    I plasti-dipped the doors and roof on my fiero and it's lasted a year to date through the nice michigan winters without issue and still going strong. I wash the car every now and then too. I didn't even prep the surface when I originally dipped it.

    That's mine. Did it gunmetal grey with the black accents and black roof. I love it but I'm doing it again matte black with gloss roof/hood/trunk on the body line of course, oh and the wheels in bronze plastdip also. Ill take pics when I do it. So many people at work liked it that I've even made a little side business for it, painted 4 cars so far.

    ----------

    Oh and about matte white... I did my wife's car orginially in matte white ( it was a baby blue trailblazer) but it stained every time a tree seed fell on it if it wasn't washed off fast enough. It also took 5-6 gallons, I redid it in matte black and only took 3 gallons and came out better. Also, use the sprayer that they sell, its great for plastidip.

    Kind of reminds me of that nail polish I buy my daughter that can peel off.
