Plastidip goes on smooth and dries like a rubber coating. It has a rubbery satin finish that just looks really nice. No fish eyes, no orange peel, no runs... it's very easy to use.

Also, you can peel it off if you change your mind. No harm done, yet it is very durable, easy to clean and if it gets messed up it's easy to fix.

Plus, it's easy.
Some examples.
Plasti Dip Overspray? No Worries - YouTube
Plasti-Dip on my emblems - YouTube


FYI... we use this stuff in the R/C world a lot too. It works great for paint masking, black trim, water proofing electronic and more.

Some of my DIY R/C paint jobs. (I love my toys)
The Jeep and the yellow F250 are the same R/C with different bodies.

How hard is it to peel off? I want to do it on my grill but if I decide I don't like it in say 3 months will it peel off easy? Would it take tons of time to peel off?

I screwed up a wheel that had 4 coats on, once I got it started it peeled off real quick and left no residue. I had the wheel stripped clean in less than 10 minutes.

The original does come in a can that you can "dip" stuff in... lol

That first one is a 1/8th scale Redcat Avalanche (nitro), the second is a Tamiya DF02 (brush-less electric) heavily modified.
I also have a 1/10 Redcat Shockwave (nitro)... also heavily modified.


and a Kyosho Outrage that is being rebuilt.... stronger and faster!

lol, that happens a lot.

Why do you think all of mine are "modified"? Whenever a part breaks, replace it with a stronger version of the part, then the next weakest part will break... so on and so on.

The Avalanche is the only one that has been pretty much bullet proof. I broke one little piece, replaced it with aluminum and haven't broken anything since.

But as you can see, it's pretty well built. Very little plastic.

Yeah, I have two electrics. I tend to break them a lot. They have more plastic.
This is my Tamiya under the body. All the blue is the aluminum upgrades, that stuff doesn't break any more but I do still crack a chassis ever now and then. Good news is that they are cheap. lol

Ok I have an actual question about this stuff....i just put it on my spare the other day to test it out and see if I liked it before committing time on spraying all the others...I got lazy and didn't tape up the my tire and I got the overspray all over the tire....do I really have to peel the overspray off the tires? It's completely unnoticable...is there some kind of issue with it being on the tires? When I do the rest of the tires I'll probably protect the tire any way...just curious

^^^^^ Nah. I got overspray all over my tires too. I just left it on there. I wouldn't want it over the RWL but the black rubber spray on the black rubber tires is no biggee. However you really don't want to spray it on your RC tires.... but that's another thread .lol.

Sorry guys. I thought we were discussing the product Plasti-Dip and it's many uses. I just thought I would share some of it's other versatile applications, didn't mean for it to get so off track.
fdnc2774, you didn't have to be such a d-bag about it.

Back to Plasti-Dip and it's many uses in the Jeep related world...
You could Plasti-Dip your interior, you could Plasti-Dip your hood, you could Plasti-Dip your bumpers, doors, fenders or even your mirrors... although there are better products for some of that stuff.

This stuff is also GREAT for covering up God awful, ghetto fabulous chrome rims that could ruin an otherwise nice looking JK.

Overspray on the tires is not a big deal. If you are using black it is hardly noticeable. It does however peel off real easy, just make sure to run a sharp object around your rim so you dont peel the finish off the rims themselves.

Only problem would eventually be the weights used to balance the tires. The weights will probably mess up the dip if you add them or if you tried to remove them. Providing you painted over them.

No problem, just try to be a bit more tactful when trying to get a thread back on course dude. There's no need to resort to low blows like that right off the bat.
You JK drivers already have a bum rap... with your driving around with your nose up in the air not waving and all. lol

As for your rims, yeah, paint em. If you don't like it, peel it off.

Most tire shops won't even try to put weights on the outside of rims like those, some rims you can't. Most modern aluminum rims have the stick on weights on the inside. I have Cragar soft 8's and they put my weights on the inside too.

Oh God here we go....... there are 1000 other threads on why us JK drivers are the scum of the earth. Let's keep this about Plastidip. And all it's awesomeness. I'm thinking of doing my grill next. I love the way it looks on some of your Jeeps. The contrast is really mean looking.

And PS... MickeYJ if they aren't waving back at you... it's probably because their wives or GF's are sitting beside them, and they don't want to explain why they were waving at ' that girl in the Jeep' or get cuffed in the back of the head... or worse....
