Finally found the time to install the Plasti Dipped shaft on the bike and conduct trial runs. What seemed to be a good idea turned out to be a failure after only a mile. It had really good bite at first but it quickly wore away. The Plasti Dip was brushed on (3 coats) with glass blasting media applied in 2 coats. The Plasti Dip was allowed to dry 1 full day between coats so curing was not the reason for the failure.
