It heals up great. Did exactly what I wanted it to do and was really cheep.

P.S. If you want to donate that old splitter to the SnoopyAce foundation, we'd gladly accept
It was tedious but didn't take nearly as long to do as you'd think it would. Maybe a half hour.

Haha yea I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the splitter yet. It's pretty beat up.

But will plastidip prevent rock chips? Or will the rock just cut straight through the plastidip and still chip the paint?

I'm curious, 'cause this sounds like something fun to do for trips

Nope. That was Utah I think. We didn't go through New Mexico.

I'm wondering the same thing. I still worry about being able to just peel it off with no residue or anything...the tape was easy and didn't leave anything. And only cost a few bucks.

Plastidip cures as a rubber coating (a pretty durable one after a few coats especially). I'd assume a rubber coating would be more protective against rocks than tape which is basically paper with an adhesive backing. Both are good options for temporary paint protection, but I guess it's just a matter of preference. At about 5:40 in the video he hits it with a pressure washer and nothing happens. https://www.dipyourcar.com/pages.php?pageid=1

Denis, maybe you can get the mods to change the title to your thread. (since all the folks want to talk about tape)

What ever you do never use that Road Wrap crap. I put it on my car for the drive from LA to Phoenix. Driving through the desert sand and small rock got under it and scratched the paint. Some of the Ventura guys use a spandex bra. Doesn't look bad and it works. They used them on the drive to Super Chevy show last month.

Oh yea. Actually had a lady ask me if it was some kind of test car lol.

Is cool tough. Once you tell them why you did it they say "oh that's a good idea!"

I would tape then plastidip over it. Red on black would look better than red on that blue.
I love your car Denis, that splitter is so sick!!
