That it will not last/easy to remove is a feature, not a bug. Doing it "right" would mean irreversible color change - that's not what a lot of Plasti-Dip users want. Also inexpensive is not cheap. I think a lot of the examples look great, not cheap. If Plasti-Dip could only be done at a special installer for thousands of bucks, your opinion would change - that sucks.

First attempt at plasti dipping. Wheels done with 5 coats of original black and four coats of the copper metalizer. Also did the grill and front emblem in just standard black.

Guess I need to update my sig. It's actually DGM, but thank you nonetheless. Was going to try the new classic gold metallic dip, but after searching I didn't see too many copper wheels done on a grey car.

You did a much better job than me on getting good coverage on the sides of the spokes. Any tips/tricks you care to share?

Did my rocker panels today, I haven't seen anyone do those so I thought I'd share if some else was wondering what it might look like.

Looks good. I did that on my wife's Camry, but I also did the front & rear lip (they have been scraped by her & her dad on a ton of stuff).

I believe plasti dip is good up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

I dipped the shorty exhaust and oil/clutch cover on my street bike. Exhaust, the dip faded started whitening but was fine on the cover. My bike even spit flames daily without catching on fire

Probably one of the dumbest applications of a new and flammable product but, I had no issues for the about 4 months I had it done! I wouldn't recommend doing it because of the potential dangers so take it or leave it.

It does give it the illusion of being higher off the ground, good call on the xv similarity.

Looks nice man. What's the process? I know obviously spray gun on. But in between doors. Windows and stuff. Do you have to cut the dip and wrap it around the corners of the doors so it doesn't peel so easy?
