Well, for everything you do in life, there is always going to be an easier way to do it. That’s pretty much common knowledge, right? However, just because one way is easier than another, does not mean that it is the best way to do something. Therefore, you must consider every factor before you decide how exactly you’re going to update the appearance of your car.
Plasti Dip was not created with the idea of altering the colors of vehicles in mind. It is simply a rubber coating that is used for a variety of applications, such as: insulation and protection from abrasions.
At some point in time, people began applying Plasti Dip to vehicles, because it is less expensive than vinyl and new paint jobs, and Plasti Dip is fairly easy to apply and remove.
If properly applied, Plasti Dip can last as long as 3 years without having to be retouched. The appearance of Plasti Dip on vehicles depends on the appearance of existing paint jobs and how many coats are applied.
You may be wondering: if Plasti Dip is less expensive than vinyl and paint jobs ($300 vs. $1,000 – 2,000), then why doesn’t everyone use Plasti Dip every time they makeover their cars? The answer is simple: Plasti Dip a) doesn’t last as long as vinyl (5 – 7 years) or paint (up to 10 years), and b) Plasti Dip doesn’t always look good, especially if cars have poor paint jobs or are dark colors.
Now here’s the million-dollar question: which solution is right for you, vinyl or Plasti Dip?
Well, we’re not going to tell you that you should never get Plasti Dip, because Plasti Dip can definitely look great on cars, especially if you hire a professional technician to do the job for you. However, if you have a dark-colored vehicle or the paint job on your car is looking a little rough, then we do not highly recommend Plasti Dip.
Furthermore, if cost is a big factor for you, then consider this: Plasti Dip is less expensive than vinyl, but it will only last at maximum 3 years. Vinyl can last up to 7 years without having to be replaced, and a paint job can last up to 10. However, a paint job requires a lot more commitment than vinyl, because vinyl is the easiest of these 3 options to remove.
