Well, It's official....I plastidipped FTW

VIDEO IS UP!!!

I am sure I will get some serious haters, but at the end of the day, its what you like that matters and I love it! 6 Hrs of work and 7 coats later, the Sparkling Graphite Metallic became Blue. Also, in the next couple of days, I will have a 30 second video of the time lapse of the process. Pretty cool



Before




Coat 1



Finish





Thanks for looking

Looks great from afar, how does it look up close, does it have a even finish all around without any texture. If so great work

Have you ever seen it up close? It looks and feels like suede. I have no clue why people want to do this on the outside of their car, good luck washing it too. Unless the texture changes within time but it looks like shit in person.

I came in here thinking you plastidipped your wheels or something, but wow it's your whole car! Props to you for even trying this. How do you think it will hold up through car washes, rain, etc?

Haha same here. I had a WTF face.
It should hold well. I have my grill plati dip for 3+ years now. 80% highway driving, with 7 coats on it. Still fine. Worse comes to worse he can just add some on top if he needs to.

Looks sick btw.

I will get some close up for the people that are bashing it...It looks just as amazing close up as the photos from 5 feet do.

Washing it is sooooo much easier then a normal car. Soap and water on, rinse off, no need to dry. No water spots.

Car washes are probably a no no. A simple 5 minute wash at home is only needed about every week, whenever it rains, it actually washes the car. Win

Thanks bro, I've had my grills and window trim for a while with no issues. Now the trim is blue, and I am trying to come up with a good solution to get them back to black, she still has a little work left in her.
