Refurb my grill!

So my grill are ripping on certain areas of the mask. I wanted to totally redo the mask and have a fresh look to it.

I want to re-coat the mask in plasti-dip on the rubber parts and paint the frame with liquitex fluoresent green spray paint.

Questions:
1) how many layers of spray paint on the frame should I use?
2) should I prime or sand the frame first before spraying?
3) how many layers of plasti dip should I use?
4) should I coat the frame with some sort of protector after spray painting it?

So how will this work? Any tips or tricks?

I can't talk to all of your questions, but I have used spray on Plasti-Dip. If you use Plasti-Dip, you will want to start with a very light dusting on the first coat. DO NOT try and overdue it on the first pass. Odds are the first coat will not even completely cover the area, but this is fine. Continue to add, at least, 3 coats. You can spray on the 2nd and 3rd layers a little thicker because the first dusting gives the last couple coats more to adhere to. I would not recommend adding anything else to the Plasti-Dip. By it's nature, it is made to flex. I have not done it personally, but others have said that adding anything else just absorbs into the Plasti-Dip or it will create a rigid coat or shell on the outside and will defeat the purpose of the flexibility of the Plasti-Dip and it will probably just crack anyway. Plasti-Dip only comes in a few colors. I know they sell it in a bulk can that comes with tinters that you can use to make a custom color, but since this is a bulk and does not come in it's own aerosal can, you will have to use an air brush. This creates a whole set of other issues as you will have to thin the mix to get it throught the air brush. I don't have any expertise on that.

Sounds good, will try that. I'm just getting the aerosol because its more convenient.

But no need to prime or finish or the rubber/bottom area of the mask?

Dont prime or finish bottom of the mask...Plastidip is a finished product out of the can.

Quit reviving threads! It was almost three months since the thread was last used! Just stop!
