Removable paint has been on the market for years now and the uses for a paint that can been removed keeps on growing. So, lets go over the best uses for removable car paint.
Painting your car
This may seem like the most obvious use for removable car paint. So naturally we had to put it first on the list. What makes removable car paint better than normal automotive paint? Removable paint, often called liquid wraps, are much cheaper than classic automotive paint. Removable car paint is also available for Do – It – Yourself users. Products like ProLine and Plasti Dip are thicker than normal paint and can be sprayed without the need for a large compressor and gun setup. On the other end of the spectrum, there are professional level products like Halo EFX and AutoFlex. These brands carry clear coats that can be wet sanded, buffed, and waxed. This leaves an OEM glossy finish that can still be removed.
Painting your rims
Rims are one of the most customized things on cars. They also take quite a beating from break dust, debris, curb rash etc. I am sure you have seen your buddies car (or your car) with a super cool set of matte black rims /sarcasm. Removable paint has come a long way and you now have much more options when it comes to color and finish. Mix in some pearls and spray your rims from a gun setup, or simply use a rattle can. Either way you are protecting your rims and who doesn’t like changing the color of their rims?
Black Out Everything
If you have ever wanted to do a chrome delete or blackout your tail lights, removable car paint is the product for you. By being able to remove the paint, without leaving any residue, you can see what your car would look like without the chrome. Blackout your trim and emblems and if you hate it, just peel it off. This mod will only cost you a few rattle cans of removable car paint and will make your car look completely new.

Fix broken headphones / charger
All it takes to save a good pair of headphones is a can of Plasti Dip, and a little time, and you can re-seal stripped headphone wires with a firm seal that won’t break again anytime soon.
Just pour the removable paint into a plastic cup or Tupperware container, and either submerge the part of your headphone wires that’s stripped, or use a small paintbrush to brush the liquid plastic around the area where the cable has started to pull away from the headphone assembly and reveal the wire beneath. Smooth it out with a toothpick, and let dry. Re-apply as many coats you think you need.
