Default Plasti Dipping your car

This is probably going to make me sound like a noob...but I don't care.

I want to change the color of my stripes going down my hood and the side of my car from black to blue. A buddy of mine said I should plasti dip them since it's removable and I could do it myself. Only problem is.. I don't even know where to start...like what to buy..and how to prep up for it. I mean, I can figure it out...but I still don't know which product to buy.. like which works the best or what would be best for pin stripes and such

If they are that easy to remove why not see how much they cost at a dealership, or find someone with the color you want and gank em

Yeah, that's the website I've been looking at for the past few minutes.. found a nice color I want.

I plan on plastidipping my bottom trims, front trim, back trim, door handles, front stripes side strips, grill, hood blower and maybe some other things.

Im not too sure how well itll do on the car, i know that its awesome for rims and badges. The only thing is youll have to keep a close eye on it, cause if it gets knicked by anything it comes off easily from contact with rocks and such. But if you do it post pics please! I would love to see it done!

just like any other paint prep procedure..
tape of the area clean it with soap/water and DRY it 100% and start painting

if you dont like the results... peel it off

i just plasti dip'd my rims 2 weeks ago.. went from factory chrome 5spokes to satin black... looks alot cooler

I plastidipped my stock Pathfinder rims and its been on there for about 7 months now. Needs a bit of touching up but im surprised how long its lasted looking that good. Been through many carwashes, offroading, stuff like that.
