Gotcha, so 1 gallon should be enough to do a whole car then, did you use anything special to clean it before spraying it?.

I'm going to get 3 gallons. People talk about doing their honda's and it taking 2-3 gallons so I'm gonna get 3 and see how it goes.

I saw a Corvette last week that had been plasti dipped and then removed. He did not mask the car well and there was still plasti dip overspray down in every crack and crevis.

My buddy owns a paint and body shop and said to treat it like a paint. If you don't want it on it, you better mask it off.

I was going to try to mix my own from the thicker stuff to save a little money but decided that the 50 or so I'd save isn't worth it if it doesn't come out good and I have to buy the sprayable stuff anyways.

just be careful when taking the tape off cause the dip will bond to it and pull it up. So if you want to use a razor blade and cut on the tape line b4 you pull it up youll save yourself some time from respraying
