Plasti Dip

When we bought Matty's car one of the quick fix things was going to be the stripes. I thought they would be an easy fix that would really make it look a lot better. The problem was getting them off, nothing we tried would remove them short of sanding them down and harming the paint underneath.

A few weeks ago I talked Matty into trying Plasti Dip on them, the process is documented all over the net. For around $20.00 in materials and one evening of work Matty did 95% of the work and they came out much better than I would have expected. The cracking in the vinyl is still visible but its really a five foot thing.

Here is what they looked like when we bought it, damaged from sitting in the sun.

Here they are after Matty painted them.
