Yeah, I'll probably try them too - would buy the parts but I don't like gloss blacks. Just discovered that my paint has cracked - it rained a few hours after I painted, and I think that's f$%&*ed it up. Got a spare can so may as well try it all again :(

Hi Crieffy, how did you get on with the plastidipping? As easy as planned?

I'm going to have to do it again, but it was easy to put on - and easy to remove masking tape immediately after the last coat (if you leave it too long it starts to pull the stuff off the wrong areas - removing tape while wet seems to give a cleaner line)

It rained on mine within 3 hours and that seems to have buggered it up. I'm tempted to try vinyl wrap but I've never used it before either - it would likely be more durable over a couple of years.
