Default Plasti-dip a whole car?

I don't know if this topic has been debated on here but I'm really curious. For the next broke guy like me, how would plasti-dip work for a whole car for a temp. thing before getting a professional paint job done?

Why in the hell would you want to cover your hole car in rubber? I have tried that stuff on springs just to see how it would look,and that stuff is hard as hell to get a smooth outcome,i can't even imagine how a car would look.

Man I think that stuff is pretty textured. That would probably be the last paint job you ever do or get because it would cost you twice the shops regular price because they would have to strip all that shiz off.

Get some QUALITY automotive spray paint if you really have to do it this minute with little funds. Otherwise just save up and have someone else do it once you can afford it. Friends with a compressor and a garage they could lend you for a week could make this a lot cheaper as well.

Why the F would anyone over do this? Your car would look like it was dipped in road tar.

Actually, you know what? Do it! I want to see this now.

Plasti-Dip is OK on small surface items and irregularly shaped items, but not for large surfaces. It's extremely hard to get even. It'll be across the spectrum from rough to smooth and will look terrible. You'd be better off rattle canning with matte blank. Probably cost the same but it'll look a little better.

I have a friend who coated his entire truck in Rhino Liner and it looked like shit. However, it was his weekend "rock crawler", so it actually served a purpose.

You couldn't do anything worse. Why would you add more paint before you need to have it sanded/stripped for a professional paint job? There is absolutely NO valid reason to do this as a "temp. thing" before you get your car painted. Even if your car is rusting, the best and really only option is to cut out, repair, sand, and properly prime/paint the new pieces of the panels.

My cousin built an old Toyota 4-Runner with no roof and Rhino liner painted the entire outside of the car, but that was so he could roll it a dozen times in the desert on a weekend, and not give a damn about the paint or body panels. In his case it was PERMANENT. The only way to remove something like that would be a chemical strip or a media blaster.

Do not do this. The cheap way in this case, will cost you more in the long run.

i think just freaking spray canning would look better than plasti dip in the end you might not need to buy new body components if you plan on actually painting or spend a shit load of time removing it

It looks great, I'd even consider doing something like that to my car, BUT not if I was planning on getting it painted afterwards. Most paint shops will not want to deal with painting rubber instead of metal.

I agree,it would cost "WAY" more in the long run to take all that rubber off.
