**The PLASTI-DIP Thread**

Seems to be the hot new trend. Some people just do there wheels, some people do there entire car !

Lets make this thread entirely on Plastdipped xB's. Post PICS, ask questions, and share your Plastidip expiriences.

My first question is.....

Does anyone know if Plasti Dip helps protect your vehicle in winter months from salty roads and nasty weather, or will it trap more of the stuff you dont want underneath?

I PlastiDip'd my wheels for the winter and I can say it does infact protect the wheels from road salt. I plan on dipping the whole car two tone in a month when it warms up

Re: **The PLASTI-DIP Thread**

A gent in my local club is doing his whole car for Sanitarium.
I'm not sure if he's on the forum, but I'll get pleanty of photos, and ask all the right questions about his process.

I'd also like to take this moment to point out what does not work for Plastidip, and that is using sand as a texture on your hood.
If you'd like to find out more, visit my how-not-to-do thread hijack here.: https://www.clubxb.com/forums/showthr...t=46209&page=4

Re: **The PLASTI-DIP Thread**

It does however work well on interior pieces, especially without sand.

Pressure washer worked great for me... even with the added hardness of caked on sand between layers of plastidip.

Re: **The PLASTI-DIP Thread**

Although plastidip is a great way to get an idea of a new look, do it temporarily, or even cheaply, it is an absolute ***** to get out of tight spaces.

I sprayed my OEM grill and spent 2 weeks getting it out of every crevice after it had been on for 2 years.

Good to know about the brakes. I just want to make them not look like rust especially with my new rims coming.
