I like my interior I'm just wondering what everyone's thoughts on it is because everyone has their own opinion about things.

But with plasti dip on exterior pieces like bumpers, does it attract dirt and have more dirt or "fuzzies" for lack of a better word stick to it? I notice this with my interior and am contemplating doing my rear bumper with that or regular spray paint

My wheels with black dip. it honestly stays cleaner than my body paint. They dont attract the dirt like bedliner does.
