Talking Finally Plasti Dipped!!

Wekk I finally got around to doing the plasti-dip thing. Tell me what y'all think!! everything black on the jeep is plasti-dip!! The stuff is amazing, I couldn't believe how well it worked. Did the center of the hod, the grill, the rockers, the front and rear fenders the uppers on the doors, and a few other places. Like I said, all the black is plasti dipped.

You should fill the rear fender holes with body filler and coat over them. They look kinda awkward without flares

Thanks Guys... I plan on probably going back with stock flares pretty soon. The PO had the big Bushwacker Pocket flares on it and I didn't like the look at all after i installed the flatties up front.

Looks good, you could always go with the Bushwacker flat flares for the rear too. They'll match your front fenders better than OEM flares will IMO

Or you could do what i did to my stock flares. Cut them to make them flat. Theyll match your front flatties and be much cheaper than bushwacker or smitty rears. Heres a pic of mine, if interested let me know and ill let you know how to do it.
This ones before my new lift but a good pic of flare:

After lift but still flat flare

Like i said, if interested let me know. I think itd look great on your setup. Hopin to get me some flat tube fronts in the future

No, they are made by a company called MCE. Check out there youtube video demo of the flares, its pretty cool. As far as stock flares go for the rear, I don't have any right now to even cut up and check how I like the look, but if I decide to go that route I'll hit you up for sure @thegr8alex

I was thinking about the rear flatties too... Kinda pricey, but I agree it would prolly look a lot better.

So far so good at the car wash... I've hit it with a pressure washer pretty hard and no issues yet.....

I know they say to use Denatured Alcohol to prep the Wheels. What's the prep process for the body of the jeep besides a Clean jeep.

I've done the rims and flares on both of my jeeps and all I did was wash them real good. Make sure they are dried well. I put three coats on and they are holding strong.

Hey justin.bravo was curious how did you mount your winch box to the grill seems like a good idea if you do a lot of water crossing

Was actually mounted this way when I bought the jeep. I didn't realize it at the time, but the dude actually drilled two holes through the grill and secured it with bolts. Pisses me off because I thought it was U-bolted on.

Not good against sticks, trees, mud or a pressure washer? Doesn't sound useful on a jeep.

You can pressure wash dip as long as you've put a good solid amount of coats on. It'll do pretty well with pinstriping from general wheeling. At least it does down here in AZ. Just hit it with a protective wax after you let it dry and it'll stand up to most anything besides a flathead or a chisel. Plastidip is great stuff if you wanna change the look without damaging or permanently altering the actual vehicle

I did my fender flares with Plasti Dip. Not long after, I noticed a large chip. A little sand paper and touch up took about a minute and it came out perfect. I don't think it's very tough, but it touches up super easy.

Do not sand or use any abrasive on any surface that you may wish to return to original finish after you tire of the all black on black look. To apply the product on a painted surface simply clean that surface thoroughly with Dawn soap which will remove any wax. For additional cleaning especially on plastic surfaces isopropyl will be sufficient.

Looks sharp. Has it got any abuse other than the power washer yet?

Nice! I've done something similar on my rig, hood, trim, etc. I haven't had any issues with peeling, scratching or anything. I've hit some trails after the fact and had no issue. But if I did, like some of the others say, it's an easy fix...
