Plasti Dip your fenders. *PICS*

The rage across the Internet on truck, car and boat forums recently has been the Plasti Dip spray for "murdering out" or blacking out wheels, trim, handles, mirrors - you name it guys are Plasti dippin stuff everywhere. This has led me to think about using the Plasti dip spray on my ATV fenders IF its a durable finish.

Knowing plastic and getting good adhesion being important I thought I'd definitely have to scuff the fenders up in order to achieve good adhesion with the fenders. The last thing I wanted to do was screw up my Grizzly Fenders. So I got to thinking about this old broken arctic cat fender I had in my attic that I could do a test run with.

I climbed up in my attic and grabbed the old fender and set it up in my garage to begin my test.

Earlier I had gone by my local lowes and picked up a can of valspar plastic primer, a can of the Plasti dip spray in black, a roll of the new frog tape for taping off the sections I didnt want dipped and a couple scuff pads by 3M.


First things first I cleaned the plastic with some standard mineral spirits.




Then I took the frog tape and started taping off the area I wanted to end up black. My goal was to create a sort of fender flare look with the black Plasti dip where it would normally get hit by sticks and crap while trail riding.










Once I things taped off good and covered for overspray I took the 3m pads and started scuffing the plastic area where I was going to paint to get the shine off in order to create an area for painting.






One more time with the mineral spirits to be sure I had things clean and on goes the first coat.




15-20 minutes in between coats. On goes the second, third and a fourth coats.


Once I had plenty of coats on and somewhat dry I started removing some of the tape and overspray covers.








Once this dries overnight I'll see how the tape comes off and after a few days of hardening I'll start testing this thing out checking to see how durable it is. Probably smack it around with some sticks to simulate some trail riding. If its good I'll consider doing the same treatment to the grizzly fenders. If it sucks I'll try some other painting techniques on the other side of my "test fender".

Just thought I'd share my experiment.

Nice job dude. Curious as well as to how well it holds up to some abuse.

Looks good. And an easy way to keep plastics looking good. If it works it'll be a hit with a lot of blokes I recon

Definitely want to see the results as I was thinking of using plast-dip on some of my truck parts but am worried about durability ,but if it can hold up to trail riding on an ATV I may just have to order a palette of the stuff and go crazy.

I used plasti dip on my wheels. I was going to use it on my plastics but the color wasn't what I was expecting when I opened the can.

They have held up really well and I didn't do any prep, just cleaned them really well and painted it on.

Isn't the whole point of Plasti dip the ability to cleanly take it off with out damaging the surface underneath? If you are just going to scuff the plastic anyways why don't you just use some paint that is designed for plastic? Then you get more color choices.

Graystone you are correct. However I've read thread after thread on different forums about paint chipping and cracking when flexed. I wanted to see what this plasti dip spray looked like, felt like, and just how it holds up on an ATV fender. I would never experiment on my grizzly plastics but since I had this spare arctic cat fender I thought why not play around with it.

I'm waiting for the plastidip to cure and harden, should be fine by tonight when I get home. Then I'll bang it around and see what happens. Might try some paint on the other side and see how it holds up.

Has anyone used a bedliner material, like you purchase from an autoparts store, and roll it on,... maybe I need to start an new thread to get more eyeballs on this topic

Do a search for linex. nc grizz rider did a thread back in 2010 lining his plastics with liner. I've had my front and rear racks, bumpers and winch mount linex'ed before on a previous Yamaha. It was a great finish and durable as can be. But I can't speak for doing the plastics with the roll on.
