Paint or plasti dip

i have a little extra money laying around and i want to make my jeep look as good as possible. there is a ton of scratches and some bondo marks so i was thinking get some oem touch up paint and sand that down and paint it. my other option is plasti dip i like the durability of it and sorta protects scratches the problem is i love a shiny gloss finish and plasti dip wont give the effect to it so what do you all think restore paint or plasti dip it

Search plastidip on this forum. You'll find plenty of threads.

From what I read, plastidip is a temporary thing. It seems that it can be removed with some easy effort.

Paint, on the other hand, is considered to be more permanent. Another recent poster here is looking at $5K for a paint job. Maybe more.

Good Luck, L.M.
