Default D.I.Y Grippy Rubber Shell Cover

I've been a huge fan of this product for years ---> http://www.plastidip.com/

It's basically a spray on rubberized coating that is also 100% REMOVABLE!

I have been using it on trim pieces and rims on my car for years.

Out of sheer boredom, I decided I would try the product on my Moto G battery cover.

Turned out great!!

On my last coat, I got near the bottom of the can (was using left overs), so a couple of bubbles appeared.

But this was just a proof of concept, spur of the moment situation.

Next time I am going to use a fresh can, and maybe a different colour.

Anyway, here are my results!

Tell me what you think!






Here are some pics of me removing the coating. Peels off easily. Leaves no marks.




Phones: Motorola Atrix 4G ---> Samsung Galaxy Nexus (temporarily) ---> LG Optimus 3d ---> Samsung Galaxy SII LTE Skyrocket ---> LG Optimus G ---> Sony Xperia ZL ---> Motorola Moto G
My Roms/Ports: CarbonRom/CarbonClash (port): http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2181390
Thanks: XDA and all its members. Without you I'd still be an uneducated bumpkin complaining about my shi**y phone.

Looks nice! But maybe a bit too ruggy, not for the bubbles, on the rest too. But I guess that happens with any spray painting Unluckily. Anyway, looks nice to me :thumbup:

Thanks. The thing is that it's not paint. It's fully removable and leaves no trace. This was just a rush job with some almost empty left over cans. Just wanted to see how well it would sick. Going for a different color and better quality next time

One phone ago I sprayed my Nexus S's battery cover with clear Plasti-Dip and it did not hold well at the edges, and would start peeling away rather quickly.

Please keep us posted, and if it does work, maybe some tips on application or something?
