Cool Plasti-Dip Badges

I decided to Plasti-Dip my badges today. It started off like this...



When you look really close, you can see that they were starting to corrode a bit.




First Coat



Second Coat





Third Coat





Between the third and fourth coat, the temperature dropped about 20 degress and a fog rolled in the 4th coat looked a little more coarse when spraying it, but it still turned out fine. I only cleaned up the driver's side so I could still take some pictures, but I was FREEZING, so I didn't get the others cleaned up and therefore no pictures either. Here's the driver's side though






Hope you like it!

I should mention for anyone going to do this, I got a little splatter that the newspaper didn't stop. I just let it dry and then rubbed on it and it came right off.

Now this I like. Nice job. I might need to do this because I am not a real fan of chrome.

Looks helluva lot better than the chrome. Good work. I think you guys got stock in plasti-dip.

It's cheap. $6 a can at Home Depot or Lowes and I don't think I used half a can for what I did. It looks good. It's as easy as Rosey Palmer to use . If you don't like it (God forbid), you can peel it back off. It's still rugged enough to withstand washing (I've read that on other threads). The only disadvantage I can see is that there is that chance of it coming off.

Not to mention the gains. I'm pretty sure I got an extra 50 hp from this

looks good have a couple cans laying around might try it out.... Plasti-dip should last you awhile I have it on the garage cause the lady parked the car not all the way in and scratched the back it wasnt a big scratch but dont want it to happen again a can of plasti-dip and now no worries, its been on about 8 months no chips or peeling and the garage is opened at least 3 times a day.

For 6$!

Get me a case of that stuff. Seriously, I am thinking of a couple of ideas that
I may be able to try with it. Anybody know how it stands up to ambient heat
like in an engine bay if not a direct engine part?

All the can says temperature wise is not to store it above 120F. I would be a little worried about peeling at higher temperatures and probably just use a high temp paint. But it's cheap so it's worth a try
