Weird Idea, must see

Okay so everyone likes plasti-dip or the idea of it. Everyone likes the idea of keeping their car in protection of rocks. Could you use the clear plasti-dip glossifier as sort of a clear bra to protect your paint?
Don't be harsh, just had a thought.

The clear plasti-dip aka Glossifier doesn't work. I mean it does, but it looks like poop. So I mean yes it could work, but it wouldn't look nice.

I figured it would take away the shine the paint has. But I've never dealt with it so it was just an idea. It gets messed up you just clean it and spray over.

Well yes, that's the beauty of plasti-dip. You can just peel it off and start over.

Temporary bra for autoX or long trips maybe? Just spray it on the day before then peel it off the day after?

I have no desire to do this. My front already has rock chips. It was just for someone else who wanted protection for a cheaper price.
