Plasti Dip

Has anyone used this stuff? I think I'm going to try it on my belly pan. I'm going with black and will probably use their clear coat too, for a nice glossy finish.

If all goes well, I'll be trying the clear dip on the front fairing to protect against rock chips.

If its the stuff i am thinking of its amazing.
Very elastic and when sprayed it will even coat a rubber glove without cracking.
You need to use special thinners and apply plenty of coats even when painting with brush.

carbon fiber replacement, viny wrap, have it professionally painted, or diy plastidip -- in that order(i would chose carbon or vinyl wrap myself). An MV is a nice piece of work, DIY jobs usually lack the finer touches that one is accustomed to having on nicer things..

Plastidip is great for things like repainting dirtbikes, beach cruisers, jeep rims, and around-the-house type crap, but not to rattle can a brand new italian machine that is of a premium design.

but no harm in trying it, there isnt any risk aside for the $6 can and 15 minutes of time spent.

tested " up to +200F." ....so I wouldn't put in on my belly pan.

There are better coatings made for your needs.

I want to get a carbon one, but then I'm going to need the exhaust cover too. Then the front fender, rear hugger......

I have used some 3M vinly wrap on my belly pan of my RC51, to protect it from road debris, and it is holding up quite well. BUT, I did have plasti-dip on my old JEEP XJ hood, and even in summer time off road in the FL heat, I never had a problem, and that ran 210-225 engine temps. The vinly wrap looks way better... just don't get wax on it a CF or textured vinly... it is a huge pain to clean off.
