A lot of modders use it for wheels. Usually damaged or scratched, my kid took is chrome rims and used black to get a black out effect.

I've seen some pretty nice plastidip jobs on cars. I could see it freshening up the exterior of a rough vintage airstream, or allowing someone to do some kind of custom design that they could easily remove later. I like the product, I did some interior pieces in my Miata with it.

Would it provide any insulating properties? I know it's not that thick, but it seems it SHOULD stop all sorts of tiny air intrusions and leaks, plus it does put a small thermal barrier over the ribs, etc. doesn't it?

Yes, it would provide a small amount of assistance.

I'd like to use this for a TEMPORARY custom design on a portion of my trailer - like a decal on the side. Do you really think it would peel off easily? And would it "bleed" through into the aluminum (no clear coat)?

Thanks for any replies!

Plasti-Dip an Airstream?

I really like the look. This Could be fun to do as a project. Definitely would use plasti dip on wheels and some exposed areas. For the full trailer is there a risk of etching or oxidation? I've noticed on my rig that where there were stickers the aluminum can sometime be milky and almost coral like oxidation.

Very cool.
