There's a video on YouTube from DipYourCar where they weigh the plastidip after peeling it off of an A4. 6 coats of plastidip, which is roughly 4-5 gallons of plastidip, only added about a pound and a half of weight. Very light stuff. Here's the video for anyone interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVeMU-o8Lsk

shadowzfire Yo Killer Project You Did. Also Just Wondering Any One Know How Many Gallons Of Plasti Dip You Would Need For A ZX3?

S0C0nFused OK! Ya, the worry is I would not be able to get in on thick enough to peel off and having it jamb the threads. Will just stick with paint.
Thanks!

The plasti-dip would have to strip off cleanly and completely. I would not be using a rattle can in this application, rather a small brush. What'cha think? Plasti-dip get the job done?
I wouldn't do that, but that's just me. Plasti-dip peels off easily if you put a few coats on it so it's nothing permanent. I had to redo my front bumper section because I messed it up. it peeled right off and I redid it just like that. if you plan on removing the plasti-dip each time then redoing it, then go for it. I wouldn't use a brush though. the spray can works fine.
