Seems like lots of people are using it now. Anybody tried it on their cars here?? If you are wondering where to go it, I ordered it at $13 a can from piston ring (cheapest i've found without driving to grand forks). Planing on doing my rims in this. Will take some pics when they are done.

Colours they have in canada are black, white, and red i believe.

      Yah, just changing up the look. I like the pink, but just going for a more "race" look. Its fully reversible as plastidip claims to come off in sheets when you want it to.

      Just gonna clean the rims really good with rubbing alcohol.

        Shouldnt be any need to sand. This guy did his whole Audi in it...



        Also to help you out with the rims, a little tutorial. Glad to see someone else using the index card idea to ;)

          ^thanks. I've been watching some vids on it. Seems like the biggest mistake people make is that they put too heavy of coats on at a time. esp the first and second coats.

            No problem. Ive done plenty of auto-body work in a shop before. And plus its pretty much common sense that several light coats are better than a couple heavy coats. Sure it takes longer (waiting 15mins or so between each coat for most spray jobs), but the end results are worth it, especially if you've prepped the item properly also.
            Good luck and post up a DIY in the DIY section. I know a few other people are curious of this product.

              hey  i have done lots of trim on my Audi with it and its great easy to work with, looks great and very much revercible ,but for the rims it might not be as durable and last as long ,would love to see how it turn out though .

                Would you be able to do this on say, rear emblems?
                And would it be possible to peel away the over spray easily?

                        Looks like it simply peels off.

                          Plasti-dip just peels off. If you plasti-dip the whole car, the seams between body parts (IE Trunk and tail lights) is enough to tear it. Just lift a piece, and slowly pull it off. Plasti-dips honestly a blessing, and is a really good idea for almost anything.

                            I was planning on spraying the car with white plastidip in the beginning of May.  lol.  I've done paint before and the worst part to work with is the clear coat.  I have some severe orange peel on the saab that I'm slowly sanding down.  lol.

                              there is no need for sanding maybe if there are super rough sports ,and also i dont think there is a clear coat its just appears as a flat colour

                                I'm just curious how you'd clean the wheels when they get dirty. Won't the pressure washer just complete destroy the plastic dip off the wheels?

                                      That's exactly what I'm doing. People say that Homehardware sells this stuff and piston ring? What other stores in Winnipeg sells this stuff?

                                      EDIT: Also, is it 100% neccessary to unmount the wheels to do this? What if i just cover the brakepads and tires while it's mounted on the wheel.

                                        Canadian Tire in Selkirk sells them. We should trip out to Selkirk as a group and grab some cans!
                                        Just make sure everything you're going to plasti dip is CLEAN. Clean it, degrease it, go to the 9's.
