Just a thought ! Has anyone tried to paint over the plastic dip? Also it looks like it has a textured finish.

Anyone have pictures of a bumper that has been sprayed with the white?

How's this stuff hold up to the elements and rocks/debris?

Garage
Plastidip

Hey Guys Ill Tell You This.. I Plastidiped My Back Front And Grill Surround... Back Is Holding Up Like A Champ... I've Had To Redo My Grill, And The Front Bumper Is Getting Pretty Dinged Up And Will Have To Probably Be Redone Soon... My Problem Is That It Looks Great. Is Cheap, And Replaceable... But If Im Gonna Have To Keep Redoing It Its Gonna Get Old Fast... Does Anyone Know Of A Way To Combat The Issue Of Rock Chips ? Does A Clear Coat Help Possibly ?
