All the credit for the creation of this technique and product used goes to:...

So you sprayed paint thinner on your car? Is it ok to do that?

Ive seen a bunch of cars do this. However I think it looks kinda off. Would only suggest it for one off parts, not the whole car. Ie rims, grills, roof

Can we have an update on how the dip has faired over time.
I'm considering doing a clear plasti-dip on my space grey , for the matt look ( I quite like the colour).

Hoping for an update on how its held up as well...

I was planning on doing a gloss white with pearlizer and gloss coating which supposedly protects its a bit.

Leaving my roof and mirror caps black...

Also you stated you bought 3 gallons of stuff... how many coats did you get outta that?
