    I would consider it if I still had my 1990 safari minivan. the paint was peeling and it looked terrible. I am not into that look so unless I had some major paint issues on my truck I would not do it. Looks like an easy process though. I saw a new jeep grand cherokee painted like that yesterday. It did catch my eye. It was odd that a 65 year old man was driving it.

    I don't know, If I had a beater maybe. If it gets nickedor scratched you are up *%$^ creek. You would have to remove that peace and redo it.

    I watched the whole video and it did not look like it. Imean it looked smooth but not like a paint job. I painted for some time including our work vans. If I was doing some off roading and wanted a little extra protectionon the guards and stuff of that nature, ok then. I might use for the underneathof my truck for salt but I think I would still rather use rhino spray for that,witch I’m doing in the spring.

    I cannot see myself spraying plastic/rubber on my truckor even an ATV for that matter. I just can’t, especially to outside. To each isto own (or how ever that go’s lol). It might be cool for the interior stuff.Not a hack job like the guy in the video. I would have to do each peace and notusing the crack as a tape off.

    The more I type the more that is going through my mind.It looked pretty simple the way he did it. Right? What about when he pops thehood or opens the doors.

    Maybe I am being a little harsh, but this is only one mans opinion. It is you Truck, Car, Atv, or whatever so do what you wish to it.
