gloss clear over dip? Not sure, probably just glossy. No less permanent.

Got some manual hubs from a friend instead of the ADD crap that means my front axles are always rotating. Restoring them and then here I come better MPG!

Iv done gloss clear over dip , it definitely adds some shine . But also makes it much more of a pita to remove . Also , it keeps the dip from getting as dirty as it usually does without it.

I went ahead and tried it on our spatula works pretty good! Just gotta put the plastidip on pretty heavy first. Don't wanna take it off anytime soon- just didn't want to mess up sanding and priming until I've had more practice :). Man... This stuff is turnng out to be an awesome base for other painting projects, though

I was reading about that... Not available locally- but I looked it up some other places and people were saying it just didn't look as nice and deep. Plus- well, I'm impatient. I just got my black lights in and my grill didnt match the way I wanted :) eventually I'd like to do it properly with automotive paint professionally... But this is fine for now.
