RAF_S197 Plasti dip now has a clear coat. I believe it's called a glossifier

GreenPanther If you use clear coat it will make it harder to remove and negate the purpose of the plastidip.....removability. Why not just paint it rather than use plastidip? Or use the glossifier and have the best of both worlds.

Drof Sucof You dont have to worry about taping up too much. I plastidiped one of my cars completely, and all really had to tape up was the wipers. The key is during sprays keep separation from the part youre painting with a sharp edge.

Juicedz " Basically I'm trying to preserve the look and prevent the tackiness of it from collecting every bug in site on the freeway." I like the matte black not looking to go gloss black. I will probably do a couple more coats with the plastidip but its a long process taping off the front grill area 7-8 times.

Clear coat over plastidip

I've heard mixed reviews on this. I layed down four coats of plastidip on the front grill and want to seal it with clear coat (maybe 2 coats). Basically I'm trying to preserve the look and prevent the tackiness of it from collecting every bug in site on the freeway.
