    I thought if you did a flat finish it will be ruined very quickly by bugs and birds. Since there is no clear on it a bird poop will eat through it in a few minutes. Same with bugs. Plus a matte finish seems like much more maintance.

    Gah why is everyone obsessed with plastidip haha - if you can really just peel it off that doesn't sound too good if someone wants one that will last and not peel off if someone walks by it lol
