Better idea, don't do it! Removed plastic, and did it. Pita, and didn't last long. Spend your time on something worthwhile unless you never see a tree branch, or pressure washer

I only sprayed the removable hood but Glamisfan masked everything and sprayed it.

It has limited application where it does perform excellent.

I looked good at first. But now the rear fenders wiggle a little bit so you can see an 1/8" of yellow on the quarter panels. Good enough for me, but maybe not everybody. But the hood area still looks good.

Is it really a pain in the a'' to peel off?
I wanna do it just to tell my wife I traded buggies out with someone else, watch her freak out n get all mad then show her it ours. Gotta keep the blood flowing in our house. She is emotionally attached to our Mavreick somehow, so if I was to pull a fast trade on this one she will flip. I wouldn't though this has been our favorite buggy.

It depends on how thick your coat's are. The thicker it is, the easier it comes off. The thicker coat allows it to peel off in larger pieces.

That's what I figured it would do I just don't know if it would be worth tearing it all the way apart. I ride in heavily wooded areas

Then take the easier road and just mask everything off and spray away.

Are ya'll taking the stickers off? masking them? or just spraying over them? I'm about to spray mine, but not sure how it'll hold up with the type of riding I do (woods/mud). Don't realy want to strip all the stickers off if the plastidip doesn't work out....

I would peel the stickers off and any glue off, then spray away. If you get scratches from branches or bushes, you can spray right over the top of the scratch to touch it up. Once it dries, you will barely notice it.

would it work to spray over stickers, then run around them with an xacto knife and peel the plasti dip off of the stickers? then you would have your color changed and decals/stickers showing too. I've never used the stuff, but from what I have read about it, it seems that this would work.
