A week after Plasti Dip

So after a week of letting my Plasti Dip dry completely, I finally took it to the car wash, I was a bit worried about the high pressure sprays, but It all came out fine.

Try not to pressure wash. sometimes fine dirt can fly and scratch.

You are an enthusiast. Automatic car washes are evil. Please don't mingle with the enemy.

I used regular blue painters tape, you do not have to fine tune the masking because the Dip just peel right off wherever you don't want it.

I am actually considering spacers, I want to lower but the labor prices around here are crazy.

lower it, you will not regret it. I got my spring installed for around 480 with alignment. I am not sure about your place though.

yes, I plasti-dip it all, so far so good, no chip or peels. Wheels look as if they just got done. I go to the car wash at lease 2 times a week.
