    Ok so I went to plasti dip the chrome off of my 2014 LTZ RS. I took a bunch of time prepping and I even cleaned everything with acetone. Laid about four coats on every part and piece . Let it dry for 30 minutes between coat. When I went to peel off it was incredibly thin and difficult to get...

    First time using plasti dip. Unfortunately, the humidity was high during application, but only time I could do it. Drying times sucked. 2014 auto. I added glossafier on top of a black base coat. Left the middle emblem in the tire untouched with the lugs. Still hasn't cured completely. Do you...

    I decided to give plasti dip on my wheels a try. I have access to a paint booth at work so that made the whole process a lot easier and faster. Although I have to re-do them because I didn't use the "quarter" trick. So when I put my first lug nut on it peeled it off. But I think they came out...
  5. Gen1 Service Issues
    When Sherri and I arrived in Youngstown yesterday she said my car smelled hot. This isn't normal so I popped the hood to see a very thin sheen of oil across the top of the engine. Today at the Lordstown Park after our plant tour we were looking at it and one of the guys pulled the dip stick...

    Just heard about this "new Plasti Dip" called Auto Dip. Anyone use it before? It's supposed to give it a more vinyl look than Plasti Dip. It's $20 bucks a can compared to Plasti Dip's $6, but it is bigger than Plasti Dip. More color options. Not sure if it's worth the price...but it still...
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So at 90k miles I decided to switch to amsoil full synthetic 5w-30 and 2k miles later it is showing up as a reddish color. Is this normal for this type of oil? The dexos would still be a yellowish color. The only thing different about the car since the oil change was the installation of water...

    I have a 2012 Cruze LTZ RS with stock OEM wheels. I went to dinner the other night and noticed another cruze with what looked like stock wheels with plasti dip on them. I want to do the same thing to my wheels, just wondering what the secret is to doing it well and what is a good type to get...

  11. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    2014 Cruze Diesel, 21xxx on the clock. Noticed this issue awhile back, not sure if it is common or "normal". Under light acceleration the RPMs drop anywhere from 50-400ish from the 2000 mark. It sounds as though it is shifting, but its not. Does not seem to bog down; although, sometimes it...

    Anyone have experience with both of these items to provide some pro's and con's? I am thinking about doing a black plasti dip on the bowties, or a carbon fiber ink job. Im just curious about how wel each item holds up to the elements. On another note, I want to match the color of my engine...

    Planning to do this and need some tips and pics too. I've searched here and found pics of it done and looks really clean. Did you plasti dip the grille too while doing the chrome trim?

    Just an update. Last June I plastidipped some of the exterior (front, rockers,rear) of my Eco and the interior trim. My original post with pictures is:http://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/11-appearance-body-detailing-interior/75265-took-dip.html It's been 10 months, gone through a MN/WI summer, fall...

    To anyone of you who have used black Plasti-Dip, how well does the finish match this part? currently this part of the car- the applique trim as they call it, is covered in scratches. Instead of spending the ridiculous price of about $30 a piece of replacing them, I've decided maybe to...

    Grabbed a bit of sunlight. Had the bowtie black, and the chrome already, but I taped off and did the whole thing. I think I like it so far, I was on the fence. Took about an hour with taping, etc. Made it a bit thick because I rushed, so it could use some finesse when I redo some older...

    This weekend, I went against my own intuition and took a spray can to my 2 week old Chevy. I wanted to turn the gold on the emblems black as well as remove the "Cruze"and "LT" lettering. I think it turned out great! First, I first took off the lettering and here's how: First, I simply...
  20. General Discussion
    I am toying with the idea of dipping some parts on my car. Namely the front and rear emblems. Maybe the wheels, and then I have the 2015 with the new front end so I was considering dipping the bottom most lip between the LEDs black to make it look more like the RS which has two black strips...
