Its cool till it starts peeling off like a sunburn.

Ask my friend.

Why not use real paint?

well, to be honest, I painted my front grille with plasti-dip and it has help up very nicely. few nics in it from the ungodly louisiana bugs we have but other than that it really has help up well. for one, my compressor is shot and i dont have proper ventalation to spray it at home, nor do I have the heat source to cure it like a normal paint booth.

That's how my granddad always did his with no issues. Is that the garage in the edge of the 2nd picture?? That thing must be huge! I'd kill to have a big shop on a nice piece of land.

yeah it's nice.I had that building built and operated my welding business out of it for many years.now it's just full of jeep and harley stuff as well as my tools and equipment.it is sitting on a 400 acre farm that I grew up on.it is heaven to me.I consider myself very lucky and have no desire to be anywhere else

I may have to take that into consideration. I worked in a fab/body shop so I know how to do prep work (masking, taping, sanding, etc.) its just my only problem is its my daily so if I leave it sitting up I cant get to work. I may if the weather is nice the next couple days try and get to do it. biggest issue is I live in a "residential" area so im not sure how people around me would feel about having paint particals hitting there house since paint floats forever and sticks where ever it lands.

thanks..it had a ton of clear on it so the paint was pretty much protected..but yeah,that was a jeep we did for my wife and she didn't even want to drive it on a dirt road and get it dirty..Needless to say,we sold that one for a killer price..
