West Coast Challengers gathered in Canoga Park for a day of learning and supporting their fellow club members as some members decided to try their hand using Plasti Dip to spray different items on their Dodge Challengers. Some club members chose something as simple as the DODGE letters on the back of the car, while others went for larger items such as blacked out wheels. Plasti Dip is a very economical way of making modifications to your car while having the versatility to remove it without any damage to your vehicle should you not like the end result or simply change your mind.

In the simplest form, Plasti Dip can best be described as a quick drying, synthetic, rubber coating that can be applied to just about anything. But, unlike paint, Plasti Dip can be peeled off. The product comes in both an 11 oz. spray or 7.25 oz., 14.5 oz., and 22 oz. cans for brush-on applications, and also comes in a variety of colors and the ability to create custom colors. For the car enthusiast, it makes giving any car part that “blacked out” look extremely easy.

Plasti Dip is a multi-purpose, air dry, specialty rubber coating. It can be easily applied by dipping, brushing, or spraying. Plasti Dip protective coating is ideal for a broad array of do-it-yourself projects around the home, garage, garden, and elsewhere. It protects coated items against moisture, acids, abrasion, corrosion, and skidding/slipping, and provides a comfortable, controlled grip. Plasti Dip remains flexible and stretchy over time, and will not crack or become brittle in extreme weather conditions. It has been tested and proven in temperatures from -30°F to 200°F.

A few of hours of prepping our cars and working in the beautiful and sunny Southern California weather made the club members hungry, so a trip to the Munchbox in Chatsworth was already on the agenda for lunch. Their specialty is the chili! From chili dogs, chili burgers, chili fries, to even a side of chilli — no one was disappointed!

After filling their stomachs, the club members headed back to finish the jobs that each had started earlier in the day. From subtle touches such as a blacked out grill surround, fuel door and Dodge lettering, to the more dramatic blacked out wheels. The modifications were a great success!

It was good day of trial and error for the club members who all pitched in and offered assistance. A real all for one club environment!
