Their website says the brighter colors don't hold up to the uv as well as the darker colors.

same with any paint with no clearcoat. Plasticdip has surprised me. I only had to repaint one wheel, the caliper stuck on that side and the hot metal bits melted into the plasticdip. I just painted a few more layers and it was good as new.

I see many folks say it costs the same as paint to do. Paint prices can fluctuate ALLOT. How much have the people who have done it spent?

I did stripes on the magnum as a way to keep stone chips from the paint in a decorative way without a homosexual looking car bra. I just carried the stripes up onto the roof about 3 months ago to protect the roof from the crap that falls off of my bikes when they are on the roof rack. Its on the rims too. I have only had to redo the rim right below the gas filler because I overflowed trying to go to the nearest dollar. The hood has been on just over a year. the only fading I have is where I didn't get the spray perfect on the hood and there are pores in the rubber. It has a haze to it. I plan to take off that half of the hood to redo it.

What kind of surface prep is needed? Does it really just stick that well to paint?

I wouldnt recommend the solvent if you plan to remove the plastidip at a later time.
Friend of mine did his 2013 Chrysler 200. Hood and tail lights . I had real serious doubts about the lights but ....well, you CAN see the lights thru the painted on finish. And he peeled off the hood finish, just to prove his point to me,..........and then re did it. Pretty cool actually.

I used solvent (brake clean) on my painted rims so I had a clean surface. Guess I should have been more clear. I agree I would not use brake clean on your paint, but for wheels i do
