Exp. Plasti-dipping whole car?

Well I've been browsing some videos and found some kits on dipyourcar.com. It doesn't look THAT hard but I wanted to see if anyone here has any war stories to tell about this stuff? Application, pros/cons, durability, etc. Kit comes with 4gals of plasti paint pre-thinned, 1 gal of gloss finish, sprayer, wax stripper, respirator, and tape. Thinking about going blue or black on body and white on rims.

Just because they say it comes off and doesn't ruin anything doesn't necessarily mean it won't. As long as you are will to take that risk and are aware of the consequences.
@BLAZE2099 is a plasti-dip conasouwer, maybe he can give you his feed back.

That's just the thing... what are the risks? I can't seem to find any besides wasted time if I mess it up. What will it not come off of? I've watched it peel right off of any surface. Or if it was too thin, rubbed of with a cloth. It just seems like a good way to buy some time til I can afford a pro paint job.

Here's a link I just found. It gives pros and cons of plati-dip. I think it's worth reading.
