Recomended Paint Steps

Paint vs Plasti-Dip

  Paint Plasti-Dip
Application Skill: Can be done both at home by spray paint, at home with an air powered paint gun, or by a professional shop. Can be done at home with no equipment necessary.
Life Expectancy: Paint life has many variables like amount of sun exposure, and quality of prep-work. Depending on level of application, it can last a very long time. Most plasti-dips can fail after the first year. Once damage occures, you will need to redo the application. Also prone to sun-fading.
Durability: Paint that has a protective clear coat can be very durable. As long as the clear coat is monitored and maintained, no normal damage should occure. Plasti-Dip is very susceptible to scratches, nicks, and other damage associated with general wear.
Repairability: If it has been damaged it can be repaired as long as you have some of the original paint. However it may be difficult to make the repair blend in depending on location of damage.

Once a section of plasti-dip has been damaged, the only repair option is to redo that section. The new plasti-dip may not match previous sections due to sun-fading.

Install Time: Paint is a very time-consuming process, and its final quality depends greatly how much prep-work was done. Plasti-Dip can be installed on the vehicle in as little as one day.
Overall Quality: Paint depending on the application, has a better quality over Plasti-Dip and provides a more permanent and finished look. Plasti-Dip is prone to sun-fading, and low durability. However it is a good option for those who want a temporary look.

Consensus: If you're looking for a permanent result, then paint by far is the best choice. If you'd rather have a quick temporary design, then plasti-dip may be a better solution for you.
While vinyl is another option, we do not recommend it for Jeep builds based on material cost, durability, and overall finished look.
