Brodie Halfhill posted his plasti-dipped iHy pure. No mention of the durability yet, but it looks nice.

The problem with plastidip adhesion can be remedied by prepping the surface with spray adhesive.
Why...just why...would anyone do this?So many other cosmetic treatments that could be done...hydrodips, patinas, heat treatments, annodizing....Why bother with something so cheap looking?

Not really. It can still be removed fairly easy. You just have to clean the adhesive off, too. Once plastidip's applied, most people want to maintain the rubberized feel. Spray adhesive helps maintain the longevity of the intended use.
I looked into plasti dip but in the end I decided to send my RDA off to get a cerakote finish with a couple of firearm and paintball parts. Only cost me about $7 bucks a part and it'll last a helluva longer time than plasti dip.
was kind of wondering this too. i have sprayed wheels with plasti dip before and they came out good but a mod has alot of handling and it would seem to rub off with handling. ive sprayed egos and other smaller tube mods with a rubberized paint used for cars found at local auto part stores called "rubberized under body coating" used for frames and fender wells. after a quick sand with 200-500 grit to scuff it up wipe down with acetone or rubbing alcohol and about 2-3 very light coats it came out great. just tape off threads and vents before spraying and suspend it freely to get coverage on all surfaces and you are golden.
I'm still going to have to suggest cerakote. At least it won't come off. I'd hate to inhale any particles that flaked off after using paint or plasti dip.
