Using Liquid Vinyl Tool Handle Dip for Upholstery and Vinyl Tops??
Posted by Tinker on Friday, July 8, 2005 12:34 AM
Has anyone tried to use this material ( as is or thinned )?? It comes in red, yellow, green and black. It seems like a good idea, but I've never tried it.

Seems like it would be too thick and shinye to me. Plus doesn't it have a smooth finish? It would be worth a try on a scap just to see how it works. Could be used for something else.Smile

Plasti-Dip comes in a spray as well, and it does dry very smooth and shiny.

It could be perfect for old vinyl or naugahyde seat covers. I know on a lot of early pickups the seats had no texture, and some didn't even have piping or ribbing.

Might work well for a pimp-mobile, with a padded vinyl top (make sure you get the heart-shaped rear window too).

I don't think it would have the right texture, but a dull-cote would take care of the shine.

Hhhmmm... what about triing this stuff on Mopar or Pontiac rubber bumbers??? There are 3 things that will survive anything. Cockroaches, Keith Richards, and Slant 6 Dusters. "I'm not trying to change anybody's mind about anything, I'm just trying to ease my mind about everything" - Todd Snider

I always wondered whether that rubberized undercoating they use on 1:1 cars could be used for vinyl tops?
