Thanks for the advice. I ended up doing it Friday before any snow/humidity. Doing the touch ups Thursday when it will be in the 40s and dry.

Also, let it cure overnight so should be good.

The pathfinders are notorious for having a ridiculous heat shield where the brackets rattle. I would start there or have a tech check it out. Mine will do it at certain RPMs

Plasti dipped my 2011 LE

Finally got around to dipping the wheels. Have a few spots to touch up once this snow goes away, but love it.

Should I go ahead and do the chrome on the doors too?

Also, has anyone ever peeled the dip off just the lug nuts?

Question: has anyone peeled off the dip just on the lug nuts? I like the look of the silver lugs but obviously sprayed it with the wheels on.

Any advice would be appreciated

I can let it sit for 4+ hours if necessary

Plasti dip in cold/snow

So I finally bought the stuff to dip my wheels and OF COURSE its going to be in the high 30s-low 40s tomorrow and chance of snow. Now, I will be dipping in the garage, but I was wondering if that would effect the application. Also, if I let it dry a few hours and then have to drive through the snow,...

I leave mine in AUTO except on snow or ice-covered roads, which I will then switch to 4WD-Hi. It's similar in function to GM's SmartTrac II system. When in AUTO and in non-slip conditions, it will be in RWD mode until a slip is sensed or anticipated (like leaving from a start at WOT) and then will ...

I must have gotten a bad draw in the pinstripe department. Went at forever with the hairdryer and no dice.

Gave in and bought the 3M Stripe Off Wheel and still have a few areas I need to go back over today after using it last night. Was not expecting this to be such a big project.

I'm wondering if the cold is hurting me here because I just tried for 20 min to get one "started" and it could only get little flakes and wasn't able to pull it up at all.
