Well then I'm waiting for someone to also plastidip their whole head, rob a bank, return home, and then remove the plastidip.

Yeah no gray unless you mix white and black yourself. Then you'd have to spray it and I don't know what nozzle you'd use or if it would have to be thinned. I thinned some with touline just to experiment and it still cured. Then again perhaps it doesn't need to be sprayed.
But out of the can it is harmless to paint. I just know that it sucks up dust and stains rather easily.

Did you just use a hose and soap and water? Or did you use a pressure washer?

I just saw this stuff on Youtube. Endless possibilities. Banks, 7-11's, Drive bys......lol

All kidding aside could this be used for a winter/salt protector. Spray it on your wheels or rocker panels? Be nice if they made a transparent shade.

Default Re: Plastidip!

ok so how would u recommend others to do this process?
Buy the cans of plasti-dip
Wash the truck thoroughly.
Let dry.
Mask off areas.
Spray sections.
Let dry.

Peel off when u no longer want it on?

So this stuff sticks pretty good and won't damage your paint and you can peel it off and everything will be good as new?
