plasti-dip vs. bedliner

Okay so I've heard that the plast-dip stuff will peel and shrink over time in the sun. This is a major concern as I live in Florida.

I was thinking of doing the rims (factory steelies), badges, and maybe bumpers and fender flares. The plastics aren't super bad just yet but they're on their way and I think it would look awsome. Here's a pic of the libby in question.
I'm looking for honest opinions here ladies and gents. Lemme know what you think!

Plasti dip is probably not what you want to use. Would recommend giving Monstaliner a go, you can find a lengthy thread in the vendors section up top on the main page. It is UV stable (most are not) and you can call 'em and get a sample to see how it looks up close. Multiple colors are now made.

Personally wouldn't do rims with that kind of product, wire brush those and just spray can them. Easier to maintain & won't throw a balance issue into the mix.

Not on the wheels, unless you want new wheels soon
Not only would it look like crap it would make them hard to balance etc , plus curb them or hit a rock and it comes off then
Just paint the wheels

Gotta say I love the texture and look of the Monstaliner, sure does beat the herculiner and the other store bought brands. I rolled it on with the supplied rollers and it spread real easy. For the entire roof with two thick coats I used a half of a gallon.

I followed the directions and made sure i didn't miss a single spot of clear coat that needed scuffing. Also instead of using the supplied scuffing pad I used some 60 grit sand paper.

Scuffed up


Had some rust by the third brake light so I painted it with Chassis Saver

Nice! Yea I get herculiner really cheap through work but after doing more research I found its crap. Guess I gotta suck it up and drop the $ on monstaliner. Think a gallon will do all my plastics? Front and rear bumper plus fenders, rockers, and door trim?

Their website says,"60 sq ft per gallon in 2 coats. 1 gallon kit completes any 2 door Wrangler Jeep tub or 6 foot pickup bed." I would say a gallon should do the job. They have install directions for plastics at there website..

Good choice dumping the herculiner and choosing Monstaliner so much better...

I plasti-dipped some rims on my 98 328i and it was fine. I ended up getting new rims but after a year on them they were fine

i was planning on doing mine with monstaliner but i think im going with tintable raptor. there are no monstaliner colors that work for me. there are some extra prep steps with the plastics but doesnt seem like a big deal.
