Talking ~The Truth Behind PlastiDip!~

IT COMES OFF LIKE BUTTA

So as many of you e90ers know... I've had mine dipped in white. Looked amazing
I was a bit bored today, so I decided to revert...

Here is what it looked like..




And, more found here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=697179

Here is what is going on during the process!



Seriously.. comes off like butter.


I've always wanted the CF trunk look :P

Two face!? Batman!?

Wow... That looks so good

Here we gooo...

I made a pouch


END PRODUCT:


I was bored, and I decided to leave a few parts white LOL.

I just want to see the weird faces I get at the gas station with a white gas cap

Home sweet home.


For those of you who are wondering, it took me about 5 hours to take off.
But, the paint looks flawless, and I couldn't be happier with this product. I plan to do something else soon.... Custom color !?

What

Could

I

Possibly

Be

Talking

About

!?















DOHH!~!!!!


**** Credit to E90Company@e90post.com ****

Hehe..


TO BE CONTINUED!!!!!




Thanks!

Haha, the removal looks like a lot of fun. New color choice is pretty cool, too.

The white actually looked great - other cars that have posted have looked splotchy, like they didn't use enough coats or just didn't spend enough time on the process. The whole process of dipping/peeling though, is just too long in my book.

I like it white. Curious to see what's next.

Is it just me, but was it fun to peel that stuff off? I've dipped parts of my car and I had just as much fun peeling it as I did spraying it.

Clay bar, wash, wax and it's back to pre-spray condition.
