Bought some stuff today that looks, sprays and can be peeled off very much like Plasti Dip, I had tried a few different types of truck bed liner and ended up with a similar product that I think could be a substitute for Plasti Dip, will compare it to real Plast Dip shortly and let you know the results. Don't want to give too much away as it may be sold out by the time I get back into town
It's Cheaper too !!
BTW I sprayed a wheel rim with PD and then decided to peal off.
So in the groves I still have PD there. On one wheel I tried brake parts cleaner and it made a whole mess. Turned PD into a smudge that won't come off. On the other I used gasoline and it made PD easy to peal however I still have PD in the cravices.
On my harbor freight trailer.
Let's get it!!!

Been playing around with this a bit more, the product is EZ Liner available in Canadian Tire for $10.99 per can. I sprayed a couple of coats fairly heavy onto a piece of galvanized sheet metal, the only prep I did was to give it a quick wipe with alcohol to get the oil and grime off of it.
It layed down nice and flat (no rough surface like other bedliners) After a couple of hours it would still peel off like the Plasti Dip however after leaving it overnight it is almost impossible to get off without heating it up then scraping it off, so it's not going to be easy if you want to remove it.
The colour is close to Plasti Dip but slightly more gray in it.
I put a couple of coats of clear over it without sanding it and it fish eyed slightly, but it did give it a nice glossy black.
Going to try some more on another sheet and play around with it a bit more and I'll get the BB gun out tomorrow and see if it chip's or flake's off.
Stu, Thats exactly what i used on my Charger front spoiler Mod last year. So far so good. It shines up nice with Tire Shine. Got a small chip in the center where I hit a low spot coming out of a parking lot in Town. Next i will try a bottle of bedliner rejuvinator to see how long that shine lasts. Overall not bad results given the amount of dead bugs that hit there.

I'll have to try the tire shine on it, I remember getting some on Plast Dip and it shined up pretty well too.
Got the BB gun out today and shot at this stuff on a tin plate, dented the plate but the paint held up fine, no cracking, chipping or peeling so I think it will stand up to rocks. I tried some tire shine on it like '03MopaRamman recommended, worked pretty well and gave it a glossy finish.
I'm going to try it on my wheels and see what happens, I was planning on doing something with them anyway, we'll see what happens.....
will it peel off easily like plastidip?

Did the wheels last week, removed the weights, washed them really good a couple of times with lots of soap and water, rinsed then let dry, masked off the mounting flange and wiped them down with lots of rubbing alcohol, then sprayed a couple of coats front and back, this stuff covers really well and you can lay it on pretty heavy, dries to the touch in a few minutes and cures in a few hours.
I pressure washed them today and I don't think this stuff is coming off, it's a lot harder than the plasti dip. There is a slight texture to them but overall I think they'll do for a while.
They are blacker than the picture shows. Black lug nuts ordered, should be here tomorrow or Monday. Still have to pull the brake rotors off and paint the centers of them, probably black.
An FYI Stu; rubbing alcohol, especially if it is over-the-counter for topical application contains oils to minimize skin irritation. In other words it leaves precisely the materials you are attempting to scour.
If you really want to use alcohol as a final prep agent, buy isopropol from the drug store (1 litre containers for cheap) which is usually 99% pure. A much more appropriate material to use just prior to paint application is a dedicated surface wax and grease remover followed up with final wipe. These two products are different; W&G remover is relatively aggressive and can actually remove final primer coat, whereas fianl wipe product leaves the prep work alone but still gets to the minor foreign particulate (after all - no one shoudl be fingering final coat / fianl sand prior to paint app.).
On non-paint or primer apps, like wheels (even with existing powdercoat), W&G is just fine. Any automotive paint vendor carries both in aerosol.

Stu, after sitting for a week with the rain we been getting my spoiler looked like it was acid rain attacked but the tire shine brought it back, so my main comment is that please note that stuff will eventually wash off and you may need to wipe them down more often. I have to do a respray on it anyhow and plan to pick-up some of the rejuvinator I mentioned earlier at C&T. Will let you know if it works well or not. BTW Nice Job. If you ever Tire of Your Rims I would like to call first Dibs Now. Thanks Danny.
