Anybody have good experience with plastic dip and willing to lend a hand? I would like to do my rear valence and would like a hand from someone that has some experience
What he said and clean the tip of the spray can after each coat, they clogs easily.If you want a nice smooth finish do a few heavy coats! Not a lot of light coats.
Hold it about 8 inches away and lay it on. The paint is self leveling which is nice. Little bubbles and runs usually flatten on their own.
I also found that the paint comes out better when the can is warm. When it's cold it seems to shoot out large clumps of it.
Figured I would share a few things with you. I've done a fair set of wheels and bumpers.

I would love your help! Would give me an opportunity to check out your car I told a few friends about.The easiest way to avoid clumping is to preheat the can actually. Had no issues plastidipping a rubber lip spoiler, I can help you on a weekend if you're not confident in doing it. All you need is rubbing alcohol, masking paper, masking tape, good scalpel and of course the can.
Live in LA as well...about 5 minutes from 90210...let me know when you guys plan on getting together and we can have a plasti-dip party! WOO! :banana 1:I'm in Pasadena, but living in an apartment. I'd probably have to come to you to help out, spraying the rear bumper on a parallel parked car on the sidewalk is asking for trouble. :tongue:
Btw the safe way to heat the can would be a tub of hot water lol. Hair dryers and heat guns are just too much.
