Yup! It gets dirty pretty easy tho if you don't clear coat it! Dirt and dust just stick to it. But it's easily washed with a power washer at the car wash.

I did my rear deck lid black out and my front end (pilers and pony) with plasti-dip I put a clear coat on the pony so it stays shiny and clean.

u can plasti dip whatever on ur car's body. but if ur gona paint ur calipers just use paint thats made for the calipers. get the kit that they sell for it. it will last u much longer. Mark has pics of his calipers when he used the kit and it still looks new.

Don't ever do that on your calipers. Bad idea. Just get caliper paints not plasti dip.

Re: Plasti dip

real caliper paint kits really are just overpriced for what they do...all a kit comes with is the same high heat ceramic paint at a can of engine enamel just with a brush which im more or a rattle can guy myself

Plastic dip is a fun little thing I have actually platidipped a lot on my car. Rear valence. Tail lights. All the honeycomb inserts (Hood, and the ones on the door) and I have also done the grille insert I wouldn't use it on calibers cause I dont think it would make much of a difference visually, that's just my opinion though.

Do you just get the clear coat from an auto parts store? I did my pony and would like to clear coat it.

I used dupla color clear coat spray can. They should have it at any hardware or paint store. Also Walmart has it.

Are you still able to peal it off if you put clear coat on top of the plastidip?

It just helps keep it clean and ads a shine. The plasti-dip is more than durrable enough by itself.

i've seen people do it on wheels before. it'll leave a nice high gloss finish that can be removed
