How does it work on the flares since they're very flexible?? Does it last?

What about 'Mr Clean Magic Eraser', has anyone tried it on the fender flares? Bedliner I sure would work but Magic Eraser would be so simple.

I've been using Mothers Back to Black for a little while, but it only last for a couple months. I just tried that as seen on TV stuff, Wipe New. It says it last for years, and most of the reviews I read were pretty good. I guess we'll see lol.

Let us know.

I bet they mean the wipe new BOTTLE will last for years (not the like new appearance) because after you use it once you'll never touch the bottle again for years until you finally dump it out!!

Plastidiping is good for static parts only, rims will not last long and will need constant repairs on plastidip. I took it off eventually, waste of lots of time ...

Curious, why won't it last on the rims? Seems like the rims are the most common part to Plasti Dip. Nobody's complaining. I haven't tried YET but if its of waist of time I would like to know.

If you do the entire rim, you won't have a problem. I see people taping off certain areas and leaving spots where there is rim then dip. Eventually, that edge is going to start peeling. If you coat the whole rim, up to the tire, it should last a long time. The only way it won't last is if you're off-roading and abusing the wheels, but in that case, I'd rather have the dip on so you can peel it off and reapply instead of having to paint the rims.

Is there any difference between the Camo Black Plasti Dip colour and the regular Black Plasti Dip?

Ive prepped everything for tomorrow, would it be bad to do one coat in the morning before work? Then follow up after? Or should it all be done in the one sitting.

The first coat should be very light, so you're better off waiting to do everything at once.

I'd do it all at once, even if only from a dust/cleanliness standpoint.

There some you tube videos from iamthepuzzleman and dipyourcar on repairs. If you take a little xylene on your finger and smooth it out like sanding then reprint over it you should be good. Watch those videos first.

Several reasons, first it is rotating part and gets into dirt and stones more than any other part. Second reason lug nuts, when you or mechanic will screw them in out they will damage plastidip, that would be start point of soon complete damage. Same with mounting new tires, they will scratch rim and it will strip plastidip. That is what happen to me and I took it away. You could fix it, but to me it is waste of time.

Painting wheels is much better solution, plastidip-ing initially designed to protect wires as tape but not for rims However it might be good for some parts which is static and don't move on car.

I intend to plasti dip my wheels(already did spare) because I want the ability to return my jeep to its original look in case I intend to sell it and get a new one someday. If I didn't care about that I would paint them. Some people like to plasti dip to see if they like the look before they paint. just sayin.

did you do the front part of the fenders. i know that area takes a beating as well as the front grill

wha's up! so i Plasti Dipped the rims, runner boards, and fenders on my 2000 TJ and it all turned out pretty tight. very pleased. of course, i am fearful of the fenders being scratched up and eventually to peeling based on some other posts i have read, but for now everything looks awesome. next up is the hood (inspiration thanks to MickeYJ). let me know what you think!

Did my wheels today. Took them off - 2 at a time - and used the tapping method. After a little (tiny, tiny bit) came off when I peeled the tape when I did the spare, I used a util knife to cut along the rim for the remaining 4 and didn't have any problems. Did 4 coats and used about 4 cans. I think I have spray-paint-can-carpal-tunnel now. Ouch.

Very happy with how they turned out.

Plasti Dip 07-13 JK 17in wheels

Anybody have a link to a thread or post that has a good writeup on how to plasti-dip 07-13 JK 17in wheels WITHOUT taking the tires off. I saw someone do the 16in steelies by stuffing newspaper. But I am curious to see the start to finish on my exact wheels. I don't feel comfortable taking them off myself to do this. Thanks in advance guys. Cheers!

I did mine, stuffed in behind the wheels with plastic shopping bags, it took 3 per tire. I didn't mask the tire itself but I would recommend doing it as it can be a pain to peel off after.

Masking the tire just takes more time. If you put thick enough coat on, including the edges of the wheel so it gets on the tire nice and thick, it peels off quite easily once you get it started. I picked at mine with a tiny screwdriver. Once I got a little piece up, it all peeled off perfectly.

NSDR, youtube or dip your car should have plenty of videos. If you wanna keep your lugs chrome, make sure you mask them off.

Yeah I'm gonna give it a whirl. I've been nervous about trying it. But it seems like it's really hard to totally screw up considering it peels off if you mess up. Thank you.

Yeah I looked at some video's yesterday. Any recommendations on what to use to clean the wheels with first? I know a good alcohol wipe down after you clean them is a recommended. But what should I use for initial clean?
