Plasti dip durability

I have seen a lot of people using plasti dip. I have watched a lot of YouTube videos. Going to cover my chrome this weekend. So how durable is the stuff once it is on honestly? Do I have to worry about reapplying it regularly? I want to cover the chrome but am going to put clear on the front bumper and rocker panels. Thanks for any advice.

Re: Plasti dip durability

its not nearly as durable in places where the coat isn't consistent.

I've got a few spots (door handles, wheels) where its starting to peels, but thats 100% my fault and its easy to touch up with some paint thinner and a brush.

Re: Plasti dip durability

The key to plastidip is to do a lot of coats. It'll help thicken up the dip as well as help it adhere better and make it easier to peel off if you ever want to remove it. If it does start to "chip" a little bit, just touch it up with more dip! It's a great product.

^+1

Its all about the number and thickness of coats. I would also recommend using a few coats or glossier on top.

Make sure to post up some pics of your project. Good luck and happy Dippin!!

Re: Plasti dip durability

Go for it! Worst case, you can always just peel it off. The stuff is awesome
