Cheap. Easy. Can remove it if you don't like it or leave it forever.

NOMUGGLE Has anyone ever plasti-dipped a tub?

sonofabeach I'd go with rattlecan bedliner on wheels over Plasti-Dip. Seems like it would be more durable there.

So far ive just done my hood and my friends wheels. I did my grill with bed liner.

s3nt3nc3d I used it to do the rubber grab handle on my dash (Krylon Fusion will not fully cure on that piece due to it being rubber)--I intend to do my entire dash in it when I can afford to. Krylon Fusion has chips and scuffs...the PlastiDip has held up impressively well.

I also use it when making snake hooks for my reptile hobby.

As I understand it, less prep makes it easier just to peel off. Many exterior parts and interior as well are done on my jeep with no probs whatsoever.

Its perfect on wheels Idk about pople who take their jeep off road. It wouldnt hold up to being scrapped on the side of rocks.

But im gonna do my wheels soon. i dont like the gloss black

Snowbum well first i tried it on my brother tacoma to be sure that it works lol, i put multiple coats because the thicker it is on there the easier it will peel off in one piece.

TnDz TJ It is VERY durable... I have had it on my front bumper since June last year. I just decided to strip it and redo with undercoating after a few impacts with rocks and trees on the trails. It was tough to get off with a stripping wheel on my 4.5" angle grinder because I prepped it well...

If you spray direct on chrome, it will peel off. BUT!!!!!! you must start it first... until then.. it will stick well to chrome. I have my wife's 07 Wolfsburg Edition Jetta chrome grille done in Plasti-Dip for 2 years now with no problems.

Hammerwalk Use plastic-dip to mark your tools too. Buy the stuff that is a liquid then dip the handles into it. Most of my tools have hot pink nail polish markings on them. Stuff is awesome.
