    there are numerous people on here that have tried thehydro dip process. For the most part i believe everyone is fairly happy. I will be picking up 4 pairs today that i am just getting back. The reviews have been very positive, and the options are near endless.

    i hear dip doesn't hold up too well to oily surfaces... which is why they say its best not to use it on car door handles or other often used surfaces ...

    won't stick to oily and holding up to oily environments are 2 separate things. prep is key in any finish or coating, and oil is an enemy

    For prep I recommend cleaning the item with rubbing alcohol or mineral spirits.

    Then 3-5 light coats and you'll be good.
