed and it wouldn't lay down correctly.

I peeled it off and then sprayed all the wheels in a nice cool garage.
They look much better now.

Thanks guys. Wasn't sure if I could give it a very light sanding and then re-apply. I took that photo specifically at that angle to show the problem. I think the doors may have gotten dusty as I was doing some other work in the garage in between coats.

You can't sand plasti dip, but you can smooth it out still. If you look on you tube you can se some examples of repairs. Both DipYourCar and Iamthepuzzleman show you how to repair rough or torn spots. Hint use xylene to remelt the dip to smooth it out and then spray a new coat over that. The problem on doing doors and other large areas with a rattle can is that the can sometimes spits and gives you texture. I tried holding the can far away to texture the whole thing, which worked until I got mud in the texture which was almost impossible to clean off.
