Although technically not a paint, Plasti Dip is your go-to solution for easy coating of automotive emblems and quarter panels. This red rubber plastic dip can also be used for household repairs and crafts projects. It air dries quickly and becomes the new surface, protecting the original material from environmental exposure and rust. It has been used on vehicles and motorcycles of practically every make and model. Professionals and hobbyists have been touting its benefits since its inception in 1972. As Performix describes it, it's the "original, peelable, flexible, insulating, non-slip, durable rubber coating." When applying Plasti Dip, it's good to choose a well-ventilated, shaded area with minimal air movement. During a period of high humidity, it's best to wait for dryer weather. The product performs best when the air temperature is around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. In any case, one of the advantages of the Performix spray is that it's easy to peel and re-do anything that you aren't completely satisfied with. The process starts with masking off surrounding paint, trim, rubber or glass. Next you'll need to clean and thoroughly dry the surface(s) where you'll be applying Plasti Dip.

Take note of areas where a freshly coated surface is immediately adjacent to a non-coated one, as you'll need to un-mask that part while the final layer is still wet.
