Haha I read the manual, and it said to use water.

Ok, so you just spray a whole quart of paint thinner through it, and disassemble the whole tip to clean by hand?

Jeremy, you just spray a quart of water through it when you're done? I know after a few big dips you'll need to deep clean it, disassemble etc. But for the first few, just spray a full quart of water through it?
Did you spray this srtoad?

If you're doing matte clear over your stock paint, 1 gallon is sufficient.

If you're doing a full color change, you'll need 3-4 gallons, depending on if your car is light/dark and if the end resulting dip you want to be light/dark.

I'd always say order 4 gallons to be sure, never hurts to have a little extra dip on hand for touchups

Au contraire:


People plastidip SPECIFICALLY to protect their car from winter/salt/rocks/etc.

It's actually the same price form both.

However I have Prime with Amazon, so free 2-day shipping. Otherwise I would have paid like $15 from DYC for shipping.
