because paint under the coat would chip (even under the clear coat... it would break up and stuff.) and if you used plastiDIP then you would end up having to change brushes/pull the rubber off of the brush every 5 minutes.

normal paint would chip if you get shot by a paintball, and if you get shot in the plastidipped area, it'll probably get weakened and/or tear off. you can peel this off with your hand easily. I tested it on some areas of my mask, and next day I shot it at point blank range and it left a stretched mark

yeah the plasti dip does stretch.. i reccomend using it on the frames of a proflex.. and then getting an extra frame if u plan on changing lenses...

just never take your lenses out of that painted frame!

i really have had no problems with the stuff. i took a ton of shots in the face the week after it stopped smelling and it looks peachy good. i only have the "stretch marks" near where i cut, but only if you look really close. the cutting is definately only for meticulous workers.

i had maybe 2-3 from cross-field cuz i had my head out too long right in the center and one in the side after i got bunkered up near the right side of my jaw.

one reccommendation, if it ever gets crappy just isolate the streched area, cut it off, smooth it out and repaint over that spot with a triple coat.

Not for nothin', but when it comes to removing masking, you need to remove it before the paint dries. Preferably when it's just past wet. That is the only way to get sharp edges on masked areas. Am I wrong, or is the world out of step? jk

ummm ok im not really getting the stretch mark stuff. does that happen only on the soft rubber, or if i only did the lens frame, would that get stretch marks too when i get hit there. also how does it wash off? on the link to ebay, it says it is permanent but removable
