It's just plasti dip spray.

Plasti dip is like a aerosol can like spray paint, it comes out like spray paint but when it drys it's like a plastic. So you can peel it off eventually if you want.

Does it come off easy or is it pretty durable?

I like the chrome look better but that's just me. Looks like you did a pretty good job with the paint though.

It's durra me to like elements. Like dirt and rain and everything like that. But when you wanna peel it off it comes off pretty easy. It just takes time.

I like the chrome look also. That's why I used plastidip instead of paint.

I got it at lowes. You can usually get it at any hardware store for like 5-6 bucks a can.

I just cleaned mine. Because its not permanent. I didn't want ruin the chrome. Mine came out kinda matte black. It sprays down glossy but then eventually comes out more flat.

Cool thanks for the info fate I'm gonna go head and try it I never even herd of it befor I read your thread I'm gonna try it on some other stuff does it work on plastic I've got a radio bezel my dude gave me but its made out of carbon fiber I hate carbon fiber I'm not 16 nor do I drive a rice burner but it's a lot tougher than that flimsy plastic like the stock one and I don't wanna sand it and mess it up

Yeah, people have used it without issues on plastic. It's pretty much just spray-on rubber. Like Fate said, I can't imagine it's not safe to use on many things. More than likely worst case scenario is it either doesn't stick well or is difficult to remove. Pretty sure heat has more to do with that than anything though.
