Plastic dip

Has anyone used plastic dip on your bike? any pros and cons. thinking of saving some cash and using it on my front forks and triple trees.

Not on my bike but I used it on the grill of my trucks and my rims as well.
Honestly I adore the stuff. It has been strong as hell and looks great. Just make sure to follow the directions and use lots of thin coats...not a few heavy ones.

There is a guy on the forum that did it a while back and posted pictures. You might find the post if you search around.

ya i used it on my forks and turn sigs. its a quick way to get black. but if u want a glosses look to it spray some clear over it. its not a pro paint job but it looks ok. ive used my little cheap presure washer on it(not to close) and so far its holding up well. i will remove it as i can get $$$$$ for the paint or powder coat(right now im a little pissed off about powder coaters) but for that instant black out its good. i got some pics around here somw where an can get more. have fun

I did it to a few things on my bike. If you are planning on putting it over chrome, it doesn't stick too well IMO. It started peeling off within 6 months. I may have applied it wrong, but the nice thing is that it's inexpensive to recoat.
