2013 Mustang V6 Coupe - Plasti Dip Mods

So here are the first two mods I did with Plasti Dip. This is my first time using the Plasti Dip and I am wanting to do the wheels however I did one and started getting some texture...kinda looked like a rough texture.

Thoughts?

Nice! Looks good!
Just make sure your first coats are pretty light and you spray for about 6 inches away. I have those same wheels, so I know how it's kinda difficult getting the right texture with all of those angles

The distance is key. 6 inches and nice even coats.

My opinion will cost you nothing, because that's what it's worth.

I like the grill. I think all the `13s look best with a black grill of some sort. The Roush is my fave.

Don't care for the black fake gas cap or wheels. sorry.

if you want a rougher surface with plasti-dip you spray light even coats from a distance greater than 6" or so. If you want a smoother more rubbery look, then get close and lay it on thick. Be careful about runs and drips, but it seems harder to get runs and drips with plasti-dip compared to just regular paint.

I did my wheels this weekend. The plasti dip came out a little more textured then I wanted on 2 of the wheels so I will probably peal and re-spray this weekend.

I've dipped the three exact things you've done here.

The wheels are miserable to get perfect due to the design. You'll likely have to accept some level of flaws.

I've never been much of a fan of the plasti-dip look.

I'm not huge on the wheels or cap being coated, but the grill looks good.

I have a fan in my bedroom that has an annoying light on it when it's on. Kept me up at night. Plasti-dipped that hoe. Problem solved.

LOL...that's fantastic.

OP, I personally think the grille and gas cap look great. I got rid of the chrome on mine as well.

Not a HUGE fan of how the wheels look, but just my opinion.

Front grille looks awesome! I'm going to do it to keep me happy while I save for the Roush front grille setup.
