You'll get people on both sides of the fence. I did it because the original paint was in horrendous shape, so pitting 4-5 coats of plasti dip (via rattle can too) over it wouldn't make a difference. Lol
Its lasted quite good in the florida
sun, daily rains, and abuse from me not caring about the paint. Only cost me like 110 bucks for the paint, and I did it outside over a few days.
