Plasti-Dip; greatest invention since duck tape

I just plati-dipped the x-drive logo on my 328xi e90 lci and it was the easiest mod ive done on the car to date. If you mess up, no worries, the stuff peals right off. It looked so good that my dad had me blackout all of the V emblems on his CTS V.

I would highly recommend this stuff to anyone

happy dipping (no, not skoal)

I assumed everyone knew about this stuff already. Did an X5's grilles with it about a year ago and they're still holding up great.

it should, its essentially a spray on rubber so it bends and stretches rather than cracking.

$20.00??? Ouch, it's like $5.00 a can at Home Depot. It works well you just have to be patient between coats.

Thread is 6 months old haha.

Ya I like them, especially for the cost. Will keep this setup until after this winter then I'll pick up wheels and lower her.

Couple more shots after front/rear bumper, trunk and DEPO tails.

It's an Amuse style replica.

Just bought some red plastidip to re-do the rims for the hell of it. Haven't gotten up the nerve to use it yet though.

So how do you wash the inevitable brake dust off he wheels without ruining the plastidip? Does wheel cleaner (Sonax) hurt the stuff?
