I took maybe 30-45 mins for each fender to tape up and paint, and it was plasti-dip in a spray can.

Well, my grandma was backing into the driveway and hit one of my fenders that I painted today... so happy.

looks great. I'm hoping to do mine one of these days. Just need to find a garage to use or one nice sunny day with no wind. But that may be asking for to much Do you plan on plasi-dipping anything else? I know that stuff can be addicting.

After I did my flares it was so hard to not dip anything else. I think it looks perfect

Took about 3 coats on each fender, and only took about 1 can total. Also no I didn't use any adhesion promoter and i didn't sand first.
