Plasti-dip FULL TRUCK DIP THREAD

This hasn't been made yet so I figured I'd start it. I know there's a thread with people doing little things like emblems and stuff but if you have done a full dip on your truck post it up.

EDIT

The little bit of weight the plasti-dip will add will not impact fuel economy enough to notice. It'd be about the equivalent of having an extra passenger at best. You might be thinking of the guys who Line-X'd their vehicles. That stuff is a lot thicker.

I just peeled the dip off of one rim, it weighed a whole idk... half an ounce? I could crush it with my hand into a ping pong sized ball.

The clearcoat on the roof is starting to fail, so I'm looking to seal it up. I'm lucky that with care, my clear coat has lasted this long. I see tons of black first gens that look like sh*t due to the failing clear coat.

I think it came out great, looks nice and smooth. I have been toying around with the idea of doing my rims. I was going to do it this past weekend but ended up in hospital and with no release date in sight not sure when I will be able to do it. Any advice on how to do it ? I will be using rTtle cans and I am no expert at that.
Thanks!

Just do lots of thin coats for the rims. Hope you feel better soon!

Looks like you need to touch up the rims a wee bit

I actually need to hit them with goo gone to get the rest of it off. I peeled most of it but it was too thin in some areas to get a good peel.

Damn that looks clean. Did you add thinner? If so what was you ratio thinner/dip? Is the dip surface pretty smooth?

I assume you used a electric painters gun?

I think the truck looks awesome. How many gallons did it take? I'm guessing that stuff is no more than 10lbs per gallon. (a bit heavier than water)

Yes a Wagner gun, no thinner. I think gallons from DYC are pre thinned now. The surface came out fairly smooth, I need to wash it to get a lot of the overspray off and it will look better.

The shipping weight was 32lbs for four gallons. I'm sure the total weight added was more like 20-25.
