Default The Plasti-Dip craze!

People have been getting creative with Plasti-Dip, and I have an idea that will top them all. I am considering doing my whole truck.

Here is the truck. I removed the "sullivan sport" decals, but the others are too dried out to remove. They take paint with it.



Here is a dent that I would fill prior. Need advice here first.


Here is what I think it would look like after applying black Plasti-Dip. Kind of a fail cause I can't get rid of the shine, but its an idea.



Wheels too!


So, I want opinions, prices of plasti-dip cans, and an estimate of how many cans will be needed. I will be rhino lining the inside of my bed too. Another thing I would need to know is what to buy to fill the dent on my fender.

Oh yea, I've got a polished tool box, that I would spray too.

Sun will fade it and as easy as it peels off, scrubbing it while washing it will probably peel it off.

Not that I am going to do it, but why does this make you not want to buy a used vehicle? Do you have any idea how easy it is to peel this stuff off?
