This question holds a lot of people back from actually getting started: how many gallons of plasti dip would I need?
..and I get it. You don’t want to buy the wrong amount of dip. Unfortunately, there isn’t a one size fits all answer for this question, but we can give you some suggestions.
Here’s a chart we created to help you make a decision:
Let’s start with 2 door coupes. For example, 1993 Honda Civic, 2003 Honda Accord, or a 2004 Acura RSX. For these cars 3 gallons of plasti dip spray will do the job.
However, you might need a fourth gallon if you’re going from a dark stock color to a light matte color. (eg. Black to Matte White) The fourth gallon will ensure that you get full coverage. I believe its better to have more dip than to run our before the paint job is done.
Next.. 4 door sedans. For these cars 4 gallons is ideal. Again with the mindset that you rather have more dip than you need, than worry about how much you have left.
Finally, SUV’s and trucks should definitely get 5 to 6 gallons of rubber dip spray. 4 gallons will only be enough for a few coats and if you want the best results, more coats is better.
So, I hope this post helped you in making that decision. If you have any questions, leave them in the comments section below.
