    We all know that rubberized coatings have become vastly popular in the automotive world today, so I thought id share this... mostly because Eastwood is a very good company, based out of Pennsylvania, USA and any kind of paint and automotive coatings are their specialty and they strive on high quality: here's a short video of the product and theres more on YouTube. The reason I came across this was because im in the market for rubberized coatings to paint the roof and wheels on my GF's 1997 Land Rover Discovery in the near future, but this Eastwood elastiwrap seems like a better, more cost effective option

    99.00 a gallon is twice the price of a standard color. Elastidip is also still 20.00 more than gallon of DYC exclusive color. I would take a look at this thread that's going on over on the DYC forum, it has some interesting pics and a video as well about the peeling issues it may or may not have.
    If it were me I would stick with the proven product that has more long term use testing.
    I've dipped three cars so far and countless other things around the house so I'm fairly familiar with PD.
