From what I understand they're not having really good results with the florescent colors. I guess they're having fading issues. Supposedly they're just like a tint that has to be sprayed over a white base and they fade pretty quick cause they're not a true colored dip or something like that.

Your my guinea pig . I've been wanting to do my Jeep for a long time. What are your thoughts on durability in the sun here? I can't seem to find a clear answer.

So far I've got no reason to worry about it as long as you're not using the florescent colors from what I've read. Time will tell though and if things go well, the truck won't be around for me to even know... LOL But from what I've read from people in places like Texas, Az. and here there doesn't seem to be any fading issues. Seems like the biggest concern is in the hot climates you get out beyond about 2.5-3 years it can get difficult to peel off due to being brittle. It'll still come off but it comes off in smaller pieces making it harder rather then just peeling in like one solid panel piece.

Again though, that's all from what I read. My only first hand is the spray I did on the beadlock rings.

If anything, go grab a can and paint the fenders on your trailer or something similar like this week and get the testing going... It'll cost you like $8 and would be a good test to see how it works. Make sure you do at least 4 coats, the more the better for peeling it off down the road.

Found this JK done in black, but I want to do my whole Jeep in a copper color. From what I gather, I would do 4-5 coats flat black and then use the copper color enhancer to get that color. I may try a small amount like you said.

Yeah, I haven't really read much into the metalics and more exotic colors they're doing now. I'm starting off just plain red, see how it goes and then next time, if there is a next time, maybe I'll get creative and see how crazy I can get. Do they offer that copper in gallons or just cans?

my grill has held up good after 6 months and 10k miles. some chemical or sap got on a spot near the headlight, but I will just soften it up with some alcohol and respray that area.

The copper is not actually a color, its an enhancer....It adds coppertone to your base color. So I could do black base (from gallons) and then basically take the coppertone (can) and go over the dip. At least from what I understand.
