    No sanding required, plastidip is a removable coating. Wash the car and wipe down with a prep solvent, mask all the trim, windows, wheels, etc. and spray. It's pretty easy Thanks! I made the hood infill panels by hand out of fiberglass, took me 2 attempts to get it right. I've never done...

    Yep, I do it in my garage. I use pro-line dip and spray it with an air compressor and paint gun.
  4. Holden front end conversion question

    Appearance / Detailing
    The hood comes down over the grille as you can see, it doesn't stick out past the bumper, it just covers the top of the grille. Basically the only thing I did was make a filler panel out of fiberglass to fill the front.

    I did my first 2 dips with the basic turbine sprayer kit, they came out better than I expected honestly. There is a bit of texture, orange peel like, but it's less noticeable with a satin or matte finish. If you spray with a stage 3 or higher turbine you won't get any texturing. For this dip I...

  15. Plastidip experts - overspray problem

    Appearance / Detailing
    Are you using regular PDS or pro line? PDS is not meant to spray with HVLP, even with a big tip you are going to get speckling everywhere, you can try thinning it with xylene or naphtha and lay it on wet.

    They fit pretty well, one of mine is a little warped i think. They just clip in where the OEM scoops do, there's 3 other tabs that would clip into the hood, but we don't have the holes for them obviously, i just used some 3M trim tape to stick them down, seems to hold up well.

    If done right, it will hold up as long as you maintain it. There's wash and detailing products specifically made for dip that will help it last. The only downside to dip is that it's not solvent resistant, if you were to spill gas on it, it would stain or melt it. I've never had an issue with my...
