Definitely value everyone's opinion but believe me pictures don't do it justice we will do a photoshoot this weekend. It honestly looks just like flat black vinyl.

However I would not recommend this over vinyl or repainting the car if you have those options; obviously those options would be better. We just like to try new things with the cars we always have new weekend projects.

Agreed. If you want to permanently paint your car, go for it. If you want vinyl to last 3/4 plus years and like the color, go for it. But if you want to change things up randomly without permanently painting or paying 2k for vinyl. Plasti dip does the job, but it isnít a long term solution.

this weekend was probably the perfect test to see how it holds up.

Don't agree with the color change, loved the look of your car. Are you gonna be out at bokampers this week? i'd love to check it out in person.

Car looks good Chris! All you need is a front lip and a decent drop. Bring the car next time to Hooters

I can see how the creative and artistic types can capitalize on this trend. Applying different colors and all kinds of different designs.

Thanks bro. Iíll rock the custom front lip, splitter and braces if you can make them. As for as the drop, it is decent. You must mean a more decent, proper drop like yours.

Not going to lie. When I read the thread title I rolled my eyes and came in to see the splotchy results. When I saw the after shots I was pleasantly surprised. Came out much better than I expected it would. Kudos.
