As I said in my application post, and as I did, you could take clear dip, thin it yourself, or buy it prethinned, mix your metallic in to the desired concentration, and spray. The worst that could happen is you don't like it and just peel it off.

Plasti Dip completely seals out any moisture from the underlying material. It was designed as a coating for handles of tools and what not. Rust does ideally need to be taken care of before application, but as long as that is done, no moisture will penetrate the Dip itself. It is actually relatively easy to remove, but will not come off on its own. I had a iffy primer job that the last owner had done, yet on my test area it didn't come off at all once peeled off.

Cool truck. 67's are the best
Haha, yes we do. Contrary to popular belief, most of us aren't actually pig and potato farmers up here. Our landscape varies quite a bit (as does our weather, but that's a rant for another day) from rolling green fields to dry desert.

She is definitely something special and always loves going for a ride in the truck. She even insisted in going to the senior high school prom in it. No complaints there
