Thanks for watching the video. Rasping is another thing you can do to reduce a lot of sanding time. It’s like cheese grater rasping. You have to rasp the body filler as close to the metal as possible. The holy block has holes on one side and flat surface on the other. I like to hold it where I can put my fingers in the holes. It’s easier to use that way because it gives you a little bit of grip while blocking. I wrap it with an 80-grit sandpaper disc and put some water into the holes so the water dribbles on the surface while I’m wet sanding. There are longer blocks. Some are eighteen inches, twenty-four inches and some are 2-foot long. You use them for door panels and classic cars where there are a lot of flat areas. You just need to put some straight sandpaper on it. Now, we also have an air straight sander that you use on flat areas. I usually put an 80-grit or a 36-grit sandpaper. You need to put a heavy duty sandpaper on it. I also have a Dura-Block that you can use on curves. It’s rubbery and you can roll up your sandpaper around it. It’s especially good on classic cars where there are curvy areas, especially around the lights. Then, you also have a foamy block which is good for water sanding and cutting things down quickly. These are also good for corners. I got mine from Meguiar’s. You can also use a basic painter stick for tiny areas. Just break the stirrer and wrap a sandpaper around it. I use it in-between doors and between fenders to correct gaping. You can also use these old school rubber blocks. You can use anything as a block. Let your imagination run wild. I usually keep a box of used sandpapers with all kinds of grit. I only throw sandpaper away if they’re really bad, but if there’s a little bit of grit left on it, I keep it in this box for later use. Make sure to constantly hit your sandpaper pad to take all the dust off. I hope you liked it. I’m going to have the rest of the videos available for you within the LearnAutoBodyAndPaint VIP course.

Plasti Dip Rims Durability Myth - Peel Off Plasti Dip - Lug Nut Test - 1 Year Later

We'll talk about Plasti Dip rims durability and bust some myths. We plastidipped four rims of a car and I've been getting a lot of questions over the year. How durable is it? Is it easy to peel back off?...etc. This video is going to be exactly about that. We're going peel it off after being on the car for about a year and talk about durability and a couple of other things. As far as durability, it holds up amazing. Rocks, chips...never had any. It never peeled off. I just started peeling it for this video so I can have a piece to grab. We gave it a good 3-4 coats, covered it beautifully as you can see. When I sprayed the Plasti Dip on, I didn't take off the lug nuts, the rim...all I did was covered the rear disc brake with a plastic bag and you know people gave me heat... "Oh why are you painting over the lug nuts?" "Why don't you take the whole rim off?" or about painting the back of it well... All I wanted to do was just to get the black look outside, you know. It looked great! Never had a problem with it. Nobody even knew it was just Plasti Dip. So now I will peel it off. And yes, it may be harder to peel off on the inner side of the rim where it's kind of more like an overspray. But we'll see how that comes out right now. If anything, I'll just repaint it. No big deal. As far as the lug nuts, I snapped the lug nuts off once to take the tire off and it didn't peel the Plasti Dip within the lug nut area. I just basically pulled it out and just took the Plasti Dip off the lug nuts. You can't even tell that they were tampered with. Maybe on one, a little bit from the impact wrench but overall, this thing held up for a year with no problems. So let's go ahead and start peeling it off and see what happens. This is about a year of being on my rim and it held up beautifully. When I wash the car, I scrub it with a brush, but there's been no scratches...no nothing. It held up really nice and I think it comes off pretty easily, too. You can see it's still peeling off nicely after being on the rim for a year. Part of the trick is to just put it on thick. This way it's easy to peel off. You know if you put it on thin, you will have a problem. It's pretty cool because it preserved the rim. In some areas where it was thin, it was a little harder to take off so I just had to rub it with my fingers to come off. But not a big deal. So my #1 recommendation is: when you put Plasti Dip on, put it on thick! The thicker you put it on, the easier your job will be when you're ready to take it off to put a new color on it or leave as is. Considering this has been on 105 degree heat to 15 degree ice, we put up probably 5,000 miles on this car within the year (We don't drive it all around, it's just a side vehicle)...I'll say the Plasti Dip is pretty cool stuff, super durable! I hope that answered a lot of your questions on this stuff... Yes, it's durable. Yes, it peels off. Yes, you could spray it with the lug nuts on and then take the lug nuts off later and not have a problem. You know if you want, you can take the whole rim off, clean the back sides, spray all of it. I hope this video clears some stuff up for you.

See if it has gouges, cracks and ripples in the mold (which is normal) especially if your buying a body kit in the range of $200. -- $1,500. If you're spending more on a brand name quality kit for a BMW or Mercedes then you'll be paying from $5,000 -- $20,000 for the high end wide body kits. Their molds are superior and made out of OEM style polyurethane which doesn't need much modification before being painted.
