I started dipping

After reading all the threads about plasti dip. I brought a can and it was a blast and I like the results. More to follow.

I'm about to do the same thing. We did my son's wheels on his jeep and I was going to start with covers and move to forks etc. How is it holding up on the covers that get hot?

Check with Swomack as to longevity, he has been using it for a while.

I've had it on my truck wheels for over 2 years. Here in Ohio we get all the good stuff in the winter too. Holding up strong

My son's got a BMW 1150RT-P former police bike - black and white. He wants to plasti-dip the white parts red.

Great! Thanks. I was curious about the heat on the covers. I may do mine this Sunday.

Yeah my son has about 10,000 miles on the jeep since we did them. Lots of off road, mud, rocks etc... still look exactly like they did when we dipped them.
