Plasti-dipped my dash trim. Bought a can of yellow, thinned with naptha, popped out the panels, sprayed with a Preval spray bottle thingy then two coats of plasti-dip glossifier.

How well does it work on the actual body of the car? Any discoloration after removal?

Not that I've heard. It's just spray-on rubber; don't see why it should.

Does plastidip leave any sort of residue? or anything like that?

That trim looks awesome! Did you do the door panels as well? I thought about doing them but figured they'd get scratched by finger nails and stuff getting in and out of the car. Also thought about painting them but I'd be in the same boat.

I did plastidip my trim around my shifter yesterday and speedo bezel. Bezel didn't turn out as well though.

Thinking of plastidipping my xm antenna any suggestions for it? Or problems with connecting to xm? White would be the color.

How easily does this scratch/peel?

Is there any plasti-dip that can give me a glossy black finish?

Negative. I actually peeled the first try off cause there was a small section that didn't come out right. No damage or discoloration at all.

I probably won't do the panels for those very reasons; too much rubbing with the arm and such.

If you don't like the bezels, peel it off and try again. I've done the trim twice already to get it right.

that's where I got the glossifier plastidip. Only place to get it I think. They will mix a custom color also I think.

I'll let you know! It's got about 6 coats; 4 plastidip and 2 glossifier plastidip so it's pretty thick.

Plastidip is matte but dipyourcar.com sells a glossifier coating that glosses it up.
