Brad -

I contacted Plasti-dip a couple of days ago. They gave me the following list of retail outlets that carry their product in the midwest U.S. This is not a complete list, but should get you started:

Home Depot
Any True Value hardware store
Most K-Mart or Super K-Mart stores
Builders Square
Ace Hardware
DIY Home Warehouse

Look in the "Paint" section -

I was also advised recently by 3D Systems that there is a vacuum impregnation process that can strengthen Actua parts beyond the Plasti-Dip. I will forward specific product/process information when I get it ...

Dear Leighton and RPML:
For those interested in trying the "Plasti-Dip" spray but are unable to find
it in a store, here is the manufacturer:

PlastiDip International
3760 Flowerfield Road
Circle Pines, MN 55014
612/785-2156 or toll free at:

The spray can comes in three colors - black, yellow and red. Also - the
clear spray works very well but is harder to find in stores. If you use the
clear, make sure you coat the part well enough. The clear is a little
harder than the color to see how much product you have sprayed on.

I believe you will really like the product. It also completely takes away
the stickiness/tackiness and gives the part a very tactile feel.

Good luck!
