Something that's worked for me in the past is running a toothpick along the edge after every coat. Helps separate the dip from the tape.

That is a really good idea. Thanks

On a side note, I am getting better. It's not flawless but it's definitely the best I have done to date.





Thanks to all for the input.

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

I removed the tape after it dried, and did 5 coats and mine looks great. Did my rims too. As for the overspray, you don't really even need to tape it off. It literally comes right off the paint.



30 seconds of cleaning

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

I just tried my first experience with plasti-dip on my pillars. THAT WAS A FAIL. Ended up just vinyling them.

It came out good but it just wasn't clean enough around the edges for me even with all the tapping and cutting. I don't think I let it dry enough.

THe trick I found is alot of light coats and it will come out pretty uniform.

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

I went to the vinyl to. I have not given up hope for this little spray can just yet. For certain things I just think it is the best choice. Hopefully I will have pics tonight of my rear step if that works may try the front and rocker panels. Just for that added rich black look and it's almost winter so extra protection. If not next summer silver they go or rock rails. I need a 2nd job cause of this site.
