Like I said, I've had it on my Charger's wheels and grill for about three months now. Still looks as good as new. No flaking, peeling, etc. The most important thing is surface preparation, doing 5-7 light
coats, and letting it dry between coats. Get a few cans, spray it on some parts as a test, and if you like what you see at that point, then go get some more for the whole bike.

Didn't have that problem with the black or Blaze Orange. And one can does not go very far.
Just from my experience with Plasti dip, it's great for tools and things that won't be exposed to the sun. For big projects you're going to want to get the gallon kit, otherwise you'll be blowing through cans quickly.
I think some colors are tricky. I noticed the white tended to come out a little chunkier. Though, I've heard that applying it with a spray gun can also be hit or miss; you have to get the consistency right.
Cheese, is your bike garaged or parked outside?
