This product is awesome. It's not permanent, so you can mess up as much as you want. It's easy to apply. It's easy to remove. Try it on anything, if you don't like it just peel it off.
I blacked out my emblems on my Nissan 370z. It looks really good if you want the "blacked out" look.
Keep in mind that I was filming this with one hand and using my other hand to peel off the Plasti Dip, so I apologize for all the grunting and stuff. No homo.
Common Answer #1: You will need approximately 3 cans to spray all four wheels using 4 coats on each wheel.
Common Answer #2: You can buy Plasti Dip at Home Depot, Lowes, and OSH.
Common Answer #3: Yes, it's safe to drive through the car wash and pressure wash over the Plasti Dip, but I wouldn't recommend it.
Common Answer #4: It's not necessary to spray the inner wheel wells. I just sprayed the face of the wheel.
Common Answer #5: The newspaper masking was to prevent over spray and makes cleaning up easier and quicker.
Lastly, I made this video to show the car enthusiast community, who are interested in blacking out their emblems, a much easier way to do so without removing the emblem and painting it or buying a whole new black emblem.
Plasti Dip can result in different textures depending on the outside temperature and how close/far you spray. Try it and see what works best for your specific application.

Plastidip Taillight Tint Stencil Diy
Here are the answers to most of your questions....
1. Will it come off?
No it's not permanent but YES it is resilient. I had it on my lights for
months with out it getting scratched or peeling.
2. Is this regular or smoke Plastidip
It is regular. I do say this in the video, however I should have put it in
the description. Sorry for the confusion.
3. Is that Forza Music? What kind of car is that?
Yes it is! :) Makes for great ambient music. Also, it's a BMW 335xi. It's
my winter car. (thus the whole "it's cold right now" in the video)
4. Yes it IS illegal.
At least where I live. HOWEVER, no I didn't get pulled over once for it. I
got pulled over for speeding and the cop didn't even mention it. I really
think it just depends on the cop that is behind you and how he feels about
5. isn't it too dark? Aren't you worried about people not being able to see
your lights when you brake? etc.
No, in the video they might look KIND OF dim, but in person the light
output was barely changed. HOWEVER, that doesn't mean that it wont be on
your car. It depends on what kind of bulbs you have, HOW MANY COATS YOU
DID, and just in general how nice your lights are. Either way, it was not
an issue with me and not once did I get the impression that someone
couldn't see them. Plastidip IS very transparent if you do a few light
coats... you literally JUST watched proof that it is... lol
6. Why didn't you use film? or why didn't you use "night shade"?
First off, I didn't use night shade because until I read these comments I
hadn't ever heard of it.
Second, I didn't use film because the other sets of film that i've used
either didn't fit right, were a pain to take off, peeled up on the edges,
and were much more expensive than this DIY.
7. Why did you use masking tape instead of electrical tape, duct tape etc.
Because masking tape leaves ZERO residue. Duct tape and electrical tape can
both leave lots of residue. As I stated in the Video though, you can always
use flexible nylon/ straight line tape I believe for round edges.
8. Why didn't you just mask everything BUT the clear part then blah blah
really?... mask the part that I WANTED to paint?....
A. that would have taken forever
B. it would have used WAY more paint.
C. I would NEVER mask everything then use a razor on my tail lights....
thats just silly.
9. What was the point of the "press and seal"
The point of that was to show you another way that I had seen it done. I
then went on to say how I do not reccomend it cause you would get garbage
10. How many coats did you do?
If you watch the video I technically did 1 coat. it was a thick coat but I
did that because I knew I wasn't going to be laying it on to the point that
it was not transparent. you will have to be the judge on how many
coats/passes you do. Good news is, if you put on too much, or too little,
no worries! It's plastidip and it'll come right off! Than do it again!
11. Could you do this on your headlights?
I guess you could... although I could see that being a much easier way to
get pulled over. But really, it's worth a try. Worst case is you tell the
cop that pulls you over that you didn't realize it was illegal and ask him
if he'll give you the opportunity to peel it off on the spot.
12. Do you feel the edges with your hands?
You can if you rub your hand over it, but it's very faint. And no it did
not make it peel.
Really at the end of the day, Like I said in the video. Its not everyones
style. It's non permanent, it's SUPER cheap, and most of all THIS MAINLY
WAS A TEST AND A GUIDE ON HOW TO STENCIL YOUR TAIL LIGHTS not REALLY how to
plastidip your lights. So use whatever product you want. I just used
regular dip cause I had some lying around from doing window trim.
And like most mods to your car, you're doing this at your own discretion,
so be safe and use common sense. if you "black out" your lights, you may be
running the risk of accident. So only go to the point that they are still
Thanks for all the thumbs up, and all the kind comments. Hopefully this
