plastidip vs vinyl

people ask if you can tell a diff in the plastidip and the vinyl and I think no not really.
but you decide.
middle stripe is plastidip and gills are vinyl.

Hows the plastidip holding up compared to the vinyl? Any noticable wear or fade?

i have to redo it every so often
I wash the car about every week or two and have only had to redo two of the spots on it in the past year.

It is great for figuring out what you want to do but is not a final solution.

I have had it on my car for over a year and it holds up great and looks great

From your pics, I can't tell the difference. Maybe in person but prob unlikely just on the way it looks. I know plastidip feels different than vinyle but who cares about that.
Ur stripes look great btw, and it's a really good way to try different t th gs and figure out what u want. I think I'm gonna do the same soon as it gets consistently warmer.

you can even do lettering if you take your time at it.
the best thing is if you mess up you just peel and redo.
