Do they make a gloss black Plastidip or is it all flat?

Plasti dip comes in a variety of colors, all of which are flat. However plasti-dip does sell a "clear" but it's complete crap and even if you get it to apply it's still a flat clear

Bezels. I ordered a second set of them so I can take off the plastidip and apply paint.

You can spray gloss clear on top of the plastidip, no problem.

Just remember,
NEVER SPRAY BUG & TAR REMOVER ON PLASTIDIP. It makes it melt.

Just did my bumper. Think I'm going to pick up some thin vinyl pin striping to finish the edges. Kind of wondering how red pin stripes might look.

I might try for perfect edges again in a few weeks but figured I'd try adding some piping for now and see how I like it and how the plastidip holds up. I'm going to change my bowtie to either all black or black with red outline. I guess I'll go with the bumper piping to match that but here's my quick mockup. Red on the left and black on the right.

I still can't believe I spray painted my new car just a couple of days after making the first payment but I like the bumper way better than it was stock

Red piping looks good, black doesn't even show up.

Can you paint over plasti dip? Then if you don't like it, just peel it off?

I am wanting to do the rear fascia but I am concerned with the edge being "crisp." I am afraid that I will pull the edges as I lift the tape after the final coat.

My plan would be to do a light coat, quickly pull tape, retape, do a heavier coat, quickly pull tape, retape, then a final coat, and quickly pull tape- this way I don't have a thick overspray onto the tape... any ideas or thoughts...?

I've done my wheels, but it's rubbing off now. Every time I was wash my wheels I'll start seeing the silver. I really like the flat black!
