This is not paint. It doesn't really matter what you spray or do not spray... you peel off whatever you don't want to be covered by the stuff. It seems like it is impossible for people to realize this fact about plasti dip. It comes off easliy, and yet it is as permanant or temporary as you want it to be. It really is some pretty awesome stuff if you ask me. I was a bit skeptical in the beginning, but I am a big fan now.

Seriously... People need to google, YouTube, and read this forum first. What you said summed it up. It's permanent or temporary, it peels off and is fairy easy to apply. It's a great product.

What?!? There's a new plasti-dip thread! I started the original one and haven't been on NASIOC in a year or so. WTF guys. That was my claim to internet fame.

Tireshine was the key to getting them to peel off the tire so well.


Best picture i could do at 12:30a.m.



They really set my car off with how vibrant the white was, i just hope it cleans off easily. Best $25 spent so far
I love that. It looks so Rally! Nice work. I have always loved white and bright colors on wheels.

Last time I checked, a $35k destroyer did not equal a 98 Civic DX. But that's just me.

By the way, you guys are dicks. Now that I've spent 2 hours in here now I have to plastidip my car, dammit! Quick question for you plastdip experts...I have 2 styles I'm aiming for. I either want to go with the orange "special edition" color with black wheels, or a light blue (more laguna seca, less WRB) with possible goldies. Anyone know what color on the plastidip spectrum on their website resembles these 2 options the closest? Thanks!

Note: I painted my wheels, so I can keep the gold or revert to something else fairly easy, no plastidip yet.

Koi Orange or blaze blue with white and/or yellow tint added. Can't wait for the results!

I am just about to do my winter wheels orange. Did you use white under the orange, or just orange there? I am willing to bet that orange alone would be fine if you use enough of it (and your wheels are not black to begin with)...

So I decided to peel the red off my white wrx only to discover that my car is now stained pink. I've tried everything that I could think of to get it off, including the dip remover from dip your car.Has anyone ever herd of anything like this happening? Anyone got any ideas as to how I could get it off? This sucks bad...

Probably could've seen that coming if you left that color on that type of paint for a prolonged period of time. I'm sure there's ways to buff it out, but others would need to tell you why.

...or you could, you know....just plasti dip it another color .

It has happened before. And it is fixable.....

I think they used a clay bar, I have used the mothers clay bar to remove staining from tree sap that looked like blood and nothing else would remove it. I would try that first

It will come off, I seen it mentioned several times on the DYC forums, they should say put a grey base down when ever dipping a white car.

You should be absolutely fine. Just make sure u clean the car properly and use pre dip or other suitable cleaner. I would get a grey as base as it is cheaper than the orange.

Good to know that it will eventually come off. It's scary when you hit something with a clay bar and its still there :/

Looking into the Electric Lime Green for my obp STi. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was thinking of a gal of black to lay down as a base on the cf first (I have lots of exposed CF) then maybe 3 gals of the green all over.

Before - Bronze:

After - Plasti-Dip Black:

4g is a good amount, you don't need 3 green though if you wanna save a little bit of money you can go with 2 green and 2 base. I always recommend gun metal grey as a base instead of any other color as it has very little effect on the top color. But the lime green is supposed to have great coverage so the base color won't matter, just don't use white as a base as the coverage is not great.

If you were buying from me i would recommend 2g grey and 2g lime green to you as a cost saver.
