how durable is plastidip? i dont wanna go throught that work just to have it end up sh!tty again in 6 months.

I'd rather do another type of fix.
Spend even more time sanding, prepping, priming and spray painting the trim pieces is the only other way I've this done and the results are not oem looking as the paint makes it look like Hyundai plastic trim.

What Neil did may be your route if you really are that hung up on getting the vision you want for you car done the way you want and you have the time, money and commitment.

My car is 9 years and 55k miles old and my DIY time-wise and money-wise is as far as I want to go on interior trim that just needs to look good for the summer. If it all falls apart by September then I have the option to plasti-dip it again or just spend $150 on new pieces.
