Another thought is to plasti dip and then clear coat over. Some have said that prevents wear even more.
They make a clear for it too called glossifier I think. You do have to put about 5 good coats for it to work how it should. I have washed my car many times with no peeling at all. If it does it bad...take it up and move to another option!

DO NOT, DO NOT plastidip and then use regular paint on top and think it will peel up if you want to remove it...IT WONT!

Not really. If you are removing from boat it prob takes 30min to an hour to get it out which is simple but 24 hours to wait on the paint and another 24 hours to wait on the clear. Rushing this job will leave you with half a$$ work. Needs to be realllyyyyyyyyyy clean and properly primed to have a good adhesion of paint.

If he were going to actually sand, prime, paint, and clear then yes it would take multiple coats and days to look right.

If doing plastidip all you have to do is clean the surface with some alcohol and then spray. This is what I did on my window trim of my car. I cleaned it, rubbed with alcohol, let that dry, and sprayed 5 coats. It has been on for over a year now. Did the same for my boat vents.

ah must have missed where he said he was gonna dip it. I'd still atleast take it off. That stuff is easy to peel off from unwanted places as long as its heavy. Light overspray suckssssssss

Over-spray does suck with any paint! Clay bar is your friend with that.
