Then it came to me.. Plasti-dip. So I did a couple Google searches on whether or not this had been done...
I found RC and real Car forums have been doing this for years. Mainly to waterproof their ECU's, Servos, all the little electronic bits.
In the Car forums I've mainly seen it used on rims, trim, and other cosmetic features.
The reason I bring up the cosmetic aspects is because this proves that it can stand up to the test of time..
I mean if it stays on a car your driving around in the elements..well you see what I mean.
So I figured, "What the hell, I'll give it a shot"
I started with my Gun Kit. (Easier and cheaper to replace)
It was a great success!
-A couple small cheap paintbrushes
-Some popsicle sticks
DANGER! Plasti-Dip in liquid form is extremely flammable. The vapors from it are also flammable and harmful.
Make sure you are in a well ventilated area while working with this stuff.
A respirator and some gloves are your friends
First stir up your Plasti-dip with a popsicle stick
Get your paint brush out and put a even layer over most of the chip. You want to avoid the LEDs, and power terminals for obvious reasons. Some kits have a poteniometer on them to speed or slow things down.. Avoid that as well.
Wait 30 Mins in between layers and put 3-4 layers on there.
Now wait 8 hours and let it dry. The can says 4 hours so I doubled that time... just in case.
That's it. Simple yet effective. You could probably use liquid electric tape and achieve the same results.
