Does it have a good resistance to a spill while filling fuel?

You know how it goes -
you never spilled a drop untill the day after you painted your tank!

Yeah, that is a potential issue. There is one guy on the dipyourcar forums who has done a few bikes that said he usually applies some krylon matte clear coat over the top of the plastidip to protect it. I'm worried that would harden though and make the plastidip harder to remove later on, so I am just going to stick with the raw plastidip and be extra careful. It's always possible to touch it up if need be.

I like the color after it has set a few days. In the low light it really does have a different color than when in the bright sunshine. IF you clear coat it you will have to chemical strip that coat before you remove the undercoating. IF you scratch it, take a photo, repair it, take photo and let us know how that goes.

Thanks to mothers inspiration, I removed the tins today waiting for the black plasti dip to arrive in a few days. In the meantime, I'll prep them for the dip.

What all is involved in the plastidip? I can't get on the website from work. Is it a spray or do you actually dip like you do with tools, etc?

It's a spray. I did mine with rattle cans, but they also sell pre-thinned gallons to use with a paint sprayer.

If you just want to give it a try with some black, they sell that at Home Depot and Lowe's right along side the spray paint.

Thanks! Is it really as easy to remove as just peeling it off? If so, I'd definitely give it a try!
