Plasti dip is going to be extremely difficult to get nice clean ones on those letters, And it will take lots of taping. Black vinyl inserts are only $10 and a can of Plasti dip is $6. So for $4 more your getting a much easier install, a much more permanent product, and most likely a much better look!

Plasti dip has like no quality at all.. I love the product and what you can do with it but still not quality.. If vinyl is put on good and correct it will last for years, I do my own stripes

Yes which attracts dust and never looks as glossy or as clean as vinyls.
