    This is my review for:
    [​IMG]

    Flexi-Dip Bought it from Home Depot in USA on sale for $4.99 a can.
    I give it a 4 out of 5.
    One of the reasons aside from price that i bought this stuff was because it supposed dries with a smoother surface. Buy mainly it was the price. Also the can has some nice graphics.

    Anyways i have used this on 2 applications so far.
    1. chrome from grill on a Ford Focus, did about 3 coats. about a month or so ago, no chipping so far.

    2. Used to paint interior parts of my truck, to cover the fake wood grain.

    Im quite happy with the product so far, and i would recommend it..

    What i really like is how fast it dries. its dry in like 10 minutes.. (Well not totaly dry but dry enough to move the part or re-spray)

    Im going to be picking up another couple cans for sure.
    Canada Home Depot sells for $10

    Good to know! I'll definitely have to try some, at 10 bucks a can, that is way cheaper than plasti dip.

    I will have to check this stuff out, I did my first plasti-dip a while ago, and wasn't happy with the results.. operator error haha! I'd be interested to see how this stuff stacks up.
    Does it peel like plasti-dip?

    looks good. Just wondering if I motivated you to try the stuff? As you know I've used plastidip on the inetrior and exterior of my car. The only problem I've had is with an interior piece that rubs against my leg, the plastidip rubs/peels off. I'm going to try the flexidip to see if's it any better.

    Can you get this stuff in a sprayable? I might try to pick up a princess auto spray gun and give it a try on my van.

    Got a car with a horribly oxidized roof section ... looks like single-stage paint. Any thoughts on what the worst that could happen if I Flexi-dip it? Also any idea how many cans it would take?
