This is a late comment but I've dipped cars and many things.......


DO NOT SKIMP ON THE PLASTIDIP. Always do several more layers than they say, too thin and you'll never peel it all off. Thicker is generally better in terms of total quantity

Two gallons isn't enough for a car this size to make the dip thick enough to easily remove....you'll be chipping away for many many hours.

Celica was due for a oil change. so might aswell due the valve cover gasket and repray the cover. vht black wrinkle that is =D. First time trying rotella, hope it lives to the hype I've seen. Should have finished pictures tomorrow.

Haven't updated this thread in a while, so for records here is what's going on. Decided after a year to take off the Plasti Dip and finally go for some new paint.
I did like the plasti dip but at the time I got stuck with the original white dip formal which had its problems. (heard they fixed alot of them) I also had a rust spot on the bottom of the passenger door that needed repair.


Dip came off pretty easy but I wish I tapped off alot of spots. It is.... what it is.. I ended up taking off doors, hood, trunk and got all the over spray dip off.
I fixed rust spots that I missed the first time and went over the car with some high grit sand paper.


Soooooo I am painting it Rustoleum Gloss Sail Blue.
Here is after 2 very thin coats.. Did I mention I am using a roller?? Yup, so this is going to take some time and I'll be back to post the complete project...
edit: Roof is going Rustoleum gloss black as well..

Wow that looks awesome for being rolled on! How hard is it to do? Do you need to do any primer or just scuff the clear and then paint?

You have to do alot more coats and sanding due to how much you have to thin it out. It's always a good idea to do primer but I've seen many feather edges and scuff.
It goes on like glass for the most part so the more prep the better it looks. Google or youtube "50 dollar paint job" or "rust oleum paint job car rolled".
Do alot of research, there is also a thread on here with someone doing the same but black acouple years ago. Hope that helps.

Well I guess I lied about posting when finished.. Almost done.



This is only with one cut and buff.

Still need to cut and buff hood & front bumper. Then Finish the black roof top - in pics:2 coats and a cut - no buff.
Lip kit still needs more paint too. It already looks great as you can see though.

Nice, its so nice seeing other coupe builds to compare my coupe with. I like it so far, what type of wheels do you plan on getting?
And what type of BMW is that roof spoiler off of? if you don't mind me knowing.
