View Full Version : Plastidipped my weatherstripping on the Del Slow

It doesn't look the best, and it wasn't really intended to. I just wanted to get the metal showing through from cracked weatherstripping covered. Was also an excuse to actually try out plastidipping stuff.

After cutting as much of the cracked stuff off as I could without spending a stupid amount of time getting the rest of it unglued from the metal. Starting to tape it up to be sprayed.


Here is after the first coat of it. I'd recommend being in a very well ventilated area when spraying this stuff.


And here is what it looks like now, after 3 thick coats of it. Not perfect, but at least its all covered up.

Looks good to me.

Hopefully it'll hold up pretty well. It looks good enough to me, if you get close though it doesn't look that great cause there was still some of the old weather strip below it. But it was cheap, and its on my daily, so I'm 100% ok with it.

Looks decent enough from 10ft. ;)
Let us know how it holds up to the weather out there.

dies great in weather, my brother had wheels (dont hold as well) and his bumper and hood dipped. they held without touchups for 4 months

According to the can it should hold up for a few years, but time will tell. I'm just glad its not shiny anymore, and thats enough for me.

Glad to hear it worked, I need to do the same on the Prelude. The first good wash after this winter had it coming off in chunks :(
