Well my V coupe should get delivered Tuesday so I guess I have a fun small project to start with Thanks for the assistance gents!
Well Folks, I stand corrected and man enough to admit it.....After seeing Xaqtly's V, I decided to watch some vids and give it a shot. I sprayed my rear chrome bezel (above license plate) and the CTS emblem....It came out perfect - looking to do side chrome and front grills. The price to remove all pieces and paint was very expensive. Hope she holds.
^jeep guys use it and one of my buddies goes rock crawling and its all held up. This was 2 years ago.
So I would say it would take a lot for it to rip off, or start to rip off, on our cars. Also you have to do it right.
Here are some pics of my grilles and side vents which I also plastidipped. FWIW it's been almost a year now and the plastidip isn't even close to coming off on its own, i.e. peeling or whatever. It looks like it did when I first put it on, and it's been through a lot of car washes and high winds. Just make sure you do a minimum of 4 solid coats, let it dry and cure, and it'll last as long as you want it to.
Plasti Dip is great stuff. I've had no issues as far as peeling and the only part that I tried that didn't really look as good as the Dip Your Car YouTube videos was smoking out the Headlights and Taillights, so I removed it.
Just a tip though... You don't have to be so diligent with the taping off of parts you don't want Plasti Dipped. If there's a break in between, such as the front grill logo in the pictures above, it peels off very easily. The taping and Prep work takes far longer than the actual painting, so saving time like not over masking/taping will help.
Here's my Project...
Hey thinking about doing this for a while is it as easy to peel off if u don't like it as people say
I didn't do my V logo as mine is black, and I kept the center of the crest logo chrome with the V logo. Here's the crest blacked out. Do it right, and it will work anywhere.
Just did my V badges on my silver V. Looks great. From start to finish, took me 5 hours. Really let it dry before I started peeling it off.
It is. Peels right off. Overspray comes right off with a microfiber and a little pressure as you rub. Give it a go.Originally Posted by Jhouchdaddy
