I was thinking more about a full dip. My car is up next! Black matte maybe? Or white matte?

Also A LOT cheaper than a paint job or a full vinyl wrap.

I Plastidip'd my brothers wing mirrors on his car using the rattle can as i was wanting to experiment.

Looked great and was really easy to reply - i put 4 light coats on with a heavier 5th coat.

However after a few days stone chips has sliced and punctured the coating and the white came back through.

I dont know if the professional stuff would be better where you use the airless gun, or if a primer is needed.

I've been tempted to buy a can to spray my chrome renault badges in gloss black to match the gloss black font end and rear.

it did. I used there 300ml spray can. Not sure if the professional mix one would be any better. But still chipping after 2 days isnt very good.

I never used any plastidip primer, but dont see that stopping the chipping.

I might give it another try.
