Plasti Dip

9 posts in this topic

Thinking of using it on wheels, door handles, side view mirrors.

Anyone had experience with this stuff?

This is what a guy did to his Fiesta's interior with Plasti/Hydro dipping:

Looks like it works

Not a fan of the patterned effect though but each to their own

What about on the outside of the car is it durable to use on wheels?

Hellbunny plasti dipping and hydro dipping are 2 very different things entirely

Hydro dipping is when you float a sheet of print on water, activate it and dip parts into it. Its whats used for factory carbon fibre prints etc.

Plastidip is basically spray on rubber in a can.

But to answer the OP's question yes it is quite durable n also if you don't like the matt look you can spray on a glossifier after

A fellow member liam20 plastidipped his focus's alloys in matt black and it seems to have weathered really well

and if you do get bored of it, it is easy to remove cause you simply peal it off

I've gone for carbon. I've got a nice warm garage to do it in. What has been the most difficult piece to dip or what do you think will be. I think the top dash cover where the display is mounted. Maybe the dial surround. Any tips?
