I guess the answer is that there's no harm trying but has anybody got any experience, please?

Failing that, I was thinking of localised vinyl wrapping.

Thanks

repetitive friction would cause it to self peel I think mate. Think of it staying on the surface using surface tension rather than adhesive.

I've sprayed my full car in the past, black celica GT4 with full veilside bodykit (hence the username) from black to matt white. Had it like that for almost 3 years and although it was then very hard to peel off, had I been bothered to spray a few more coats ontop to refresh the layers below I reckon it would probably have peeled then.

I sprayed it outside and other than 1 small bit on the front bumper where I'd not got rid of a water drip it came out well. I'll see if I can get a photo up.
