    2014 Diesel Cruze that I bought in May 2015 -- the last one on that dealer's lot. Bought it with 3 miles and it's at 37k miles now; just got back from a 3,600 mile thanksgiving roadtrip STL to LA and back. I had the fuel filter changed out when I got back. Other than that, besides a few emission...

    Plasti Dipped and removed lettering on my 2015 Cruze. Included a how to and pics. 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...

    Just wondering, anybody on here dipped their entire car? I wanna know how many gallons of dip are going to be needed and just in general see how dip looks on the entire car. I have plans to dip the majority of the car excluding the roof and trunk all white. Right now it's BGM so I'm going for a...

    I've been looking for ideas for my Cruze and have been looking at a lot of pictures from people who have done their entire car. Figured I'd help others out with their searches and consolidate what I have found so far. I found a few on the Dip Your Car forums luckily. Intense Chevy Cruze...

    She's been dipped.... I'm kinda impressed with myself... I think it looks pretty slick. Better pictures tomorrow... But I will really be anxious to see what I need to touch up. And I also need to wait for the bazillion coats I put on to dry before I take the stuff out that is covering the calipers

    The Engine Cover and the Bowtie on the steering wheel? Plasti Dip is good to like 300*F. I think the engine gets a bit hotter than that. I'm sure paint is the way to go, just curious. The bowtie has an odd texture and i know vinyl starts to peel after a while. I think the bowtie will be the...

    Ever since I bought my m537s I've loved the look of the rim, but hated how they disappear too easily in pictures and even in person. So, one random day I bought a Vintage Gold wheel kit from Dip Your Car and went for it. After painting them I have to say that I absolutely love how they came out...

    If you looked at my update thread i posted last week, you saw that one of the future mods i wanted to do was dip the ugly interior trim black. But at the last minute, i decided to do it in white because the overall theme of my car is black and white anyways. I felt that it would too dark if that...

    I just dipped my bowties today, and the edges look terrible. I taped off everything, applied 3 coats of dip, then cut along the edges with a knife (don't have exacto knife) while peeling the tape, but my edges still look terrible. I also feel like if i wipe the bowtie too hard with a towel or...

    Hello I am going to be dipping my wheels here soon and I have two questions. 1. If you took off your wheels do dip them, and you went to put them back on did the dip come off the lugs when putting them back on? 2. If you left your wheels on should I just tape off the breaks with newspaper? My...

    This was my first experience with Plasti Dip or even any sort of painting on a car for that matter. I did 4 coats and pulled the tape immediately while still wet hoping for sharp clean lines. The stuff must dry really fast cause some of my lines didnt turn out as clean as I hoped. I cleaned the...

I did the first 2 coats (about 1 can) in black since my local Lowes only had 3 cans of white left. 4 cans in I really really dig the white on blue. What do you guys think? Not the best pictures but best I...
