|dukedallas||My hinges have lasted 2 years with plasti-dip, its been a rough winter in the northeast, I will definately have to redo my hinges this spring. It takes about an hour to tape off properly and get a few good coats on again. I actually am shocked they lasted this long.|

Annyone with pictures??
Anyone have any pictures of how they did graphics? Only thing I can think of how to do the JEEP rocker panel type graphic is to cut out some cardboard or maybe cardstock letters and tape underneath them so I can pull up between each coat... I'll just do the newspaper and tape for the upper line to keep the PD to just the bottom 1/4.

Just be gentle, and be careful where you start to pull the making away.
That's how I did my silly war-paint stripes on the MR2.
The smaller the pattern the harder it will be to do, but I don't think the Jeep logo would be too small.

|billybedford||I am planning to do a reverse graphic style of an arrow inside of black plasti dip stripe along my doors. was going to create a cardboard template to remove immediately after each spray, then realign to tape reference points each time. that way I don't have to worry about tape removal messing up edges, but I'm not sure if I will like the edge this would create. was also thinking of afterward adding like a 1 inch strip in top and bottom using regular tape off method, to create a smooth edge after using stencil method.|

I can't do it anymore!!!!
Ok so I started off reading every post in this thread.... After about 55 pages I started going every other page. By pg 70 I said screw it and skipped to the last page. This stuff looks amazing and I'm ready to try something but wanted to try and get some input from all you dippers first....
I saw back in the 5?th page somewhere that someone had created their own graphics using Plasti-Dip. I was wondering how they did the stenciling and what the specific steps for this were versus regular use(from this thread I'm wondering if there is such a thing..).
I'm thinking of doing the bottom 1/4 of my full doors and trying to do a reverse stencil of JEEP(so the original paint is the letters, surrounded by the Plasti-Dip) near the bottom. Has anyone tried the reverse graphic style???
Thanks in advance for any help

|NFRs2000NYC||If you guys are going to paint the entire jeep, I'd go with a completely custom color. I wouldn't want it to look like a factory color slightly modified or something. A cool camel color (think a blend between crush and dune) would be dope.|

|michiganhunter||How hard is this stuff to get clean? If ya take your jeep down some dirt roads and mud gets everywhere does it wash off at the car wash with the high pressure?|

I don't have personal experience with the camo tan, but I'm interested in it.
Because of that, I ran across this on another site (The Jeep was originally black):

I'm thinking of dipping my entire JK in either camo green or camo tan. I've seen plenty of pics of camo green dipped jeeps, but only one of someone who dipped their jeep the camo tan.
I have two questions:
1. I'm curious if anyone has experience with the camo tan and how close it is to Sahara tan?
2. Has anyone dipped one of the new, textured, hard tops? If so, how do the look and hold up?

I can see how that stuff would protect your paint but where would you put it? I saw the guy who plasti dipped his whole jeep and as cool as that was, I don't think that's for me.

Dammit! I hate you all. Been laid up in bed for a few days and ended up reading this damn thread pretty much all the way through and now I don't have any choice but to do my rims.
I have a few questions since I couldn't find a real clear answer. The general consensus says you don't really have to mask out the rims and that the dip comes off the tires relatively easy. Won't it pull off the rim when I pull it off the tire? Do I need to run a blade around the rim to separate the dip that's on the rim from the tires?
Oh yeah, just in case I didn't say it before, damn you all and this thread. I get carried away with stuff like this and because of you my house will end up being plasi dipped, along with the shrubbery and the cat.

We intended to just spray them on and then peel them off, but they came out pretty good, so we left them on. LOL!

Pretty much dipped every easily removable piece of my front end, plus the door handles and wiper arms. Really want to do stripes next

My job is finished! I ended up getting 31" duratracs on, so they look a lot nicer now. But I was unable to take a good picture as the rims are trashed(live on a dirt road). However, I was surprised how well the plastidip held up to them putting new tires on the rims. I only got bare spots where my old weights used to be, and some scuff around the edges. Which the thicker tire covers anyway. Will touch then up come spring, but for now they look a whole heck of a lot better than stock.

Hailed Razz, thanks for sharing.
This goes out to everyone, how durable is the Plasti-Dip to tire cleaners / Armour All, etc? My luck it will eat the Plasti-Dip.

Have been really wanting to plasti dip my weathered wheels. But due to only weekends off, and very little free time even then, i had to do them one at a time daily. Using my spare as a filler while one is off for dipping. This project has been held up for a few weeks due to a leaky valve in my spare, miss-matched lug nuts that i wanted to replace with all 3/4th, and finally a completely stuck lug that i had to drill out. This is the naughty little bugger right here.
Finally i got around to removing, cleaning, and dipping last night. Realizing brake cleaner wasn't the best choice in removing the brake dust. It trashed the finish on one of my rims.
Gonna' try rubbing alcohol next time. Luckily, i don't plan on going back to stock anytime soon. And if i do, i'll be re-painting them.
The first one i dipped completely dry except for a few touch-up spots.
That bubbling in the bottom-right corner i cut out and re-dipped. Boy i'm beginning to love this stuff. I mounted it and took off the next one in the complete dark, so no picture of it mounded yet.
The second one drying. I began realizing more about how this stuff lays the second time around. I focused around the nooks and crannies making sure i got everywhere, and the rest of it was mostly finished to to over-spray. I try to do multiple light coats, but it's difficult with the canyon wheels as they have so many curves that you have to spray into. Both times I've ended up doing one heavy coat.
Will post before and after pictures once she's all done. Unfortunately, not all shiny due to the salt on the road

Thought u plasti dippers may like this. Yellow is plasti dip. Black is bed liner. Been this way for about 2 months holding up well. Sprayed in a paint booth with hplv gun. 15-20 coats. Thin, thin coats.
The oil spots are not mine.

|gcb3||Might be a dumb question but do you have to spray the inside of the wheel? Meaning, is it noticeable if you don't?|
