plasti dip question

So am at the point where my project truck is ready to be painted. So i've been reading up on how to paint and on plasti dip. Has anyone here used it before and how well does it hold up. I just want to use it for temp deal till i can do a full paint job so the truck will be one color. Thanks for any input on this.

If you go back and read some of the old threads about guys with plastidip you'd understand. It has it's place, but it's not for everything.

OP, go here if you really do want to dip your truck. I'd personally cover mine in bedliner or do a wrap before I did plastidip though.

Agreed 100%. Plastidip is not hated on for everything, but painting an entire truck is not a good idea. It's fine for throwing on some winter wheels, or dipping an interior part to see how you like it before actually painting it. But don't use it as your primary paint.

Its just thought atm and the want for it to be one color before it hits the road again but am also looking at painting it to, just not sure which way to go yet it really comes down to the cost of it and learning to "paint to which isn't that big of a deal."
