Plasti-Dip Emblems, Grill, and Chrome Window Trim

I know others here have already done work with plasti-dip but I figured I would share my photo's of how it turned out as well. I am pretty impressed with the stuff and plan on dipping my wheels as well as soon as it stops raining here.

I just did my grill..
I took it off, masked it properly and cleaned it with alcohol
After about a day or two mine started bubbling and not looking so smooth and nice as it should..

Try lighter coats 05coupe. Start with 2 light-ish coats, then a nice thick one.

In addition, make sure you are at least 6inches away and that your using relatively smooth sweeping motions and not hovering in one place to long.

The reason it's bubbling is because your too close and spraying too much. And also First coat should be very thin.
