Plasti Dip Letters On Car
Plasti Dip Letters On Car – Plastic spray paint any color you want, but we “black out” so buy matte black at a home improvement store
Note: kids, if the car you want to dip is your parent’s or not yours, ask permission. the dip is very easy to remove, but you will still need a permit.
Plasti Dip Letters On Car
Clean and dry the place where you will work. You can clean the entire car or be lazy and just clean the spot and around the 6 inch spot. Make sure the area is free of dirt and dead bugs, you don’t want fossils or bumps. After the said area is cleaned, wipe it with a lint-free cloth or let it air dry.
Plasti Dip’ing Bumper And Letters
I will show you two ways to seal the area. the first way is a picture with the mini cooper symbol instead of the cooper letters. the first method is more difficult, takes more time and does not turn out as beautiful. you might say “then why show me?”. I’m going to show you because people have a problem with directions and think they’re going to do it their way, I’m going to show you that’s not your way hahaha. taping around the symbol takes a lot of time and is not easy at all. after spraying you will need to pull the tape back while the style is slightly damp and this can ruin it. if you wait for it to dry, it will tear at the edges and give you horrible wrinkles. so I’ll move on to the second method.
The second method of preparation is to tape the box around the desired darkened area. plasti dip is easy to use because it peels right off if you don’t like it or just to remove excess. so when you tape the box around it, you want to leave an inch and a half for something to hold on to.
Make sure you cover the surroundings. I used cardboard, but most people use newsprint. tape the corners and edges. the plastic will come off easily….if there is enough of it to stick together. Thrown spray will be a little more difficult to clean, but can still be removed with a little rubbing.
I didn’t have pictures of me spraying the dip, that would have been difficult and would have ruined the process.
I Suck At Plasti Dip
Shake the can to mix the dip inside. spray to a distance of about 8 inches and spray in a sweeping motion, stopping after each stroke. you don’t want to sit in one place for too long because the dip will build up and run off. it will look bad, so just don’t. you will need 3 or 4 coats with 10-15 minutes of drying time between coats. the first coat will be light, you won’t make it completely black with this coat. you will only get about 50% coverage. the second layer will cover it all. make sure you hold the edges of the tape so it’s easy to remove later. the third and fourth layers will be at different angles, hitting the letters or sides of the characters. don’t forget to get a good sum along the tape again.
Don’t be intimidated by the excess. it will come out nice and easy if you follow my instructions and build up along the ribbon. pull the tape back and it should give you some corners to grab onto if the excess dip doesn’t just come off with the tape. don’t forget to gently pull the sheet and lift it up. more up than away. if dipping doesn’t give you an advantage when you remove the tape, you may need to let it dry more, or you may have been too poor around the edges. You should be ashamed. either way just roll it with your fingers and get the edge. be light by removing excess. a pair of tweezers and a piece of thin plastic will come in handy to get into tight spots. you can use a flat screw driver but you might scratch the car so i used plastic. you can scratch the plastic layer inside the letters until you have an edge to grab it with tweezers. pull carefully so you don’t mess up the edges of the letters or symbols and so you don’t have to tweezer a new spot if it breaks.
Easier if you have a lot of light and spray on thick color. I will spray the rims later. give it enough time to dry. if you like a glossier finish, dipping the plastic creates a shine that you can spray on afterwards. if you want a different color, you can find more colors online than you will find in a home improvement store. this project took me an hour total time for both parts.
The stripes were worn and faded, looking rather rough up close. when covering or adding stripes, it is very important to remove the tape WHILE THE LAST COAT IS WET. if you don’t, you’ll have to come up with a strip of tape or leave the edges taut. when covering, make sure you can see all of the old strip so you can be sure it is completely covered when the tape comes off.

First step, decide if you want to put something behind the grill to prevent it from getting into the plastic radiator, or just remove the grill and spray it without having to tape it off. I recommend removing the grill, however you risk breaking the clips, it’s up to you (you know your skill level). note – if you get into the plastic radiator your car may have cooling problems, also don’t try to clean it with your hands!!!!! I’ll say it again – don’t clean it with your hands, the metal on the radiator is razor sharp and you’ll have cute little cuts that hurt, no one wants to see you cry. when reinstalling the grill, make sure it is completely dry. I waited for the night, so I was sure.
Just like taping a box around it and you can clean off the excess. however, it’s important to make sure you get all the corners of the handle. Also (see image above) don’t forget to close the keyholes! you run the risk of plunging into the keyhole and making the lock faulty or problematic. so i folded the piece and stuck it in the hole until i finished spraying the last coat. I pulled the tape out while it was still wet so it wouldn’t pull up the edges. So over the weekend I decided to plastic dip all the lettering on my 3rd gen… and yes I know I missed the emblem that is today lol… Looking for honest thoughts.
It looks normal. View of fights with a yellow sticker. That being said, I would completely remove the decals before removing the sticker!
But yeah, I’d go with just black because red on your license plate makes everything look tacky, that and the stickers.

I think it looks good with red. I’m sick of seeing things go dark where I’m from. Everyone and their mom’s mother blacked out emblems, smoky tallits, black rims…it’s really unoriginal.
IMO I think it looks good. However, I would remove the yellow sticker. The black emblems on the black truck look good but are barely visible. That being said, I wouldn’t dip anything red unless it’s a black truck. Good work
Including decal, paint, chrome, faded black trim, rust, red lettering, etc., I can count over 10 different colors on the back of your 4runner. There’s just too much going on.

The better question is: DO YOU like it? I mean, it’s your 4Runner, you can paint every letter a rainbow of colors and it doesn’t matter what other people think.
