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

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.

Will plastidip hold up on brake calipers?
No too hot. Use engine paint

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.
