  1. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    Hey y'all! I have a 2011 that is currently silver in color, with the exception of the hood and tailgate, which I have already dipped matte black. My question is, how many cans do I need to dip the sides and roof? I think I used at least 2 cans each for the hood and door. I fear not buying enough...

    Well I know its been a "thing" for years using plastidip and this is my first attempt with it. I am happy with the results. Very easy to do - I cleaned the area with prep cleaner, taped it off and sprayed 1 layer every 10 minutes and let it fully dry for 20 minutes. Peeled off tape and excess...

    So the other day I noticed there's a small knick in the black plastic paneling around my passenger front window. (Think I got hit by something on the highway.) underneath is my clear white paint... As if it just peeled away? So I guess these panels are plastidip? Figured I'd spread the news. I...

    I have a 2010 black soul 4U with the burner interior. I just had black widow rims from Streetgear installed on my soul. They look amazing on it. My problem now is that the chrome trim around the grille, around the side repeater lights, the door handles and accent strip at the back look out of...

    Hi all, Just picked up my Plus Alien II a couple days ago and now I'm sitting in photoshop playing with some ideas. I think I'll probably run out later and grab a few rattlecans of Plastidip to see if the designs translate over to physical. Also, not pictured... I'm considering taping off...

    Pro's and Con's?? I've got the stock 16" rims that came with my 2010. I've seen postings on both.....but which way is better? Holds up longer? Easier to clean? Withstand the Arizona sun/heat? Leaning toward sand and paint but once it's sanded there's no turning back. Any input? Thanks...
