Default plasti dip yes or no

over the weekend I was looking at cheap ways to paint my jeep and rims, then plasti dip came up and I saw that it was peelable. so I went to the local hardware store and bought some, then put it on the wheels. then I was thinking how it held against mud? does anyone have it on their rig and if so how it held up. im trying to see if its worth painting the whole body. also I have some colors to choose from camo green or camo tan

Never used white, but I love the stuff. I have it on a few parts like grille and rims on a car and it has held up well.

Only plasti dip I ever heard of was used to coat tool handles. Same stuff?

I have seen it on a few rigs down here. I know of one personally and it has been on his jeep rims for over a year. The others were hondas

Wheels and deco pieces? Yes

Painting the entire jeep? I am going to say yes because I want to see pictures of how awful it will look.

I've painted wheels with the stuff and it looks and holds up great. With that said I doubt I would ever do a whole vehicle in it.

You're painting your hail damaged engine with plasti-dip?

My 5.9 zj. It's chipped front to back and down the whole drivers side.

I did the hood with rattle can and didn't think it looked to bad, figure I'll order a kit to do the whole thing.

I've had a few friends paint wheels, bumpers etc. There is a place online that sells gallon kits to use spray guns. The cars actually turn out pretty good. I may or may not paint my f250 with here soon...

Let's figure it out. I'd like to do the chevelle once the glass is in to cover the shitty paint job

Used it to paint my chrome bumpers. The stuff works great. I've even power washed it and taken it through automatic car washes.. not a flaw in it yet! And if it ever does get scratched or anything, you just peel it off and spray again.. good stuff!

What is the advantage to this? I've heard of people using it on all kinds of projects, but have never heard the advantage. It costs the same as paint. Why not just paint it? I hear of it gouging, tearing, and rolling. Seems like you would get all of those problems every time you rub a tree, branch, or rock.

It is fairly strong. Obviously it will rip and tear though. That site sells stuff to easily fix the scrapes and such though. Plus, if you don't like it, you can just peel it off.
