This is my first post on any Jeep forum; just bought my 'Bright Silver Metallic 2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon' completely stock on 1/24/12 and I love it.
This is a pic heavy 'how to plastidip your JK door hinges and Jeep emblem' for anyone wanting to see/learn. (My second mod so far after the black Mopar gas cap.)
If you mess up; peel it off and start over.
If you don't like how it looks; peel it off.
If you decide you want to go back to stock; peel it off.
Step 1 - Clean the areas you are going to be plastidipping with soap and water. Then dry the areas, wipe it down with rubbing alcohol, and wait for it to dry. (No sanding or priming required.)
Step 2 - Tape off the areas you are going to be spraying.
Easy to peel off excess plastidip around the emblem:
Step 3 - Spray a thin coat of plastidip, so that you can still somewhat see some of the Jeep's paint underneath. Wait 5 minutes and spray again until you can't see anymore of the Jeep's paint. Then wait 15 minutes in between each coat after this.
Step 4 - Wait an hour for it to dry after the last coat.
Step 5 - Start peeling the tape off carefully.
Step 6 - Peel off the extra plastidip around the emblem. (And door hinges if you don't fully tape it off.)
Step 7 - Admire your finished project and take tons of pictures!
Don't mind the JK stickers; bought them before I knew anything about that group.
