Damn I don't have good pics but I spray plastidipped a tin cover from a cookie can and let it dry for about 1-2 weeks. I then sprayed over it with a red spray paint, some cheapo automotive type paint. It went on pretty damn nice.
The finish became a bit shiny but not like clearcoat shiny (without a clearcoat what do you expect? right?) I then proceeded to try to scratch it with a key like hard keying pressure and it did scratch the paint but nothing like the damage your car would take if it was done to the car. It cut all the way down to the metal and barely exposed it.
I scratched a different part of the can that didn't have plastidip or paint on it, the metal gets scratched pretty noticeably. It seems like this can protect against that too.
I will try to see if peeling it is any harder on Monday since I don't have it with me. I forgot it at work because I was showing my coworker and we were trying to experiment with it
