    I plasti-dipped the rockers

    Winter is here in Minnesota now so i decided to plasti-dip the rockers panels to help protect the paint from all the sand and gravel on the roads. There is a crease or door line that i followed to keep it straight.

    what do you think?

    Hope it works well for you. What did you do for preping other than masking off? Did you do rear lower fender behind the wheels too?

    Looks good! And, it can be repeated/touched up as needed.

    How far under the car did you go?

    I did it far enough to cover the under side of the rockers.

    I prepared with a product call grease and wax remover (made by Duplicolor) got it at the local auto parts store. then using a lint free towel clean with a glass cleaner 3 different times. then put on 3 coats of plasti-dip.

    I'm just curious as to how difficult it would be to remove the plasti-dip if you should ever choose to do so ... On any of the items you have "dipped" ??
