What is a Dipped Car
There’s a time, place, and a vehicle for a proper show-winning paint job.
What happens when you have the itch to customize your car or give it a better finish then it currently has, but don’t have the ability, tools, time or cash for a traditional repaint.
Recently automotive enthusiasts have found a reversible way to customize and change the color of their vehicle without damaging the paint. This craze is called “dipping your car”.
What’s involved when you dip your car. Well basically it’s a plastic coating that when sprayed heavy enough, can be peeled off of the surface without damaging the paint underneath.
The key is to lay enough coats that you create a tough, flexible “skin” over the vehicle. Plasti-Dip and other plastic coatings were originally known for coating the handles of tools, benches, outdoor public furniture and other oddball uses until someone discovered that you can obtain the plastic coatings in gallons and spray it through a household paint sprayer.
