Thanks for the comment guys. I loved it. No, the fridge.... I don't even know... I didn't do it XD

Also, it held up well. I am just moving on.. Hopefully that color

Thanks for the nice comments and the paint still feels amazing

Wow! Haven't seen an entire car plastidipped before.

Any detailed pics of the plastidip applied to the car? I'm curious of the texture.
Also, how hard was it to wash?

It's been on for a few months. It was still on there like a sticker. I decided to take it off because I was bored with it

Easy to wash, smooth..... There are a couple spots where I have some overspray, but that's my fault. Easy to wash. Easier than OEM paint.

Could u pm me or post where U purchased it from?
Also was it hard to wash the dirt off? I plasti-dipped my wheels one time and there was brake dust build up to where it didn't look black anymore.
