Does anyone know how this stuff sticks on bare aluminum? I have another "project" that I am working on where the whole body is aluminum and I want to protect it from the elements. I thought about having it wrapped. A lot of large, flat surfaces....

If you go watch the videos on YouTube, the owner of dipyourcar does all of his new product testing on bare aluminum panels. Looks to stick really well.

And here we are a year later....

My original Fiero bit the dust frame-wise...

The replacement, a white and silver 86GT has just become my new Plasti Dip guinea pig....

Looking good! I remember seeing your car at Indy. I really like the two-tone you did.

I plan on dipping my Fiero later this summer. I have a few spots where the paints chipped away (around the sunroof) so I'll need to fill those in before hand. If you go to the dipyourcar website they offer a kit with an electric sprayer, right around $300 last I checked. Should make for a nice and inexpensive finish.

I have to admit, when I saw the thread title I thought, Plasti Dip on a car? That's going to look like crap". Holy awesome on a stick! Those pics look great! I have to say I'm a believer now. Very nice work guys!!!!

Maybe you can order it from Home Depot.com ? I know shipping may offset savings.

Where are you from in Canada? Go on kijiji and people usually sell cans on there for much cheaper. Regular retail price here is stupid as you mentioned.

Ive used plasti dip to ship painted parts such as fenders/ and bumpers. We all know how UPS and FedEx handle boxes. Ive recieved painted pieces with hash marks from the box or packing contents. Shooting them gives that extra layer of protection. or cheap insurance and a happy buyer on the other end after he peels it off and finds his purchase in perfect condition.

Synthesis, did you just apply your plasti-dip on those panels with the rattle can?

When I did the back end of my Corvette, I noticed that on large surfaces, the plasti-dip can look "streaky" with the rattle can. I'm thinking a better gun to spray it would solve that issue though.

The guy who owns a Mustang shop next door to me sells all colors of rattle cans and gallon cans of it. He does a few complete cars a month. I think he uses a Wagner Power Painter. Go to Gearhead.com (I think thats his website). He did a brand new orange Camaro in flat black and it looked pretty good. Its great for protecting chrome or polished wheels for the winter. I just spray on the clear, take it back off when it gets nice.

Sprayed mine with a dipyourcar.com kit a year ago next month. Still looks surprisingly good.. might peel off and change color schemes this year. They factory support pearls and metallics now, I had to roll my own.

Ooh, Plasti-Dip has metallic colors now. I bet a 2-tone black and aluminum would look nice.
