Re: Alternative to PlastiDip and undersuit idea


Oh yeah, Bruce & Brin. I haveta admit having used a right-triangle Exacto for latex that thick - first to punch through and start the cut - then the scissors. But what the heck. Now you can probably clean it up with a Dremel, even bore and smooth the venting if you want.

Nice swap for Plasti Dip. Even though water soluble, I'd think it stays on well when dry.

What about spraying it through an HVLP sprayer?

UBCS: I have no any idea about using a sprayer. You might want to contact Miller Tire and ask about that. All I can tell you is that the 50/50 paint/water mixture is thinner than paint.

Zane: according to the company the tire paint is waterproof. Makes sense given that tires are going to get wet in rain or snow (unless you live in the desert). :)

I've been resisting* getting a Dremmel for years. I may have to bite the bullet...

Re: Alternative to PlastiDip and undersuit idea



I got in the smaller bottle earlier. Tested it on a Returns kneecap. It does go a long way. The plain spray bottle I put it in didn't disperse well and I'm not hooking up the air sprayer for a test part.

I can post pictures later. I had to brush it on with a piece of foam. 3 coats diluted was OK, still left light brush strokes. The last coat was not diluted at all. Currently waiting on it to dry.

I want to test this on bodysuits as well.

Re: Alternative to PlastiDip and undersuit idea



The last time I touched the last coat, it was still slightly tacky feeling. I'm sure it was dry, but the stuff may have that rubbery feel. Armor all might take care of it, but I won't try that until parts are mounted to a suit.

Pictures monday.

Re: Alternative to PlastiDip and undersuit idea


I was incorrect in my original post about the tire paint drying in a half-hour. UB's right, it does stay tacky for some time, maybe days, but then it's been very humid around here, not the best conditions to dry anything.

I haven't noticed that the tire paint has any particular odor when it does dry, certainly no more than dried Plasti in any event.

It doesn't smell too bad. It smells like latex on the inside of the cowl and that's all we smell anyway, right? :hey
