Powder coating tips

I had my tips ceramic coated and they turned out bad. The shop claims they must have not been fully cured. They're trying hi temp powder coat this time. We'll see how that goes : /

I just plastidiped mine. Had them done for about 5 months and 3000 miles. No problems so far, although if there will be I will just paint them again.

I heard they are perfect going for a certain amount of time but at some point when you try to remove it it's a hassle because it wont come off in one peel...or few either. They said It crumbles and comes off in small small pieces. Maybe It was a cause of the exhaust heat or It was too light of coats. I haven't tried it yet so I can't say for sure

I have had no problems so far. For a 6$ can and about an hour of my time with 4 coats... Works great. Don't plan on taking it off, but would say, it would probably be PITA. If something happens... I will just paint it again. I also have my front mustang emblem painted... Some rubbed off when using bug remover. I just put another two coats over the area that started to come off. Maybe someday I will get around to painting it for real, but has worked so far almost a year as a DD in rain, snow, and heat in IL.

Wow I'm surprised the plasti dip help up that well on your exhaust tips. That's pretty impressive for such a quick, easy, and affordable option! Good work!

I think the plasti dip will be a total PITA to take off because it defintely looks like it has changed chemically once it heats up lol. I have heard that it is a pain to get off, but I dont plan on taking it off my tips anyway. I've had it on for about 6 months and have had zero problems with it. I somehow scrapped a tip pulling out of a parking lot one time and all I did was spray a few coats back on it and it looks good as new.
