Steps won't hold up as well if you boots are stepping on them. Only thing done on my 6.4 is my front oval in red as you can see in my sig picture.

Here is some work I have done with it though

I keep forgetting to pick up a can of this stuff, but I'm about to hit Home Depot and get some. Going to do my Harley Grill and was thinking about the rims too just to see how it will look. Not digging the chrome look anymore.

Not on my truck but I have dinner on my car there holding up well after almost 2 years... In Colorado winters.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

The great thing is about it is if you don't like it or just get tired of it you can just peel it right off, and there are no negative effects. I'm going to do the wheels on my truck and see how they turn out, and I also talked the guy who is spraying whole cars here in town to give me a gallon of the clear. I'm going to play around a little bit with a paint gun and see how this stuff turns out on my Jeep.

Re: Who's jumped on the PlastiDip bandwagon?

I did my grille surround. I installed black wheels and the full chrome front end looked odd. Shot the grille surround, much better. Going to do the roof this spring. 2 reasons, 1) a small piece of paint has lifted a bit, gonna sand it down, primer, plasti-dip. 2) something different...

I am contemplating using Plasti Dip on my XL grill. My truck is white and that grill just looks hideous. I am thinking about something along the lines of the FX4 grill color scheme in white, plus the bumpers. I am just not sure how a flat white grill and bumpers will look. I assume all Plasti Dip has a flat appearance.

Yes, plasti-dip is flat, but they make a glossifier top coat..
