Plasti Dip

Post by dakotalharman » Thu Mar 22, 2018 6:15 pm

Does anyone have experience with dipping their neon? On a scale from 1-10 how would you rate the level of difficulty of doing it on a neon, mine specifically is a 2005 SXT 4-Door. I know the neon is already a pretty small car, comparable to a Porsche 911 size like. Even smaller maybe.

I've only done badges. I'm about to try it out on a set of wheels. For the whole car, there are countless videos on YouTube that go over how to do it and what the challenges are. As with all things bodywork, preparation is key. It's a lot easier than traditional paint, but it's still a lot of work.

Didn't DJ PlastiDip his old Neon? He would probably have some pointers on doing that.

It can be done. Just coat it enough so that it won't be hard to remove later.
