spraypaint + clear coat vs plasti dip?

Postby XTPN » Fri Jan 15, 2016 7:36 pm

Going to order an OEM diffuser (https://www.lancershop.com/customer/ima ... =P&id=5899)
soon so just thinking of how I would go about painting it. I want to achieve a matte black finish, just wondering which will provide more protection; normal black spray paint(w/o clear coat) or plasti dip? The diffuser will be coming in a black primer coat.

i`m a fan of the dip, easy to use, done in about 3 hours.

Same here. But do you feel like plastidip is hard to clean sometimes? Or maybe the surface I sprayed onto was not prepared properly

Dip seems to retain a lot of water spots too

I use Dupli Colour Custom Wrap when I dip, I find it a lot nicer to use and it also lasts a lot longer than the Plasti Dip brand itself (Speaking from experience, not an expert)

It's all down to personal preference :)
