As per tittle,how do you clean a plasti dip car?Is there a special chemical soap for plasti dip?

Heard it is easier to maintain with a layer of lacquer over it. If not, seems it is sticky and hard to wash.

Lacquer? ohmy.gif ...never heard people did that before tongue.gif

I guess,water and a little bit light scrubing with soft sponge will do maybe?

Bro., not too sure but some say okay, some say a bit soft and can scratch easily. Probably depends on what you spray on.
For wheels because will get brake dust, probably need to clean more often. If it cakes on will be difficult to remove and for plastic dip if use force, once tear it comes off. Will send you a link for more reading....
