was thinking about it. would be a quick color change to white when it's warm as outside. Then peel it off for winter. Also looks to be good vs those bugs in forest rides.

I have a buddy that uses this stuff at work, pretty incredible how it works and its relatively cheap. Another buddy thinking about redoing his fairings with it. 1 can will go a long way, 2 cans should be safe but for that price might as well get 3

I does peel off yes. But its alot of work. It takes at least 5 coats for it to be durable. Ace hardware sells the colors local, home depot only sells flat black. If your still interested.

Photoshop it, and if you like it take it to Tony and he'll lay some nice paint down for ya.

I just think if you're gonna take the time to do it you might as well paint it. I mean, unless you are dead set on trying to keep the OEM paint. Also, when you tighten fairing bolts back on the bike it can twist the plasti-dip and break the seal. I attempted to plastidip my heel guards, layed it on per the instructions, did 4 coats, and let cure. Once I tightened the bolts it twisted it and broke the seal...

Just paint it. I've used both white and black to paint some wheels before and white did not look good. Very very dull and just doesnt look good. Also it's a pain in the to peel off from my experience with it, even when doing 3-4 coats like advised.

I just sprayed my chrome grille on my truck like 3 months ago.. It took about 1 can seeing as how I did about 5 coats (HEAVY COATS) every hour... here is a picture of the grille just to give you an idea..

Yeah I'm wondering also. I actually started googling it like 2 hours ago before I saw this thread. If you ever do it, post some pics up!

I havent used it for cosmetic looks on vehicles, but in many cases to weatherproof tools and electronics, with excellent results
