Plasti-dipped the jeep today

well after a coworker got a large amout of industrial paint overspray on my jeep and many failed attempts to remove it i just sanded it off, decided instead of buffing it i would try out the plastidip. did a basecoat of gunmetal and then 2 gal of anthacite, i did the flares and rockers but not sure how long it will stay on there

he painted the roof of his race car outside with a primer gun and overspray went over most fo the cars there. it came off everything but my jeep, we got some special sponge thing bodys shops use for overspray and it just took the clearcoat off on mine, worked fine on everything else, not sure if jeep clear is crappy or just not as good as gm clear as all teh other cars were gm

I like it. I have always liked a matte finish.

there are thousands of cars plastidipped, theres a whole forum for it, and tons of colors to choose from including making your own custom colors.

i used more than needed only because i ordered the wrong color and its not returable so 1.5 gallons of gunmetal as a base and 2 gal of the anthracite. theres a couple messed up spots that hopefully wont peel but if they do i can just peel the entire panel and do it again

i have about $300 into it, but i got it when there was a 20% off sale. i bought the sprayer and that was over $100 also differnt colors are different prices. a full size truck would prob need 4 gallons to cover good, the thing with this stuff is if its to thin its hard to remove.

I think it's cool, I was thinking that a coat of glossifier on it would make the Anthracite pop more than the standard black or gun metal

i tried the plasti-dip i prepped and everything and the first time i washed i got bubbles and shreds in the plasti-dip is there a permanent solution? i only did the rear factory bumper to see how it would work. After it started peeling i went ahead and sanded it down, BTW its easier to take off if you peel not sand. I painted it again with plasti-dip but this time while it was wet i painted over it with Duplicolor Fusion Plastic Paint and thats seems to work.

I want to do a similar paint job but permanent any ideas or suggestions?

if it was hard to peel (like it kept breaking in little peices) it wasnet on thick enough. we peeled my friends '12 F250 in about 45 min the morning before he traded it in. and if the dip is in a hard to reach place they sell a spray that will take it off

as far as durability goes a single drop of water left on a part before its sprayed will make the entire peice peel. has to be super clean and completly dry.

A spray of WD and a wipe of a rag pulls light coats and even overspray off.

i did, and it did work but took me a hour just to do the end of the cowl (where you get a mirror dent) i didnt want to spend 200 hrs doing the entire jeep and after i tried that i tried a pad thats supposed to be made for removing overspray and it worked great on the boss's yukon but scratched the shit out of my clearcoat, im guessing the gm clear is better than jeeps. So after that it looked like i wet sanded the jeep.

This. I have gotten all sorts of paint and rusty metal (cutting and grinding and spray painting without covering everything up like I should) off my paint with a clay bar and some elbow grease. My whole hood and cowl was covered and I had it all off and baby smooth in 2 hours. I kinda need to do it again actually but still need to finish some cutting.

I see. seems like a fair trade in that case.

I did forget to mention in the other post, I like the look with the matte finish.
