I never thought I'd say this about a plastidipped car..... But that looks sick.

Looks good! I must admit I was expecting wheels or a plastidipped grill/trim... Not normally a fan of plastidip, but maybe it is just this particular color. I am definitely a fan of satin or matte paint jobs. I'm sure it took some effort for the whole car. I hope it holds up to the elements... and if it doesn't you can take it off!

I think it looks good. The wheels need to be a different color though (maybe a darker color). How do you remove the dip?

This kind of plastdipping is an overdone trend. You need to take it to the next level if you want to stand out. Forget about masking anything. Just plastidip everything. Paint, wheels, tires, brakes, exhaust, lights. Also the interior. Just open up the doors and plastidip EVERYTHING.

Because who cares: it just come right off!

C'mon guys. This is boring. I need someone to be different for a change.

well when your bored, have 7 dollars and wanna "mod" your car. it doesnt get any better then plasti-dip.

its like were professional painters for that amount of time, if it sucks, so what lol if its good then its kept on. So many people want to get their wheels, trim, grilles etc painted black. Why pay to get it painted at a shop, power coated, or vinyled when it cost roughly...60-70x more then dipping and is permanent rather then removable. Not only does it protect the paint, but it give a nice matte finish when done correctly.
