    I need to see some pics in about a month cause this can't stand the test of time. Mine as well just strip and reapply the dip for that sure thing long lasting finish.

    Any one ever put down the plasi-dip then paint over it. On something like the radio trim? I want to change the color but if I dont like it I would like to remove it

    It can be done but is a pain to remove. Dipyourcar core has a video of it on YouTube.

    for a "sure thing long lasting finish" PlastiDip is not doing it right to begin with: if PlastiDip was sure and long lasting I wouldn't have to worry about patching cause I lightly nicked it with my boot heel; so, i don't feel too bad about it

    when I have the money to actually do it right, I'll be calling up the local Line-X guys. Not everlastingly stripping and reapplying PlastiDERP

    I never said it was permanent, I said "long lasting" which people report years of maintenance free usage of dipped items. If you're in a situation where the dipped surfaces will take some abuse then you're correct, plasti dip isn't the right thing for you to begin with. However when an item is dipped correctly (proper cleaning and drying before application, proper environment to apply the dip, properly laid coats, ample dry time between coats and ample evenly laid coats) you can get a solid dip that should last even years in some cases. Just sounds to me like you didn't do a good job the first time. It's one of those things you know when you have right and from the sounds of it you just didn't get it right.

    Line-X is a different story, it's permanent, expensive and leaves a ugly finish.
    And it belongs in a different thread.
