Plasti dip for sub box
 
Has any one used the plasti dip spray to coat your sub box. I am going to try it on mine when I build it. I will post pictures.

I plasti dip the rims on my car last year, has held up quite well. Kinda project on a whim deal. I had my summer wheels off and snow wheels on, so it was pretty easy to shoot them. I'd worry about it sticking to MDF, did you put any base or primmer coat down?

I also plasti dip'd my motor cycle last year. I found in high rub areas it would come up. To counter this I used some flat dark grey camouflage pant over the plasti dip. The spray paint layer seems to provide a more durable finish that protects the plasti dip.

I took some stuff to the Rhino liner guy and she he told me the price I cringed . He said hey I have found that Trandstar undercoating works very well as a rhino lining like product. I bought some and used it for a outdoor sub box that sits in my garden. I bought 2 cans of it and it works awesome the finished product looks like a thinner rhino lined coating the sub box has been out door fork ER a year now and it looks like brand new. Ill post a pic of it tomarrow

Where did you pick that stuff up at sound like a good fit. I have not done my box yet I was planning on carpet over the coating with 3M adhesive.

Trandstar is a automotive (body shop) brand product. I have never seen it at any consumer style store. So I'm sure you can find it either online or at your local Body Shop supply store.
