Ok after watching a few videos I will say I was wrong, never tried to peel mine, however looks like its pretty easy to peel. I think I may try some on my vehicles.

Can't afford paint, plasti-dip is outta the question. Got the well worn/sleeper look going now.

Sorry if this has already been covered, but how is the sun fade on this stuff? I'm going to grab some and do my wheels but wanted some real user input on it before I did my whole jeep.

Yeah thats what I've been reading, I guess I'll do my wheels and see how it looks in a few months, if it's still nice and black the whole jeep is getting it in a neon green I think... Or maybe black... Or od green or orange.... He'll I guess I can peel it once a month untill I find just the right color lol

I think I am gonna do flat black on my wheels. I searched their forum cause I wanted to find out if it would hold up to Bleech White when I clean my tires. I guess at $30 it isn't too bad if it doesn't hold up.
