I read somewhere while doing a google search that doing that makes it hard to take off. (Not as hard as normal paint) But it doesn't peel off anymore, it chips off.

But then i found this:
http://www.plastidip.co.uk/eStore/in...oating&stage=1

I don't know if that would make it easier to peel off or not. But seeing as it was on the plasti-dip website who knows??

you can paint over it. I saw a post on a G35 forum where the guy painted bronze and clear over black plastidip and it still peels off...probably a good bit messier though, paint crumbles and stuff.

I think you meant, "So who is going to plastidip their penis AGAIN?"

white plastidip makes for great socks! I think I'm going to try this on a car I have that has its weather stripping chipping away. the metal is showing. Does this have a rubber/plastic look once dried? cause if so, it would look better than spray paint.

thanks

^^ It looks like black vinyl once it dries, it has the texture (Feel) of rubber but from a distance it looks just like the plastic accents they stick on cars
