Hi guys,

Picked up my new grom last week, it was red but own a plast dip business in scotland so decided to dip her in white. Results are awesome....

Why sand the paint when you're using plastidip? I thought the whole point of that was that it's easily reversible.

Bike looks fantastic regardless.

I think he means this ^.

I also thought the purpose of plasti-dip was to allow for a temporary change? Wouldn't paint be a better option if your going to rub the panels down anyway?

It looks great in black and white by the way. I've purchased a red MSX125 too and am interested in switching the plastics or painting them white as that was my preferred colour.

Did you seal it with anything? I've used plasti dip for awhile, on all sorts of thimgs, my biggest problem with bikes is the rubbing against panels will cause it to peel. How have you faired with this? I'd think it'd be even worse on a grom since your legs sit on the plastics so much. Or do you plan to just reapply it when necessary?

With regards to temperature we have always done it in our workshop which is always pretty warm.....if you to plasti dip.com and send them an email, fonzy the guy who owns it always get back to you.

This is the first time I've done a bike and I was jus thinking the same regarding rubbing so not too sure what to do about this? Any thoughts or ideas? Like your say we can always just reapply but then your gonna waste alot of dip....

looks good! right when I got my red bike, I wanted to matte white it via plasti dip... and since its only a few panels that are red. i think it will look good dipped white, and probably little to no trouble with rubbing.

Nice work. Was considering a dip for mine as well. Keep us posted on how it holds up.
