My roommate recently developed an obsession with plastidip. It's an amazing tool, thinking about plastidipping some fender hashmarks on my Z

Does it peel, bubble? Is it affected by heat? I've never used the stuff, but several people on this site really seem to be in to it and are using it all many of their components. The pics always look pretty good. I just haven't heard anyone comment much on its durability.

it is very durable, some poeple have had it on there wheels for over 2 years and no problems. once it full cures its not gonna mess up unless you try to take it off. i havent noticed any problems. anytime you do see a problem you can always just add a little touch up and good as new. as for heat, it sat out in 110 degree weather all day and no problem at all

I'm seriously considering buying a whole car kit from dipyourcar.com

If you do a whole car, be sure to post it! I've been waiting for someone to do it.

I did my whole car, but wasn't thrilled with how it came out and peeled it off a few weeks later.

As for dipyourcar, . ordered from them, they were apparently backordered, but didn't bother to let anyone know that (despite already charging my CC.)

When I called to ask when it would ship, they said they didn't know.

Told them to cancel the order. Told me it was cancelled. Never saw the refund. Had to call them daily for a week or so to get them to actually process the refund.

Wound up buying my stuff through "awarehousefull.com" and then ordered the wagner sprayer through amazon.

Maybe they've gotten better (dipyourcar.com, that is) but this was only back in july.

Plasti dip is great, dipyourcar not so much (in my opinion).

I'm reminded looking at that picture. If you do the whole car, tape things up better than I did. I eventually debadged the rear, but the original plan had been to leave the SS logo and the gold in the bowtie.

It got dirty, there was no easy way to clean it off (trying to wash gently wasn't getting anything done) and then we got some heavy rains, and I swear the car was holding on to the water, enough to make it feel sluggish. Even after the heavy rains it was still really dirty.

After that I decided the grand experiment was over and peeled it off.

A word of caution, if you do the whole car, make sure you get enough coats on. I had some thin areas that took forever to remove (for thin areas, lots of soapy water & a clay bar make much easier work to remove it. slow, but easier)

I did my whole truck, but peeled it off a few days later and then a month later painted it satin black.
