Hydro Dip tank cover

Post by Striff » Wed Sep 12, 2018 10:30 am

Hi have a fairly large Hydro Dipping set-up and only just started to use it.

So I decided to do the tank cover.


Scotched Brited with warm soapy water, to remove any release agent.

Plastic primed, then painted in a grey

After dipping, washing and 2-pac clearing

Shouldn't be an issue as the 2pac automotive clear will have the UV agents in it.

I've done a bicycle helmet a few years back and still looks great
