Rust Oleum Flexidip superior to plastidip

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Ive never had good luck with plasti dip. Ive bought two cans from ace hardware, and both have clogged or exploded, so F plastidip. Took a chance with a can of flexidip at home depot, and im actually impressed. Lays down smooth, dries in 5 or so minutes, and you can keep packing it on. Bravo Rust oleum.

Looks nice and smooth, unlike Plasti-dip usually.

Off topic, but what shift knob is that?

I tried it on my friend's rim. I also Plastidipped my rims before, one thing I noticed is that the coverage of the Rustoleum is not as good as Plastidip (might be the nozzle though). Which might explain the smoother finish?

Probably wont work well on that area, as the plastic console has the leather grain type of finish. We are basically stuck with it, or shell out like $282 for a new one.

Its the Bimmian lighted shift knob. I really like the orange led, which matches the rest of the orange lights in your interior.

I agree the spray pattern is smaller, which is good for these small applications but FML if doing larger rims or body panels.

Their site advertises it as "removable rubber coating".

I had the same experience as well, used it just last week to fix steering wheel trim peeling

It is a bit softer and easy to mark/scratch, but has yet to peel

I can tell it is going to be VERY easy to scratch this stuff.

Look at the bottom of the can. If it is stamped with "PD" and a part number, it IS PlastiDip, just re-branded. For example, I have the ArmorAll "Custom Shield", and the bottom of the spray can is stamped "12341 PD CLEAR #19155". It's just PlastiDip in a different can.
