It says it's in stock at the Lowes near me also. I've gotta go past there tomorrow anyway so I'll stop and see if they have it. If not, I'm ordering online. Stuff looks legit!

I am impressed with how well it has held up, 2 weeks no scratches or peeling

The more people that say it's holding up, the more confident I feel in the product.

I did my faux gas cap to turn it black with glossifier. Did that probably 5 months ago and it still looks like the day I did it.

Looks great! I dipped my rims, faux gas cap, and the pony on my upper grill. I just spray and wipe it with quik detailer every now and then when it gets just a little dirty.

I hand wash mine but would even without the dipped parts. I have run mine through s Mikes Carwash in a pinch and it didn't phase the plastidip.

I'd go for it. If you don't like it it peels right off. I wish I had waited till Spring to do mine however because the salt & cold weather made it not stick as well. I'll be redoing mine in a month or so.

Plasti dip is really good for how cheap it is. I did mine and only spent around $28-$30 including a can of glossifier.

The first picture with the car pointing to the right is when I first painted them..

The second picture with the house in the background is 6 months later. No scratches and they are still holding up great and I daily drive my car, two times a week I travel more than 120 miles in one day and the rest of the days around 40-60 miles.. Only thing I did have to touch up the rears because the guys at the tire shop messed them up when I put on new tires.

4 coats of black and 2 coats of glossifier.
