Not sure how you do this but it looks like you can do some good shit w it. People will always hate but looks like you have access to do some creative stuff.

A+ for being unique and creative, also if it's your cup of tea and you like the looks then you shouldn't care what others say.

At the end of the day it's changeable.

thanks for the positive feedback guys. everyone is entitled to their own opinion, no harm done. i like how it looks and all, but i am going to eventually change it up for something more low key like the smoked cf..then do all the other pieces as well.

Hey that's some great creativity! I would go with something a little more low key but it's your car. Could you tell us more about how you did it, is it plastidip, or where you get supplies to do something like this?

wow that mean I'm going to get flamed when I post pics of mine. My engine cover is "flip-flop" and sparkly. I like it. I think if you did the engine cover it'll look even better. If you are doing car shows, it is a good show stopper. My vote....keep it it looks good. Its not like you are riding around and EVERYONE can see it all the time. Its under the hood...

I've seen the demo for the hydro-dip and it's a sick concept but I think that this was poorly composed. Plus one for creativity, though.

I understand you were just trying something different but this doesn't really work, IMO.

I have yet to see a dipped or hydrographic "CF" style print look anywhere close to real CF. It looks like snakeskin to me. I would've stuck with the marble look but maybe a black and silver theme, not blue.

some valve covers I did with tinted clear. the tint makes it look very realistic. I will probably tint clear the piece when I get some time
