    People have done there ski's with plasti dip with good results. Wouldn't use bed liner, that would leave a brutal texture.

    i had a ski with bedliner before, i hated it... i wouldnt do it again .... but plasti dip seems to hold up to 3500 psi pressure washers pretty well, just wondering how it would hold up to water.

    How do you apply that ? It is thick usually...are you planning on thinning it and spraying it through a gun???

    there are kits, its like a 200 dollar kit comes with a wagner gun and a galon of plasti dip. need about 8 good coats for it to be a good looking finish.
