    Changing the color of your car

    I heard Plasti Dipping your car is pretty cheap and peels off without leaving any paint behind. Who has done this? I'm thinking about changing the black trims, weather strips, and stripes on my car to blaze blue. Well my question is... is how hard is it to put on and remove as well as how long will it last?

    I did it. Worked fine. Get it done at a shop, or buy their kit if you intend to do the whole car.

    It'll last quite awhile. Easy to do.

    Yeah. I plan on doing the whole thing. Does plasti dip work on the interior as well. I may get my upper dash and other stuff done in the same color as well.

    I have also used plasti-dip ALOT. Very easy to use. Peels off if needed. And if you get a rock chip it is easy to repair.

    After swapping the stupid hood scoop on this, I plan on plasti-dipping the whole car Fire belly orange with a gold metallizer mixed in.
