Hey, it’s Tony. Thank you for watching the video and checking out the blog. In this video, we’re going to talk about using Plasti-Dip to customize your car.
Finally, we’re going to start working on the BMW Z3 M Project. I’m going to show you what I’ll do quickly to get an idea then put some gloss paint on it.
We’re also going to paint the hood. As you can see, we have rock chips.
I can keep it stock. I know I should keep it stock. But, at the same time, if I’m going to be painting it, why should I keep it stock? I have mixed feelings about this because I personally like original cars.
So, what I’m planning on is paint the side areas, the mirrors and the area at the back gloss black. Then, black out the back lights so it’ll give it a totally different black look. I think it’s going to be pretty cool.
So, this is the enemy of paint, any kind of wax dried up. In the mirror, you can see wax dried up in-between the cracks.
We’re going to need a brush – a toothbrush works well and some car soap. So the first thing is to clean everything up before we paint then we’ll have some fun. We’ll paint all these pieces with flat black Plasti Dip and see how it looks.
Have you seen my audience Ally and Mayah? They’re pretty excited!
Our final end goal is to make it gloss black. But we’re going to quickly do a matte flat black just to see how it looks.
All the other pieces are going to be done with Plasti Dip. In the video, I show you the Plastic Flat Black Dip that you can use. When we’re done with it, we’re going to peel it off and see how cool that process is.
Watch the video as I give it a couple of coats. Make sure to spray it thickly because you’ll have problems if it’s too thin.
A lot of people think that a brillo pad scratches chrome, but that’s totally false. If you use a Triple O or a 4x O Brillo, it’s perfect for cleaning chrome. It takes the water spots out and makes pieces look brand new.
It’s perfect for cleaning plastic-plated chrome, chrome rims or anything plated. It will not scratch it.
Make sure to wash it off or blow it off really good so there’s no metal on it. Because if you don’t, the metal fibers left on it gets on the paint when it’s wet. You’ll have rust spots all over.
Now, we’re going to peel the Plasti Dip on the piece. So, check out how it looks.
It looks good flat black. We could keep it like that or we can peel this Plasti Dip off, sand it down and do a gloss black.
At least we have an idea of how it looks like. But like I said, the plan is to black out the lights by putting clear coat and some black base coat.
The whole back is going to be smoked out black. I think it’s going to really transform the back of this car. It’s going to look really cool.
Since I’m going ahead and make it gloss black, we can just peel off the Plasti Dip and it won’t hurt the paint. So, now we have our original color.
