I used it on my wheels to test a new color before having them painted. It was perfect for that...showed me what they would look like without a big cost. It looked good for a while but was peeling after about 6 weeks. It may be that the peeling is more about my skills applying the product than the product itself. I'm just trying to make it until I take the wheels off for winter at which time I will remove the plasti dip and get the wheels painted.

Depends on what you're talking about dipping, but I've seen it on Kia's and other shit too because it's so cheap.

I think it can look OK on wheels maybe, but would never do the whole car.

P.S. I did not find the dip your car people to be at all helpful or responsive to my questions about the application (they invite email questions, but did not reply to any of mine), but I am still glad I tried the stuff.

Plastidip ruined my life! If you want to use it, just use it for small things like an emblem or side gil.

I tried plastidipping my window trims about 3 months ago and it was a disaster.. I still have plastidip under the door trim after I took it off. Its a pain to get out completely.

I lost my job b/c of plastidip

Moral: dont let a $6 dollar can ruin your life.
