It's space gray, it's not a bad color, and most people seem to like it, I just really wanted graphite, which was too hard to find, and I'm tired of looking at gray. So I want to do something that really stand out

You could probably PM some of the guys on here that have dipped their cars if you have any questions. Here's one for example:

Or
Has anyone attempted plasti dipping their entire car and how hard was it?
Yup I actually dipped my chrome trim around my car. But your two favorite boys gave me a bunch of crap about it so I stripped it and went vinyl instead lol.

But I sprayed 6 coats. Left it to dry for about 30 mins after each coat. I think it would work fine. But if someone scratches it, it will show or when you clean it you have to be very careful. So I decided against a full dip. I was gonna go white.

Much better idea then dipping your whole car look like shit 95% of the time compared to vinyl which looks 1000 times better. You get what you pay for remember that, and don't forget that when your ready to buy some wheels don't cheap out
