    Default Anyone plasti-dip their mod?

    i helped do it to my friends car wheels and they turned out great! Peels off if you screw it up and I imagine it would turn out like a rubberized ego finish. Plasti Dip Protective Coating Products | Plasti Dip Protective Coating Products | Rubber Dip Coating

    I tried the spray version on a Vamo 2 but it did not last too long. Dipping it may last longer but you have to sand down the mod to allow it to stick to the metal better.

    This. If you don't give your mod a real rough finish (some brushed box mods *might* do OK) it will just peel off. I suppose that could be a good or bad thing though. If you don't like it, it's usually pretty easy to peel off.

    If you are going to go through the effort of repainting your mod, plastidip is not the answer.
    Plastidip is never the answer!

    You would probably have better results with that flex-seal stuff in a can. It has somewhat a rubbery feel to it.

    I agree with this 100%

    It is also very hard to coat something without drips. Otherwise, yes, it works well.

    I have tried this on a couple of mods and I can not get that stuff to stick for the life of me. Sanding, primer, etching prime nothing. Starts off great and and usually lets go on a edge or corner. Using the spray can stuff. I can make spray paint look good and be durable but not this stuff for some reason. Last one I did I actually went over it with superglue to avoid having to strip and repaint it. Looks good but the superglue makes it hard and slick... kind of defeats the purpose of rubber spray paint.

    I'll probably try it on my Panzer clone. I have some flat black left over from a project on my Jeep. I don't see why it wouldn't work. I used on the door hinges of my Jeep and has stood the test of time/car washes/trees.
