Both the Lowe's and Home Depot I went to had it with the cans of regular spray paint on the top shelf.

Usually in the spray paint section. All those Plasti-Dip products tend to be in that section no matter where ya go.

So is this stuff like a spray paint consistency until it dries? I always thought it was a gloppy, melted wax like consistancy.

Yep... however, it tends to sputter a bit if you let off and hit the button again. That can throw little globs onto the surface you're 'painting', but if it isn't too big, it won't be hardly noticeable with more coats on top of it. The stuff kinda blends together.

The stuff in the little dipping can is the gloppy melted wax you're describing... the solvents in the spray can version makes it go on smoother and is better for these kinds of applications.

It is similar to spray paint, yes. The difference is you can spray it on heavy and it won't look bad like spray paint. And it dries way faster.

How does this stuff match up to the black rubberized interior parts? I bought some SEM color coat for my new explorer console but this might be better.

I only did the driver's side...so I'll see how well it holds up to my knees rubbing up against it when leaning into the double lifted truck. I may peel it all off and shoot real paint on it. Black.

Doing this.

On a high use area, I don't suggest it. Peeling is very likely to occur. Keep in mind, I'm just basing my opinion on having it on my rockers for like not even a week. Others may say otherwise. I've you've got a spare bezel, by all means try it out! Just be sure to report back with results!

Use tried and true materials on interior panels. Like the very high quality SEM product or even Krylon Fusion.

I wouldn't. lol. It's already peeling away from where my boot hits when jumping in, and pants rub when getting out. It's rubberish....so the pant legs just grip to it. And when I lean in for grabbing something from the passenger seat or console or whatnot, my knees hit it. But your truck sits ALOT lower than mine, so you probably won't have the issue I have with it. Pics tmrw.

I'm very pleased with what the product told me, and fully plan on scuffing and shooting real paint on it. Likely a textured black product possibly.

Yeah mine hasn't started peeling at all. I don't hit it when I get in and out though.

So it seems like plati-dip is a lot like most products.. meaning some people love it and some people don't. I am glad that it is, that means that I am going to have to try it out for myself!

Hopefully I can get to it this afternoon. For those of you that tackled it, how long did it take to complete?

You mean Insurance?...From what i gather it's considered "temporary", since you can peel it right off. I been thinking of dipping my truck this summer maybe, just want to make sure how it handles in winter.

God you're stupid. I just yesterday had to go talk to my state farm agent because I plasti-dipped my chrome 17s. Dropped my insurance premium significantly.
