Ok.. 8 hours of my life later.. Plasti Dipped my car

EDIT*** 12/13/2013

I changed it up a bit, pulled a few pieces off, cleaned it up and did the wheels. Sorry its a night picture, I'll get day ones tomorrow!!



ALSO If you are going to comment: Please read this
If you are just going to put "i hate it" or "looks cheap" that is fine.. but why waste either of our time?
If you arent a plasi dip fan, dont even comment this look isn't for you.
If there is a reason you don't like it, I would really like to hear why, might help me chose my next color.
Just try to have "constructive criticism" Not the mindless troll comments..
Thanks

I havent put back the fog lights, and lower mesh grill

I took a TON of during pics, but for now juts posting the final


12/09/2013**EDIT** NEW PIC, took off a bit of it to see how it would look. Thoughts?
And thanks all for the comments, I took into consideration what people were saying about mirrors, went one step further and did the side skirts too. Since i am taking it all off this week i didnt think it would hurt.



**Edit**
Lol man some people get so serious, they don't like what i did and just get so personally offended, People relax! One it's not your car, and two its just something i wanted to try out!

And this is the nice daytime pic.

I'd spend my 8 hours differently, but what's important is that YOU like it.

And you do.

I like it, I think the side mirrors should be black.

My eyes shot directly to your wheels instead. Not a fan.

I do like red though.

Is it just the pic? Or is it uneven? I know it's matte, but the color doesn't look evenly applied.

I would definitely try white on the mirror caps. Would complement your headlights.

White on the wheels is kinda a toss. But that's the beauty of plastidip.

IMO a matte red is too aggressive for a non-sport pre-lci front bumper. The plasti dip looks fine, more or less like matte red wrap.

I'd never do this personally. That said...

You did a good job spraying, looks evenly coated.
I think it would've looked better if you had dipped the mirrors flat black? They stand out to me, but it might just be the overall flow, with the wheels.
It also looks a bit pink to me, but that could be the camera or lighting.

Good job on doing your own thing.

yeah looks like primer.. you should try clear coat next time.

and.... red face black lip.. no no... black face red lip. your wheels will look funny like a red hub cap floating where your wheels should be.

and yes, glossy black side mirrors
