    So the idea came to mind as I have been wanting some stripes but not sure if I wanted them to be permanent. Would this be a easy cool idea to do? Has anyone tried this before, if so post up some pictures!

    I guess stencils could be made using and actual stripe kit, but the colors won't vary as much.

    I've got several cans of plasti-dip but have never considered stripes.

    I have a cowl hood I can try it on...

    As long as the surface is fully protected and prepared properly, Plasti Dip would be interesting. I would wonder about how you would care for it and how it would do in the Sun.

    Just go to youtube and do a search. There are a TON of videos about using it for all kinds of stuff. I am planning on using it on my window trim when I get to that point.

    Thinking vinyl would be a whole lot easier and more durable.

    I plastidipped the wheels of couple of the cars I have. It's very durable and easy. I purchased a mustang that had plasidip stripes which I removed, it was easy to remove and left no marks.
    The material spreads easily and would look as if it's professionally done. I highly recommend.
