Entire Jeep Plasti-dipped?

Kinda wanted to see if anyone has Plasti-dipped their entire jeep. Or even a section of it and if its held up to some decent abuse and time.

Plastidip may chip easily due to rocks and road debris, unless you have a street jeep so it can last for a year.

Once you decide to take it off, it becomes hard only because it gets into every crack and you'll never get it all off.

I did my entire Jeep also. The trick is do not feather it. tape off areas so it is on heavily, then it will all peel off. The nice thing about this is that if you have some come off, trim off the loose stuff lightly with a blade and spray it on again. do not cut deep so you do not scratch the paint if you are worried about it.

There's a dealership near me (who I'm sure charges way too much) that'll plasti-dip your vehicle. They have GCs on their site. Gives you an idea. http://dippedbydiehl.com/

Best thing would be to search dipyourcar videos, there's a few Jeeps on there.

But, the stuff is supposed to be very user friendly. Just make sure you spray it on thick so that if you decide to take it off, it'll come off easier.
