Matte Clear Plasti-Dipped WW Evo X

Damn that's so sick! I'd just be afraid of damaging the paint or the peeling not coming off right. I had my wheels plastidipped on my previous car 3 years ago and I let it stay like that for 3 whole years it held up great just touch it up any time you need to BUT when time came to take it off it wouldn't fully come off. A very very thin coat from underneath the peel stayed pretty much permanent on the wheels in a few small areas after peeling it off (which was NOT EASY, a couple hours per wheel). I'm not sure why maybe cuz I let it on too long but I would suggest peeling it every maybe 6 months or so and re-doing it to be on the safe side.

This look more agressive than the stock Wicked White. I like it. Good mod!

More than 6 months and they spray the car with Goo Gone then power wash it off. Sounds a little sketchy to me, I hate Goo Gone, scares me, ha ha. But they showed me a car that had just had it's Platidip removed that way and it was fine. Clearcoat still looked great and no damage I could see. Plastidip was on for a year.

The only catch is that where panels meet and the gap is tight, like the rear 1/4 panel and rear bumper, you could still see a little Plastidip in the crack. If you just spray matte or clear over your stock color then no big deal I guess. This car was silver with residue of red in those cracks though :/ Kind of stood out since they changed the color.

If you get their touchup kit, it will soften the overspray and you can wipe it off with a microfiber cloth
