The gold metalizer is more of a greenish hue...I would personally side with copper.

I seem to have upset you. Try to calm down.


The problem I have with note cards is that they blow easily in the wind and fall onto the wet paint. I think it might be due to the wheels/rubber edge where they contact is either too tight or not tight enough with my wheels. I tried wedging them in there but it wasnt working, i ended up taping as the dip never easily comes off the tire.

It comes off easy if you put something on the tire like armor all first. It won't stick well to it.

Super mad brah lol.

I've never heard of anyone struggling with 3x5 cards before. The trick is to stack them as you put them in.

So non-turbo car owners are douches with fake cars? I digress.
Some of us could have bought a turbo, but realize that getting to 60 faster than someone else is not the most important factor in buying a car.
Some of us are under 25 and can't justify the higher cost of the turboed variants (insurance, rebuilds, tuning etc).
Some of us appreciate the reliability of naturally aspirated engines.
Some of us plasti-dip our cars because they're our real cars.

That said, don't judge people by their possessions, for all you know, the person in that beat up 1987 Pinto next to you is a humble billionaire who knows that cars are the worst investment you can make. Not only are they a depreciating asset, but they are also more prone to complete loss since they're more exposed to danger (y'know, the turboed kids who think the highway is a racecourse)[woah, did I just make a generalization?].

The point here is, let's:
a) not assume that the car "we" drive is the only "real" car.
b) not call each other douchebags or attack our username choices.
c) agree that this product was not even made for cars, it was made for tools.
d) appreciate the fact that the material base makes it versatile for all the newly discovered applications!
e) leave this topic alone and get back on topic >>>>

I'll start.

Still no bueno outdoors. I think Index cards are only[correction, most] effective in a controlled wind atmosphere, stacked, taped together or unstacked.

Lol good speech.


Point is. If you can't find a reasonable calm area to spray, one might want to avoid the mod altogether.

If the wind is blowing the cards away, then you shouldn't be painting under those conditions. That means the wind is probably blowing junk onto your wheels, and your over spray is going everywhere. Get a cardboard box, cut the flaps off, and place the wheel inside. Then place the cards around the lip and spray away. If you're trying to paint them while they're still on the car, you're doing it wrong.

I keep trying to read this post but the combination of spray paint and wind in the same sentence bothers my brain too much.

I tried stacking the cards, taping the cards, but the slightest gust blew them off. Eight way, the armor all is a good suggestion, im assuming you meant armor all tire shine.

Loving the bronze on dgm so far. I need to get some nice bronze wheels.

Apparently you didn't even make it all the way through the first sentence. I was addressing another member, and his issues with painting outdoors. Some people are limited to how and where they can paint. I'm not the first to suggest using a box as a makeshift small-parts paint booth. Its an inexpensive (we are still talking about Plasti Dip right?) semi-solution to a problem.

If that's all that it takes to "bother your brain", whatever that means, then you aint seen nuthin yet. Welcome to Nasioc.

If there's wind, breeze, any type of movement in the air you should t be doing it there, period.

Don't use a makeshift paint box... Do it correctly.

And thanks for the welcome to nasoic.

Welcome to Earth.

"Do it correctly" when referring to using Plasti Dip on wheels? Nice.

The only way to completely control the air's movement is to use a paint booth. That's it. Otherwise, even when painting inside (for those of us who have that luxury) any small movement can cause airflow. This includes your HVAC kicking on, dog walking by, you getting your medication for your bothersome brain, whatever. I offered a better-than-nothing solution for those who don't have an indoor area, like myself, to "correctly" coat their wheels with tool handle rubberizer.

Thanks

How'd the line hold up when you peeled the tape off? I would think it wouldn't peel that nicely like that but it looks really good. I'm tempted to do this with black plasti dip once I get my front lip installed here soon to cover up a couple scratches on the bottom of the bumper. It looks really good on yours! Any tips for success on something like that?

I had a problem with a set of rims I was working on. I had black PD on it and it had been on there for a few months. I went to peel the PD off and some of it did not pell off. It stuck to the paint that was under the PD. A friend of mine told me to use brake cleaner. It kind of worked but ruined the paint that was under the PD. Anyone have this happen to them? How did you overcome this? I ask because I am going to be peeling off the blaze green off my rims and I dont want to ruin the paint.
