its gonna be hard not to get tons of lines in it. see if they sell it in gallon size and get a cheapo spray gun and try to do it that way, i think results will be better

My only concern is weight. Rubber is heavy stuff. But I am not sure what plastidip is.

That stuff looks awesome done right. Never seen a focus dipped before but do it right and it'll turn some heads.

You'll only add what's in the can, depending on how many you use.

My co-worker just did it to his Nissan Altima, turned out great... and the best part was peeling all of it off after he got sick of it.
