Plastidip SUCKS!!!!!

Had some spare time today so decided to try out the plastidip on my diffuser. I ripped it off immediately after I installed it. Needless to say, it looks cheap as hell and I would advise anyone thinking about it to stop thinking about it lol. It actually looks somewhat half-decent in the photos but in real life it looks like ass.




What my diffuser NOW looks like (again)

i dont really understand why you plastidipped it in the first place.
you plastidipped it the same color it already was?
if you use it in a spray gun it comes out much better.

Not sure what you mean but my diffuser is painted montego blue. I was just curious how it would look like all black.

maybe if you suck at using a spray can plastidip look bad. But if your not incompetent it comes out really smooth and looks great. My friend has a plastidipped car that look just like flat paint from a body shop
