Dip My Car

We've possessed our '68 for over a years and have enjoyed its paint fade, crack and also chip.
Some locations were to the metal and we wanted to do something about it prior to it obtained any kind of even worse - Dip My Car.

We found Plasti-Dip *. Plasti-Dip is immune to sun fading, winter months ice, cool, and salt. It is likewise a durable yet removable material that will certainly peel off when we determine to pay for an actual paint work.

* We selected plasti-dip since: IT'S NOT PERMANENT. I haven't painted a cars and truck prior to and really did not wish to test out doing a "actual paint job" on our CLASSIC. I recommend the end result (however short-term it may be) it's offering its function well: protecting the AUTOMOBILE while we determine if we will certainly choose silver in the future


Dip My Car


Step 1: PRO VEHICLE PACKAGE

We purchased a huge pro AUTOMOBILE package on dipyourcar.com

The package has the DYC DipSprayer ™ System, 4 Gallons of Rubber Dip Spray, tape, DipWasher ®, Decals, mixing stick, Dip Guard, Paint Stirrer and Microfiber Towels.

We used Plasti-dip color: Light weight aluminum for the base and also Silver Metalizer for the leading layer.

Plasti-dip is likewise offered in a spray can.

Step 2: SURFACE AREA PREPARATION

Due to the fact that our old paint wasn't standing up any longer we invested a great deal of time prepping our AUTOMOBILE to make certain an also surface.

Making use of an electrical orbital sander we fined sand the rough spots then covered them with a spray on vehicle guide that filled out small blemishes.

We additionally eliminated the emblems, lights and also reflectors from the body of the CAR.

Step 3: TAPE OR NOT?

Plasti-Dip can be easily peeled locations (such as fronts lights) after you've completed using the last layer ... However: prepping the area decreases the inconvenience of eliminating plasti-dip later.

Making use of painters tape and papers, cover windows and also areas that you do not intend to get plasti-dip on.

We covered the wheels with 40 gallon sized trash can.

Tip 4: WASH IT FIRST!

Before using the plasti-dip to the VEHICLE it SHOULD be clean.

Plasti-dip is an overlay that will certainly create a separate layer in addition to any kind of surface- including dust and also dirt ... so obtain the surface area REALLY CLEAN.

After cleaning up the area completely dry it with a fabric.

Tip 5: BEST PAINTING AREA?

Locate an area that is extremely ventilated and also from straight sunlight. We repainted the very first layer on outdoors in the color- it was not an optimal location- the tiniest amount of wind created a lot of overspray accumulation. The most effective area would certainly be an open garage.

Action 6: SPRAY ON THE PLASTI-DIP

Use a mask. It is handy if you have somebody that will follow you bring the paint turbine as you go. Repaint in sections as you function your method around the VEHICLE. COVER EVERY LITTLE THING! Even lay on the ground to get the hard to see locations along all-time low of the CAR!

The first layer is your bonding layer- It is crucial that this is a light dusting (50 -60% transparency). This will allow the rest of the layers to bond as well as adhere to the paint. Spray in a clean sweeping motion, seeing to it to hold the sprayer 6-- 8 inches far from the location. Allow plasti dip to completely dry 15-30 mins in between each layer.

We paintinged 6 layers of Aluminum plasti-dip as well as 3 layers of Silver Metalizer.

Action 7: REMOVE THE TAPE

After the last layer is applied, promptly get rid of any tape or paper from the CAR prior to plasti-dip dries.

Step 8: CURE IT!

Now the plasti-dip will certainly take 4 hours to totally treat. DON'T TOUCH IT. As well as at ALL expenses, prevent any substance that could create damages to the location.

Tip 9: ENDING UP TOUCHES

After it cured we put the symbols, and so on back on, changed our sill-plates, center caps, antenna as well as seat covers and also included the C-Stripe decal.

This is a big task. Take your time as well as do it well. It took 3 of us working with it every open possibility seven weeks to complete.
