The light coats seem to work well for me. I have the consistency down. The issue I have now is peeling a little off when I remove the tape. Even though I take it off when wet. If I could remove the parts I was painting I think I would be all set.

Re: The official I suck at plasti-dipping club thread

I'd say to not be afraid to apply a little more pressure when cutting with the exacto knife. Looks like you're not quite cutting all the way through in spots. Also, are you moving the can back and forth? That may account for the "tiger stripe" effect you're getting. Try one continuous motion from start to finish without going back over any part.

Yes to both, I am moving the can back and forth and I am hesitant to put to much pressure with the knife. This information would have been useful yesterday! Where have you been? Just Kidding.

This has become how not to plasti-dip thread. Who knows when I am done I might just start a new thread The Idiots Guide to Pasti-Dipping.

It's a crappy pic but it looks good from a few feet away.



I will give it one more try but not for a few days. I need to take a break. I may however try the grill tonight.

Thanks.

Thats good to know. If I can touch up those areas I think I will be all set. I did my grill tonight and I think it came out well but I will wait to see on the light of day.
