Plasti Dipped Bumper
 
1 Attachment(s)
Finally got up the courage to plasti dip my bumper. I think it looks good from a distance, but when you look up close you can see lines where I stopped and started. Any tips of advice for when I decide to do my front bumper? Thanks in advance.

Also, the black plastic piece wasn't put back on the bumper yet when I took this pic, that's why you see the chrome behind where the license plate goes. I'll try to get some updated pics when I get a chance. Thanks for looking!

Looks good in the picture. Reps for dipping and posting. How many coats did you put on. Usually the more coats you put on the less lines you see. They tend to blend in better.

Looks good! Have you thought about dipping your badges?

Thanks! I put 3 coats on. This was my first experience with plasti dip and the can said 3-4 coats average, so I just went with three. I may redo it in the future when I do my front bumper and possibly the grill.

Appreciate it! I have thought about dipping the badges. I am going for all black, slowly but surely lol. I plan to debadge the tailgate and if I don't debadge the doors then I will dip them.

Looks good.. Usually 4 coats works good and just make sure to do long smooth strokes and overlap. I love my blacked out emblems and bumpers+ grill.. Looks awesome.

The lines I'm referring to are where I overlapped, but maybe a 4th coat would have done the trick. I'll keep that in mind when I do my front bumper. Thanks!

How many cans did it take to do three coats?

RogerRamJet 06-17-2014 02:59 PM

I would plan for 1 can per coat. You could probably get away with two cans. Really depends on how thick you put it on.

I dipped my entire truck and i learned that if you do not spray from a far enough distance you will get those lines no matter how many coats you use
