Whelp, that is sweet. My vinyl wrap may have just decided to not be finished even when it warms up.

Hello plasti dip!

Very Very cool. Curious how it will stand up in the bush, but it looks great.

Since seeing this earlier, I watched a few you tube videos on it. Looks like you can do multiple coats and it gets to be pretty thick and durable.

We have the same problem with frozen deliveries. They pack the ups trucks the night before and then they sit.

Next day I receive my frozen beard conditioner.

best part about plasti dipping is it costs like 20 bucks a can, you can change your color every week if you really want and even if the brush does scuff it up a bit you can just spray a quick touch up ;) you can even get a glossifier if you don;t like the matte look

FYI- I got four cans of the black plasti dip at Home Depot for $5.98 per can.
Can you tell me, (if they say) the temp range for applying it on the can please?

From Plasti Dip's website. Btw new to the forum, just picked up my Pioneer 4 in red a few days ago. So far really like it, started at -9 degree's F the other morning!

"Using Plasti Dip Spray in cooler temperatures may affect drying times, finish quality, and spray performance. If you plan on spraying your project in cooler conditions, we recommend pre-warming the aerosol can by placing it in a warm room and allowing the contents to reach room temperature. Under no circumstances should users subject the aerosol can to temperatures above 120°F or use heat from an open flame or other sources of ignition to pre-warm the spray can. Additionally, cooler conditions may affect the surface you are spraying. If you are concerned about spraying your project in cooler temperatures, test in an inconspicuous area first to ensure the resulting finish will be what you're looking for."

I'm assuming that results would be best at 65-70 degrees, anything below 45 degrees would make me nervous but I can't see where they give an actual recommended temp range on the net maybe on the can?

Found some more on application temp range. Again from Plasti dips website.

"Temperature is also an important factor when applying Plasti Dip. Ideally, Plasti Dip should be applied at “room temperature” temperatures, from 65-70°F. (Though I myself used aerosol Plasti Dip on a project in my unheated garage a few weeks back, and, while I’m no human thermometer, I’m pretty sure the temperature in there was lower than the ideal. The Plasti Dip went on just fine, and dried in the usual amount of time with no problems.)
And speaking of ideal application conditions, it is best to avoid direct sunlight, high humidity, and windy conditions, if possible. High humidity and higher or lower than ideal temperatures can adversely affect the finish of Plasti Dip once it dries, making it look cloudy or hazy. (This wasn’t a concern for the project I mentioned above, as I painted over the Plasti Dip after it dried.)
To get the best possible results, apply 2-3 coats of Plasti Dip to your project. Five coats is probably the maximum that you’d ever need, but for aesthetic reasons or for extreme protection you can certainly add more. Be sure to let each coat dry completely before applying the next, approximately 30-40 minutes, and allow for at least four hours of drying time before actually using your Plasti Dipped item, whatever it may be."

Welcome to the forum and thank you for real world and web info. I tried a vinyl wrap a couple weeks back, but my shop area that's heated can get 40-50 degrees tops when its below zero. Just didn't turn out well. Been thinking hard about the plasti dip. Maybe I will just dismantle the front clip and use the kitchen table... thanks again.

Thanks!, and I want pictures of what your wife does to you if you spray that on her kitchen table :)
