    Help Plasti-dip question

    I want to plasti-dip my Suburban in blue to match the color that is peeling off. I want to know if any one has ever sprayed the gallon stuff through a regular paint spray gun??? Unfortunately they don't sell blue in the spray cans.

    dipyourcar.com that guy has many videos of spraying parts to entire vehicles and he also sells full kits with sprayers to be used with the gallon of dip.

    I know that, but I have access to a full body shop. I don't see the point of spending $85 for a sprayer when I don't need to.



    I just want to know if anyone has seen or heard of any issues doing it this way

    If you buy the plasti dip from the dipyourcar website, they have a kit with thinner, so you can use it in a spray gun.

    From the FAQ on their site:
    "- Can Plasti Dip® be sprayed out of a spraygun? Of course! We have shops and customers all over the country who spray our Plasti Dip® through all kinds of sprayers and spray guns. Pre-thinned Plasti Dip® is available through DipYourCar.com in Gallons! It comes ready to spray."

    I couldn't find any pre-thinned gallons on their site, but maybe if you call them you can get it.

    This is all I found:

    thanks. I thought that was the case, but was looking for experience or someone who sees the same things I do

    Re: Plasti-dip question

    once its thinned out you just spray it like any other paint. There are going to be a couple slight difference and you may need a bigger or small tip but aside from that it should be a no brainer.
    Usually, there is something cool to read here, but since I'm not that witty and and don't have a catchphrase, I am sorry to say you have just been suckered into wasting your time reading this.
