How many cans did you use? Plasti dip

How many plasti dip cans did you use to do all four wheels and all emblems ? Number of coats would be helpful

Re: How many cans did you use? Plasti dip

I bought 4 cans when I did mine. I think I used about 3 to do 3 coats on my wheels, and 2 coats on the emblems.

Same here 4 cans will do it, buy 5 to be sure. 3 coats is all you'll need. Heads up remember to take the tape off wet.

There is also a great "How To" just do a search for Plsti-dip and you will find it.

Re: How many cans did you use? Plasti dip

x2 on the "take off tape while wet'. I was killing myself all weekend spraying the pillars and using an exacto knife once dry to separate the tape from the dip. what a waste, exercise in frustration

Re: How many cans did you use? Plasti dip

I didn't even use two. Although my wheels could use another coat or two on some lighter spots. I would buy 3 just to be safe.
