Finally got my stuff apart and dipped and put back together, hopefully here is a before picture.. New to the picture adding thing.



And after, still have to put that little circle back in. The shift knob was half "chrome" also.

Not a subaru, or a real car, but I re did my son's jeep.

This is how it looked when I got it





and after dipping the body Blaze yellow with silver metalizer (the new color for winter wheels) and recoloring all the trim red and black. And changing the wheel color from yellow to pearl silver. This is the new fire rescue jeep...




All working headlight and flashing blue and read LEDs. just need a siren and becuase my son is still a little too young to use it, I am going to RC the thing

I wanted a fire truck, but the one I was looking to get is rare and they don't make them anymore, so I had to settle for this jeep, which is probably better anyway. it is fast and will awesome once i finish the RC side of things.

Has anyone had any experience plasti dipping over their already dipped wheels? I did blaze yellow and long story short I ****ed up haha. Doesn't look terrible but the yellow isn't solid. (the dark alloy shows through in some spots) I like the color but I will probably end up doing black once spring comes back around. So is it safe to spray over the plasti dip or am I better off peeling it?

I'd say peel it off and respray, you don't want to get a rock chip and then have other colors showing underneath just like you said the yellow wasn't solid unless you don't mind that

I'm kinda leaning towards that as well. I just hate that I spent the $70 and wasted all the time. Oh well, learning experience at least :/

if the yellow dip is smooth you can just leave it on, especially if you are going black as your next color. The coverage of black is very good and will cover blaze yellow very easily. Doesn't matter about the coverage of the yellow, so long as the yellow coat is smooth. Any bumps or texture will come through in the black.

As you already have a base of dip, the black dip will re-liquify the yellow dip and blend with it. So you don't have to do 5 coats of black, just 2/3 will cover the yellow fine.

Plus, rock chips won't just take off the black layer and leave the yellow showing, it'll just chip down to the bare metal or powder coat your wheels came with.

...but most likely down to bare metal.

<----Rattle cans his wheels and drives on gravel constantly.

Unless you did like 10 coats of each color or something lol.

Appreciate the info! I was hesitant about posting the question in fear of people just telling me to research it. Turns out there are good people after all

Anyone think if I sprayed my rims with matte white plasti dip there would be to much of color difference between my rims and body color? i thought maybe doing a coat of gloss or pearl might make it look better. (Satin white impreza) opinions?

It's been done and their is pics lurking in here somewhere. The colors are definitely different, I'd try a coat of pearlizer.

My car is one of them. I would definitely use pearlizer to try and get the rims to match the rest of the car. The white plastidip on it's own is too bright compared to the rest of the car. Whenever it warms up I plan on redoing my rims to try and get them to match the car as much as possible. Oh and do yourself a favor use gunmetal as a base coat and then spray the white dip.

Alright thanks for the info, I just checked out the picture of your car it still looks nice but i see what you mean. I'm planing to do my rims fairly soon so i'l post some picture when i'm done.

Just took the dip off my rims today and thought i might share a couple methods for removing it when you dont put on enough coats just to peel it up.

Goo-Gone Citrus spray works GREAT, by great i dont mean it easy but it is the best method i have found for removing

Link: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Goo-Gone-A...12-oz/23636895

Spray it and let it soak for an hour then you can either use towels - takes forever and your hands will hate you

OR

Spray the goo gone all over the rim and let it soak for an hour, then take a pressure washer to it and it should mostly come off, repeat this and then use a towel and more goo gone to get the small spots

Ok so i recently acquired a spare hood to replace mine ( millions of rock chips). after sanding and prepping, I decided to use plasti-dip it black. My problem... Is that i cannot seem to get an evenly applied coat. No matter how many coats i put on (7 coats now), i can't get rid of my spray "strokes". tried several methods of application after the standard 3-4 coats ( super heavy coat, tried a super light misting coat, tried touching up just the lines). Can't lose the lines!!! So frustrated! used plasti-dip many times and have never had results like this. Sprayed in my basement ~70. Someone please tell me there is a remedy... Besides peeling it all off, buying a spray gun and a gallon of dip and redo-ing the whole process!! :-/

I've seen videos of plasti-dip repair... He uses some sort of solvent... I was wondering maybe if i could just apply some kind of light solvent to the whole hood to even things out?
