hansvonaxion Posted July 13, 2012 Share Posted July 13, 2012 I know there's a few guys on here who've used plasti dip so I was hoping for some advice. Oh, by the way it's $7 a can in the US and $30 a can here, if I can find it! Was planning on making a custom grille and got a cheap one to use but the chrome is peeling and I was wondering... Would the plasti dip would cover the slight unevenness in the surface or Do have to smooth it? If smoothing is required... Should I try sanding or filling it? If filling is better can I use something cheap and dodgy seeing as I'll be plasti dipping it? Second part is about wheels, I have a serious brake dust problem and keeping the wheels clean is a ridiculous PITA, if I clear coat them would they be easier or harder to keep clean (does the rubbery surface hold the dust worse)? Also is the clear coat a very noticeable matte finish? And lastly, my hubs are rusty, does plasti dip stick to a rough, rusty surface and if I sprayed it on the hubs would it peel off the smooth brake disc and separate cleanly at the hub? Thanks in advance. Here's a pic of what the chrome looks like (not my grille but similar), the difference in surface height is not huge, think a thin piece of paper, but it would be probably be visible after a few coats of regular paint. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v291/hansvonaxion/Parts/37349ff6.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
