Yes,I've thought of doing the plasti dip..... I'm 50/50 on that or the vinyl.... I've ran into people who have wrapped their cars and have told me to go that way instead of dipping it!

Re: Vinyl wrap!!!

Maybe just take a pic of your rig, post it and request the Photoshop experts to give it a go

Re: Vinyl wrap!!!

I would have to disagree. Plasti-dip is allot easier to apply then vinyl, its easier to maintain then vinyl and its allot easier to touch up then vinyl.

Re: Vinyl wrap!!!

Does plastidip come in a gloss option, or do you need to follow-up with a gloss clear over the std matte finish?

Re: Vinyl wrap!!!

plasti-dip sells a glossifier spray that you put on top of the matte base.
