    so took off 2 year old derp from the runners bumpers today. best way was to soak in all natural orange paint remover for like 5 minutes then get a blade and it slides right off.

    Has any one tried the Rustoleum product similar to plasti dip? I looked all over for plasti-dip and couldn't find any so I decided to just try it. I want to dip my door handles because they are all fading and look pretty ugly.

    Yeah I checked Lowes/Home Depot/Walmart.

    The guy at Home Depot said they didn't have any Plasti Dip and told me that the rustoleum was nearly the same thing. It says on the can that it is peel able I'll give it a shot and report back I guess.

    Yep. Apparently, Plasti-dip is illegal in Canada. The reason is so damn expensive up here is because they had to reformulate it to meet some inane Canadian standards. I'm sure it's better for the environment n' stuff...but still. Up to $20 for a can? Yeesh.

    Like you, whenever I go down to the US I'll pick up a small case for $6/can at HD or Lowes.

    It's a great idea. Requires no sanding, looks great, and holds up great. I Plasti-Dipped mine and used Rustoleum Crystal-Clear Enamel over top. Its been over 2 months and still looks great

    So just wash it, apply plasti-dip then clear enamel and wala? How many coats did you do?
