    I just have part of my grille done in it, and its holding well but in a fairly well protected area. Brasscatz has the bumpers and flares done on his.

    Sent via messenger pigeon - i talk, he types.

    I'm actually pretty surprised at how well it holds up, did my bead locks and so far haven't had it peel off, even after a good bashing in the deep snow all yesterday.

    Not for sure how it'll hold up to hitting trails.. but I know it all depends on the prep work, as any paint or coating would.. I got co-worker who has coated his rims and bumpers on his Silverado 1500.. his bumpers were the factory "chrome" and when he coated them in Plasti-dip, he didn't do any prep other then washing it... and it does pretty well overall, other then a few rock chips here and there...

    Holds up pretty good actually. Yeah, it chips and peels a bit in places, but honestly I've just cut off the excess and resprayed over it again lol. It's far from a permanent covering, bit it'll get you by until you decide to paint it completely

    If I remember correctly, most areas just got washed. I wanted a removable paint in case I didn't like the black. There are a few places that I didn't prep at all and just sprayed away
