Default plasticdip vr. paint

Why would one use plastic dip over paint? Does it hold up better to the elements than paint? Thanks Bobby

hey, great question.. well plasti-dip is a great alternative, depending whatn you are doing of course. it is a temporary, or permanent addition. the plasti dip can be peeled off once dry if you do not like it, as paint can not. So for example if you wanted to see what your truck looked like with stripes, or something, then mask off, spray desired color plastidip, let dry remove tape... if you no likey peel er off and its back to new, ]
hope this helps
*edit* and it does hold up well to elements ( not as good as paint imo) but hey, ive had my rims done for 3 years now, and use them year aounf, snow, summer heat, mud sticks and rocks in hunting season, and they still look great

It also would seem doable by the average do-it-yourselfer enthusiast.

OK, so where can I find it in assorted colors. I'v checked around locally and can't find the colors that I want to use. Like the idea of peeling it off if you don't like the finished job or screw it up. Thanks for the info. Bobby

basically anything bedsides white or black you have to order from their website. I've seen a few colors in stores, but hardly any. they have like, "create a color" type options as well for spray guns.
