If it's got black underneath would it darken up the color a bit, anyone think?

That lime green is nice and original but the white looks sick on the 04 sti. A lot of cars are doing white but it looks clean.

Base color makes no difference to new colors like lime green and koi orange. The coverage is too good. If u want to darken it u are going go have to use a tint. Black tint added to the green dip will bring down a bit in brightness.

I dipped my 2011 SWP STI wheels black yesterday.



You have massacred that wheel. Do all four look like that? Ouch. They need more then dip.

for the 2011+ guys, do you remove the clear bra panels before dipping? Curious as to whether the plastidip plays well with clear bra.

Only 2 coats? Should be minimum of 4 - especially for removal.

Do a 50% coat, 75% coat, then you can amp it up to some heavier coats. Only need about 10 minutes between coats. Just don't follow the directions on the can lol.

I did 5 or 6 coats on my wife's hood scoop, and 6 months later it peeled off in one sheet, practically.

Make sure they are soaking wet, have a bucket of water with you, otherwise they break apart.

Tip for people cleaning dipped cars, wheels etc, these are great for stubborn stains too and safe on dip
No such luck with the goof off. It worked for the door but the side skirts and the rear bumper are stained too bad. Going to have to get them re painted.

I've seen plasti dip ruin the clear coat on quite a few cars now. I left a comment on one of the DYC videos on their channel asking about that, they did not reply but I did get blocked from the channel within a few hours

I did talk to DYC. All they had to say was that I should of did a gun metal gray base coat first and that there was nothing they could do.

They delete and block all negative comments apparently. I'm still a big supporter of dip. They just suck by doing that stuff.

Default DYC does not make Plasti Dip

Remember that Dip Your Car is not the manufacturer of Plasti Dip. They have no affiliation with the product other than the fact that they promote it because the make a lot of money dipping cars for people.

Plasti Dip is a great product for many purposes for sure. I personally will probably never dip an entire body panel/car because of the *very few* horror stories I have seen. I just wouldn't take the risk. A vast majority of dipped cars come out clean and do not seem to have any adverse effect what-so-ever, but still... the risk is there. I will, however do rims a LOT and trim parts like grill, badging, and the like. I love it for that type of thing.

It just seems like a lot of people think DYC are responsible for everything that happens to anyone that uses Plasti Dip. They simply provide a service, and like the stuff a lot. Obviously, people should know about the risks. The thing that bothers me is that it seems like DYC tries to hide as much of the risk as they can. Not allowing a person to even discuss the negative side on their Youtube channel is pretty scary. I am curious if they have people sign a disclaimer/waiver before dipping a car. I know I would make people do that if I provided this service...

Nikko, you are right and wrong. DYC does not make plasti-dip but they are associated with Performix (the makers of plasti-dip) due to the sheer volume of sales DYC produces for them. DYC asks Performix for some new colors and they make 'em for DYC. DYC asks for product to be released in aresol cans and Performix makes it happen. Its like when Walmart told Coke-Cola they have to change the box or Walmart stops selling Coke... do you think for one second Coke exectuives even thought of saying no?

Back on point, you are right about people thinking DYC is responsible for what happens to the car once dipped. DYC has disclaimers all over about testing the product on your car BEFORE you dip it.

As for DYC deleting posts, I have only seen it happen a few times when somebody posts something that is complete and utter bull****.

All in all dipping a car is still pretty new and I think there is a lot of misinformation out there about longetivity and such. People say it can last about 3 years but I dont see it happening. I have had my WRX dipped since May (3 months) and have already redipped. This stuff is addicting, you will be looking for any reason to redip your car. Most people dont know how long it lasts because nobody can keep the same color on long enough to find out! lol
