Re: How many cans did you use? Plasti dip

I did my just did my rims, badges, and grill on my 05 Grand

Rims - 4 cans 4 or 5 coats
Front and Rear Badges - 1 can 4 or 5 coats
Grill - 1 Can like 6 coats (Had a can left over so went a little crazy plus I missed a lot on the sides of the fins of the center pieces the first couple coats.)

I noticed that when I did mine the cold weather affected the spray and made it a little bubbly or have a textured look. I would leave the can inside somewhere in between coats. I let the coats dry about 15-30 mins each one. I sprayed the rims while they were still on and used index cards in between the rims and tire to help with over spray. I'll post the timelapse video I made too.

The badges were done while they were still on the Jeep just tapped a tight box around them, and then peeled the tape and plasti off the paint. No problems came off really easy.

Took the grill off to spray it inside (which is when I noticed the can sprayed a lot better being warm) by the way it was the easiest grill removal ever, just 6 pins.

Just wondering how its going to hold up over the long run.

Debating to do the "limited" chrome trim on the sides too and interior wood grain bezels.

Re: How many cans did you use? Plasti dip

Did you put anything blocking the brakes/calipers?

Nope, what ever overspray that got on the rotors came right off as expected, I did make sure to spray the caliper though.

I was all about taking the wheels off then spraying them but I feel it's completely unnecessary now. The only problem I had was the part of the rim next to the bead of the tire not getting covered because of the index cards. Also the can doesn't spray too well upside down to get the underside of the rim and in by the lugs. Just gotta pull up a bit on the last couple coats to rotate the tires a little.
