I heard there is a sealer that you can put on it that keeps it on pretty good. You ever heard of that?

are you going for the flat black look? I'd pass on plasti for a body and go with mostaliner.

I just noticed your thread concerning Plasti Dip. That stuff is interesting. My Son mentioned it to me and sent me the links which I posted in a thread above. Let us know how your project turns out.

Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....

It comes off pretty easy. I plastidipped my TJ grill to see if I liked the look... about 20 minutes later, peeled it all off and just painted the grill black.

I also plastidipped all the badges on my wife's IS-250. If you mess up, just peel it off.

Actually, I think its a little more chip resistant than paint because its rubbery. Plus its easy to touch up.

If you want a more permanent and durable paint, monstaliner is your best bet.
